ASUS Announces P5K3 Premium with 2GB Onboard DDR3

The new P5K3 come with 2GB of the latest DDR3 RAM guaranteed to overclock above DDR3 1600. Quite a claim.

ASUS latest offering is based on Intels P35 chipset which supports a host of processors including Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme, Core 2 Duo, CrossFire and sports solid copper heatpipes for cooling.

The motherboard does not have any spare DIMM slots available to add additional RAM at a later date which begs the question 'How do I upgrade? I need more than 2GB'. Well it seems you can't, although without seeing the board in person I can not confirm this is the case. It is worth noting this is DDR3 RAM, many enthusiasts are upgrading from 2GB of DDR2 RAM, perhaps 2GB of DDR3 is sufficient... For how long?
