Looking at that mobo revision chart,, its intresting to see that the 4004 and the 40A6 boards have the addition of 2 capacitors that the other boards dont have,,, now i find it strange that the mobo maker would have just left off the 2 capacitors when they went from the 4004 board and then went thru 4 more board revisions and then put them back in place on the 40A6,, (the last mobo we know of right now) highly suspicoiusoius
but since i believe from my basic electronic theory,, is not a capaitor just a place to hold electricity,?? or to hold a higher charge of electricity in a storage place,, to be distributed ???
anyway,, if the only 2 boards that AW says can take the 9700 upgrade right now from the 9600 has to have the mobo boards with the capaitors on it,, then it would mean that ATI is needing higher power, which we know this to operate properly ???? which of course makes me wonder why nVirdia does not have problems going from their 5600 to 5700 with no problems..
now i know i may be way off on this, but assuming ATI power problems with their vid cards,,i wonder how they could get around this??? without a mobo replacement ??? but then again how is nVirdia doing it ???
just thoughts i was thinking,,,
