According to ASUS "no",  but I am guessing that this is because they haven't updated the BIOS
I thought that all socket F boards should support shanghai opterons?

> Do you want to run the board with a mixed setup of both CPUs?
not really, well I would if was possible, I just assumed that it wasn't.

>> A. does FAM10 refer to 45nm Opterons (eg 2376)

OK, thanks

> Is your shanghai a CPU from a store? (= no engineering sample)
yes, from shop in UK

> The terminology is that the northbridge is in the CPU
thanks, I think I understand, so older style boards had separate northbridge chips but the socket f boards + opteron have northbridge in the CPU?
