    Anybody currently using one of these dual Opteron boards with Win XP Pro
    x64? As I peruse the spec sheet, I'm wondering if the nForce 4 Pro SATA 3.0
    functionality is supported in the unified platform beta driver. All other
    built in features seem to show up as having an available driver on nVidia's
    and Broadcom's site.

    Here's the link to the Asus page on the mobo:

    Any input would be appreciated.

    NForce 4 does not require sata drivers.

  3. I ordered one of these for a client yesturday, and I expect it to be in
    by the end of the week. If you don't get an answer by then, I'll reply ;).

    FYI, SATA2 (300mb/s) has no real advantage over SATA1 (150mb/s), as hard
    disks usually get 40-80mb/s in real world situations ;). If your going
    to do a huge RAID, you might see some performance gains, but still very
    marginal.
