HotHardware has a preview
of Computex 2007. Hexus has a large database
of Computex news which contains a lot of good information. Overclockers Club
reviews a XFX
nForce 680i LT motherboard.
XFX makes motherboards? Why yes, yes they do! You have known them in the
past for their Nvidia video card lineup. Now we can see if their successes on
that front translate into success on the motherboard front. The XFX 680i LT
SLI is one of the latest offerings from their motherboard lineup. This board
is promoted towards high end pc users and gamers that want performance on a
budget, not as a hardcore enthusiast board. That distinction falls to the 680i
SLI model. The 680iLT chipset has been called the "lite" chipset because
it is supposedly a stripped down lower cost version of the 680 chipset. Does
that translate into lower performance? We shall see. This board features Quad
core support,1333 fsb, 800mhz DDR2,2 x16x Pci-e slots for SLI configurations.
In other words support for the latest Cpu's ,memory and graphics solutions.
Having had the opportunity to use some of the latest 680 chipset offerings on
the market I am curious to see how the LT version on a true Nvidia reference
design holds up.
