ASRock's latest AliveDual eSATA2 motherboard combines the M1695 chipset, originally designed by ULi, with Nvidia's nForce 3 250, which launched in 2003, to create a modern mash-up that may sound bizarre, but is also strangely compelling.

Thanks to AMD's commitment to backwards compatibility, the AliveDual eSATA2 will still be able to rock quad-core Phenom X4 CPUs, if that is what you want, and ASRock has had the foresight to build in support for up to 8GB DDR2 memory.
