ATI Radeon X2. I’m not much of an overclocker though and was happy with x12 which is about where my cheap ram craps out anyways. Unhooked , Jul 6, The nForce2 chipset was released by Nvidia in July as a refresh to the original nForce product offering. Intel Architecture Day. Unfortunately feeding an Athlon processor with more bandwidth then it requires is a bit redundant. Best Nforce2 Ultra motherboard out there?

It’s quite simply the best NF2 board there is. But nvorce2 nice to have. No, create an account now. GrovMar 21, Nforce 2’s are cheap, and have great performance, and compatabily, drivers, etc.

Nforcee2 are totally different if you were to use the integrated GeForce4 MX as the videocard uses a lot of memory bandwidth itself and as you’ll see in the upcoming benchmarks all nForce2 IGP based systems perform just slightly slower then their SPP counterparts. Log in or Sign up. First off, the chipset has a very powerful memory controller which supports dual channel DDR memory – which in theory doubles the available memory bandwidth to the processor.

NVIDIA nForce2

December Learn how and when to remove this template message. The graphics equalizer and speaker settings panel are clean, easy to use and offer some neat customization. I would agree though if you are a halfway advanced user and can deal with, and wrangle with a few potential issues the DFI would be the way to go for FSB. There are two independent beat memory controllers built into the nForce2 Northbridge and when two DIMM’s are installed into each separate memory controller, the nForce2 runs them in parallel which doubles the amount of bandwidth available to the processor.


Jul 4, As a result, the second 64bit memory channel between the north bridge and the memory was almost exclusively available for the GPU.

In the future, Reseller Ratings is a valuable website for checking out on-line retailers. Like the voltage dips super low or some shit? Nfocre2 3, 7.

Nothing but trouble, those chipsets. Jul 3, 6.

Review: NVIDIA nForce2 – Mainboard –

Post a Comment Comment. Lets take a look at what’s new, what’s not and cast a judgemental eye over the whole shooting match to see if NVIDIA have got it right again, maybe even more right than before. Abit, ahh wonderful Abit The package that comes with the Chaintech, however, cannot be beat by another other board.

I have a friend that is a DFI reseller locally and we have messed with the infinity for fun lately this past weekend and I got FSB with an M with a beta bios and a few mods. Funny thing is, my NV card works perfectly in my NF2 mobo Only recently has Dolby Digital live allowed competitors such as Creative’s x-fi line up to offer real time DD 5.


From budget besh highend, to motherboards with integrated video we have a whole lot of nForce2 goodness coming your way. I went through two boards from NewEgg and couldn’t get either one to work.

MiNIMar 19, Both performed very similarly because neither had the IGP and again Athlon XP did not benefit significantly from the added bandwidth because the Athlon XP’s bus was only capable of bandwidth matching a single channel of PC I really don’t know if I’m getting an nForce2 chipset motherboard. At I’m still not very stable. Amazingly the competition has not been able to mount any sort of counter to the nForce2.

Dojo WarlordJul 16, Anyway, Bezt decided to get this one since most of you recomended it and I read the reviews that I found through Google.
