Man have you got it out for this company Madcat
Seriously, there is no way (and I'm not doubting any of your technical know-how MC, I bow down to your l33t machine knowledge...for real bro) that AW would be touting the DCddr ram as hard as they are without actually having it ON the laptops.
I think Madcat had it right in an earlier post that they have just not updated the technical specs on the website for the Mobo.
I made it a point to confirm this data for myslef before placing my order on on Saturday. I got the same response that basically said "Yes, and you can test it when you get it...the benchmarks are amazing!"
And yes, there IS one born every minute...this minute its me

I spoke to one of the sales persons who spoke to one of the technicians at AW, she said that the tech told her that the mobo has indeed been changed on the newer area51m's to support dual channel. Ordered mine today!!!!!!!!

I just got off the phone with an alienware technician, I asked about Sis 648FX revision 1 and 2.
I mentioned to the technician that the SIS website says that the 648FX doesnt support duel channel, but the 655FX does and that the Alienware Area51m's do not have the 655FX.
He told me that as a oem buyer from sis and many other companies that they may special order or customize the products (in this case motherboards) that they order from the vender. He also told me that this meens that the details listed by the maker (sis) may not be the same details with the same product that alienware uses.
