It was just last week when Buffalo announced they'd be manufacturing the first PC3-8500 DDR3 Modules. Though the chipsets and other hardware are still a ways off, Gigabyte is nearing completion of their first-gen DDR3 motherboards. They are planning to unveil their "Bearlake" platform motherboards at the 2007 Computex. On top of coming with a host of higher-quality board components that increase reliability, the new board will come in five versions and dubbed the "Ultra Durable 2" series.

All five boards will be based on the P35 chipset, with each board catering to a different market. Official release dates aren't known yet, though likely more will be revealed at Computex.
