i845PE or i845GE?

Hello,

in the my computershop around the corner a have seen the Albatron i845PE and i845GE boards today.

What is with the Epox boards? Will they have a +12V connector and will Epox release infos after the official release?

They will have a 12v connector if its needed. Uppon official release you will get information about the boards.

Hehehe, I am still waiting for that 4GEA+(i845GE) board, I know it will kick some a$$. Besides SerialATA, Firewire, RAID and so on, you can even set(not just lock) the AGP and PCI frequency in BIOS independant of FSB !!!!
Now that's overclocking.

who needs S-ATA at the moment?
Hope for a S-ATA free board with +12V Adapter to forget the BEAR problems.

Don't need the S-ATA interface, but the cables are nice That's why I like ABIT's Serillel solution with adapters for the Parallel ATA-harddrives to Seriel ATA cables...

what adapters are used?

Is this a converter from UDMA to SATA with a controller chip?

If this is the solution than you will lose a lot of speed. The converter chips will never give you the full speed. Look at UDMA to SCSI, UDMA to USB 2.0 solution.

Only pure SATA hdds will speed up. The first will be the Barracuda V and Maxtor ??? in 2003.

Yes - it is a PATA->SATA converter and it has to have a controller chip on it to function. I haven't tested it so can't say anything about the performance, but it's very likely to lower the performance (it'll definately not going to raise :clown

Seagate, Western Digital and Maxtor have announced their coming HD and I'm hoping that they come rather soon 'cause I need some more storage =/. But I guess that you're right when you say that they're only coming to the market in 2003 *sigh*

EP-4GEA+ doesn't have serial ATA.

Even better, usually SerialATA sacrifices one IDE RAID connector.
Are there any pics of the board that you can share ?
