    Built on the long-anticipated Athlon 64 CPU and based on VIA's high performance KT800 chipset, the KV8 MAX3 promises to bring AMD fans the ultimate platform for gaming, multimedia and insane overclocking. Being a MAX product, the KV8 is loaded with features including 6 channel Serial ATA RAID, 6 channel audio, Gigabit LAN, SPDIF In and Out, USB 2.0 and Firewire. The KV8-MAX3 also comes with the Abit OTES thermal solution for the PWM mosfets and capacitors, ensuring that your system will stay cool and stable, even under the most extreme overclocking missions.

    probably because the KT800 is available and the nForce3 isn't :)
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    amd_man2003: It will be officially announced at Computex later this month, so I would expect it to start shipping soon after that, probably early October. Not sure about the price.

    amd_man2003: Abit like most mainboard manufacturers build prototype motherboards with all the chipsets available, before deciding which one to use. I assume they must have preferred VIA's KT800 chipset.

    Athlon 64 preview, nForce3 at 2.0GHz
