Tech Report has got their hands on some information about DFI's upcoming motherboards.

They heard that a LANParty motherboard based on the nForce 680i will be launched before the end of the month, but that the company isn't planning to release any motherboards based on the mid-range nForce 650i.
Intel's P965 chipset won't get the LANParty treatment, either, although an Infinity series board based on the P965 is in the works. DFI has also reserved resources for future LGA775 boards based on former ATI chipsets now offered by AMD. We actually have the company's RD600-based LANParty ICFX3200-T2R/G in-house for testing; expect a full review soon.

Interestingly, we've learned that DFI will be building a second LANParty board based on Nvidia's nForce 680i chipset. This board is being crafted specifically for a gaming rig that will be sold by OEM giant HP, and the system may even carry LANParty branding.
