It's likely that as we move further into the year or early next year we will move our Intel platform to a Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Extreme CPU and update our test software. Unfortunately, the AW8D is not compatible with the new CPUs and therefore I couldn't take advantage of the new CPUs with this board to start a new platform.
