Wie wir im November erfahren haben wird der 680i mit dem Wolfdale nur einen der beiden neuen 45 nm Prozessoren von Intel unterstützen. Der Yorkfield wird offiziell nicht unterstützt, erst die 7. Chipsatzserie soll volle Unterstützung bieten. Für alle Kunden von EVGA die ein registriertes Mainboard mit 680i-Chipsatz und der Teilenummer 122-CK-NF68-XX besitzen (122-CK-NF68-RX ist von der Aktion ausgeschlossen) bietet das Unternehmen daher eine Umtauschaktion an. Für 79,99 Euro können Kunden ihr Mainboard gegen ein neues mit 780i-Chipsatz umtauschen. Das neue Mainboard wird dann ebenfalls wieder die vollen 2 Jahre Gewährleistung bieten. Kunden von außerhalb Deutschlands und den USA müssen die Rücksendekosten zum Käufer minus 7 Euro selber tragen. Die Aktion ist auf 60 Tage beschränkt.
