On the difference of Intel D850EMVR/D850EMVRL from D850EMV2/D850EMV2L
You might have been noticing the new Intel D850EMVR/D850EMVRL motherboards in price lists recently, wondering why products marked D850EMVR/D850EMVRL are marked D850MV/D850EMV2 like the good old i850E boards. So, how do you distinguish the new boards and what are they anyway?
As you all know, on October 7 along with the announcements of 845GE, 845PE, and 845GV, Intel released the "enhanced" 850E, supporting dual-channel 32-bit PC1066 and Hyper-Threading, unlike the usual 850E lacking this official support. That day also brought the line of new motherboards, including the D850EMVR/D850EMVRL (the latter supporting LAN) on this "enhanced" 850E.
The thing is that the company shed the light on D850EMVR at its website page and offered it for sale, but had left the marking the same. We won’t describe the actual differences of 850E and "enhanced" 850E here, but for you to understand, here’s the marking difference between D850EMV2 and the new D850EMVR. This might be critical for somebody.
