Why is cleanup necessary[edit]

Why does this need to be cleaned up? Specify please. Carillonatreides 01:11, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

no 690T chipset[edit]

this name is taken from ATI papers leaked a (ref 6 and 7 in article) by several sites (including earlier versions of this article) that do not care to use precise names and mix up prefixes. If you look in reference 7 you see the northbridge RS690T in the supposed 690T chipset (better version of ref 7 image here; or you can copy image adress in ref 7 and load it as webpage adress). This northbridge corresponds to M690T chipset.Dream caster 20:56, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

The "T" suffix was meant for "Premium" class chipset, according to the "new" naming scheme. But since DAAMIT uses 690, the 690 is lacking the IGP and 1 PCI-E slot, it's okay to stick with the "690 chipset" name, but I know that the 690 is still unknown in status, it may be cancelled from day one after that "leaked" presentation from ChileHardware. -- 11:45, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

To the person who put up the entire product list...[edit]

Please provide more information about the motherboards for comparison, such as the whether it supports HDMI and other extra features. -- 03:33, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

benchmarks and tests[edit]

every article of this type ought to link to benchmarks and other objective tests of the product.

memory capacity[edit]

I was hoping this page would say how much memory the northbridges in this series can address. 4gb dimms are becoming affordable so a 4-slot motherboard could in principle have 16gb, and I'd like to configure some 690G-based boards that way (buying new boards is not an option). Any idea if that's possible? Thanks. (talk) 05:25, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

asus makes horrible boards. M2A-VM is one for the record books. Only their expensive stuff is good. Horrible manufacturer in my book. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:59, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
