Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI Intel sneak peak  - NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI Intel sneak peak
Wed, August 23 2006 | 4:35AM | PermaLink Feedback?
There was reason enough for NVIDIA to release an nForce 500 series for Intel's processors (Core 2 Duo compatible) for a lot of reasone, pretty much .. Conroe rocks and you need to have a platfrom ready for that !. Today guru of 3d will be taking a brief look at the reference NVIDIA NFORCE 590 SLI mainboard. It by all means is test done with a beta reference board that is not 100% finished as the final product will eb available at the end of August. Nonetheless .. even with this very Beta reference mainboard I was shocked by the combination of Conroe and NFORCE 590 SLI for Intel, in very positive way I must add. In this review we'll have a brief overview of that technology and obviously the cool new features as I just mentioned above. Also we'll have a look at some really cool new CAS 3 DDR2 memory from Corsair in combination with a rather inexpensive yet really impressive Conroe E6600 processor running at default on a 1066 MHz front side bus. As always we'll do something special though and that special factor is that we'll passively water-cool this processor mounted into this NFORCE 590 SLI mainboard to see if we can still overclock it. And all that during a heat wave here in Europe. The direct competitor for this setup obviously is the AMD version of the NFORCE 590 SLI mainboard armed with an AMD FX-62 processor, will this system be able to beat that twice as expensive solution performance wise?
