All hail the king?

DFI has put together yet another strong AMD Athlon64 motherboard. The DFI LANPartyUT NF590 SLI-M2R/G will impress even the most jaded computer enthusiast. It's the best Socket AM2 motherboard on the market for tweaking.

Curiously, the overclocking results PCSTATS saw from this platform weren't the quickest we've ever seen, but there is no denying that the LANPartyUT board has good potential with the right combination of hardware.

Retailing for about $233 CDN ($206 US, £109 GBP), the DFI LAN LANPartyUT NF590 SLI-M2R/G is pricey. Of course you get the usual integrated list of peripherals; dual Gigabit network cards, IEEE 1394a, an additional Serial ATA II controller and a 7.1 channel high definition audio controller. Expansion is covered by three open PCI slots, PCI Express x4 and PCI Express x8 slots. Not mention dual PCI Express x16 slots which are SLI compatible.

Over all, I think it's safe to say that the DFI LANPartyUT NF590 SLI-M2R/G performed well in all the benchmarks we through at it. IT handled SYSMark 2004, 3DMark05, FarCry and even Doom 3 with ease. Often it came in ahead of the Asus M2-CROSSHAIR and Foxconn C51XEM2AA; both of which are pretty quick in their own right.

The DFI LANPartyUT NF590 SLI-M2R/G was a moderate overclocker, hitting a 320 MHz motherboard clock speed. The real beauty of this board was its ability to bring out the best of the surrounding hardware. For instance, some quick tests with memory that's available in the PCSTATS test labs showed us that memory can be pushed faster on the LANPartyUT NF590 SLI-M2R/G motherboard than say the Foxconn C51XEM2AA, and in some cases significantly better! Team the DFI LANPartyUT up with a strong supporting cast of computer hardware and you'll have a system that flies!

If you're building yourself a new Socket AM2 system and are looking at going high end, you owe it to yourself to check out the DFI LANPartyUT NF590 SLI-M2R/G motherboard. It pretty much beats out every other Socket AM2 motherboard we compared it against, and for the AMD family is one of the best platforms at the moment.
