As far as specifications are concerned, the Renaissance II is identical to that of the first iteration of the board. It still has 4 PCIe X16 slots with support for CrossFireX and 3-Way SLI, still has room for 24GB of triple channel DDR3, and still has the same black and orange layout.

The few changes that Foxconn has made are simply those that are irrelevant to all but the most avid enthusiasts. The cooling solution has been changed and the heapipe has been removed. Also removed are the onboard power, reset, and clear CMOS buttons, the two SAS ports, and the debug LED, all of which should have absolutely no effect on performance.
