The thing looks shitty. Just 2 sockets. At 2 sockets AMD is junk. At  
4 sockets it would be interesting though - yet that's not shown.
Also no prices quoted.

A big problem with the socket-F motherboards from AMD, some years  
ago, was that where 2nd hand the cpu price of AMD was dirt cheap,
not a single motherboard with 2 sockets was real dirt cheap there,  
whereas older design motherboards for intel 2 sockets 54xx series,  
they were like $60 on ebay.
