    I just received 4 more R4DS's and I had one from before the great shortage of March/April 08. I wondered if there would be anything different between them, and i was right (as you can see in the pics below). The chipset is a little different. Anyone know if there is any benefit with the newer ones?

    This is the Older one

    This is the New one

    Anyone know what the difference in the chipset is? i had no luck on google.
