    Any news on the ROG SLI bridge?

    Hey there!

    Since the contest is almost 2 months over I'm just curious if there are any news on the release date. Even something like Q3 or w/e would be nice.

    They must have production problems.. they did that contest over a month ago and I never heard anything about it.. you would think at least one would trickle down to ebay.

    It seems that Asus flip-flopped on their initial reluctance to produce these "small items" - the announcement page was recently updated and the official product page is now up. I notice a smart new Asus design element - some of the bridges are able (with minor adjustment) to fit multiple slot dimensions and configurations.

    I'm guessing the delay is less a production problem (because Taiwan can build anything!), but more a logistics/distribution problem (because Taiwan is far away from a lot of the enthusiast market). A problem is that each vendor will need to stock the full variety of part configurations while each customer will likely purchase only one specific piece.

    For North America, targeted around mid-April for retail. Other regions may have different release schedules so will need to be contacted by the user for confirmation.

    Thanks a lot! Any news on pricing? Did read something about them a few weeks ago. I don't remember them correctly but I'm sure it was something like 65$ - 79$ depending on the bridge.

    Ah, I found it: http://www.pcauthority.com.au/News/4...i-bridges.aspx

    If this is true I can see 80€ - 100€ in Germany. Simply due to .. w/e reason.

    Good and Cheap please! . From what I've seen on the PA279Q ASUS is definitly able to do it fast, cheap (build quality) and sell it expensive. The backlight bleed, balck to grey shift, inhomogenous picture, font ghosting and so on was horrible as heck. I just hope that the 27" version will be way better. Not like 900€ are much for "professional grade" monitors but that did feel like a 100€ taiwan monitor.
