    Rampage Series and Upcoming i7-49XX Series

    First, has anyone been privileged enough to have played with a X79 i7-49XX? The next questions are based on an answer of yes.

    Will the Rampage series motherboards be able to run this new CPU with a simple BIOS update?

    I have been reading the IMC is much stronger than previous SB-E chips. Has anyone confirmed 2400mhz+ memory speeds without issues?

    I am considering the 4930K when released. I may hold onto the 2400mhz Dominator Platinum. But then, maybe this new breed of i7 can run memory much higher without issue.

    Yes all things point to far better "Memory Support" (IMC) out of the box, as including 1866 and 2133 Mhz, not sure about 2400 Mhz (probably so).
    Also, Native Support for PCI-E 3.0, no "hacks" required
    I'm hoping a simply BIOS Update, but thought I also read somewhere about new Chipset (not positive, but know I read it somewhere). That wold also be my question, will current RIVE Support new CPU even if its a new Chipset (BIOS and Drivers ? )

    The X79 Rampage IV Formula has Native support for PCI-E 3.0 if you run ATI cards instead of those POS Nvidia cards that need hacks,found out the hard way,
