ASRock stellt auf der Computex mit dem K8 Combo ein ungewöhnliches wie interessantes Mainboard vor. Hinter dem Namenszusatz Combo verbirgt sich die Tatsache, dass das Board sowohl über einen Sockel 754 als auch über einen Sockel 939 verfügt - Dual-fähig ist es aber nicht.

Vielmehr soll es dem Anwender den Umstieg von Sockel 754 auf den Sockel 939 erleichtern, weil der Neuerwerb eines Mainboards dann entfällt.
