Although it may sound not very modest, but I believe our readers already know everything or almost everything about mainboards on Intel P965 Express chipset. We have already discussed not only the simplicity and affordable price of Biostar TForce P965 mainboard, but also the sophisticated features of the advanced Asus Commando. The manufacturers hardly have anything to surprise us with, so it is high time we moved on to detailed discussion of solutions of next chipset generation.
Mainboards on new Intel P35 chipset that are coming to replace the P965 have already started selling and they will certainly become out primary subject for discussion very soon. However, while they are still taking off, we suggest taking a look at some other solutions available in the today’s market that are may be of interest to you.
Nvidia nForce 680i LT SLI chipset was announced long ago already, but its formal specifications don’t differ that much from those of the top nForce 680i SLI, even though they are based on initially two different chips. The less demanding users may go with the nForce 650i Ultra without the SLI support, however, there are no that many mainboards on this chipset in stores yet.
At this time only Nvidia nForce 650i SLI based mainboards are worthy competitors to Intel P965 Express based solutions, that is why we decided to pay special attention to them on our site. We have already offered you Asus P5N-E SLI Mainboard Review, which should be considered a basic article. It discusses not only the peculiarities of this particular mainboard, but also the chipset features in general. After that we introduced to youMSI P6N SLI Platinum and ECS NF650iSLIT-A that are also based on Nvidia nForce 650i SLI. Today we are going to add one more solution to this list: abit Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI mainboard.
