One of the biggest things at this year's hilariously quiet CeBIT is the introduction of DDR3-supporting mainboards. Intel are bringing support for the new memory standard this year with their upcoming Bearlake core logic, and a few vendors have boards on display.

ASUS have taken it one step further with a live demo using Qimonda pre-production DIMMs based on what appears to be 1000MHz DRAMs made late last year.

The ASUS demo system uses their P5K3-M mainboard, with ASUS making noise about lots of overclocking headroom and Qimonda's press material for their DDR3 claiming top-end frequencies of 1600MHz (3200MHz DDR).
