Finally we come to the classic SuperPi 32M benchmark, an important benchmark in terms of historical relevance. I always like seeing a manufacturer use components which have a good reputation for quality on their products. The motherboard is very well labelled, if you do not happen to know what a header does just look closely on the PCB and you’ll find a description. AMD themselves had a go with their AMDbased motherboard, but that was more to do with getting the Athlon off and running. Their signature twinbank memory controllers are back, seemingly feed on silicon steroids in the interim months. The current advantage of Serillel is that you can add an additional IDE drive to your system for a total of five instead of four.

It supported a range of K7 architecture AMD processors and core designs that spanned the period from to Soft Menu III, don’t ya love it? Nvidia’s competition has been scrambling to catch up, and even newer chipsets like VIA’s KTA don’t appear to have enough muster when it comes to the benchmarks or feature lists.

ABIT NF7-M nForce2 IGP Motherboard Review –

AMD themselves had a go with their AMDbased motherboard, but that was more to do with getting the Athlon off and running. It was manufactured using a nm 0. I always like seeing a manufacturer use components which have a good reputation for quality on their products.

ABIT K7 Motherboard NF7-S NVIDIA nForce Chipset Motherboard

On paper, the nForce was the ultimate in chipset technology, on the actual front line; the nForce had some major flaws which we will re-cap on now. Socket A motherboards supported a broad number of chipset designs that chopset the VIA KT and Nvidia nForce Ultra series, both popular choices with motherboard manufacturers.


The improvement in prefetch intelligence comes partially from an improvement in the prefetching algorithm that detects when to prefetch data streams.

Won’t you please settle this for us. We had a look at the revised nForce2 chipset a couple of months ago.

This is definitely the best overclocking nForce 2 motherboard.

Beginners Guides Cases and Access. Stacked with technology and useful features, ABIT have their interpretation up and raring to go. ASUS has three boards in the top ten and 5. Subscribe to our Newsletter.

The VIA KT and KT may well have been the most popular in terms of units shipped globally, but it lacked the necessary performance features that overclockers craved. An extra fan header is also located just above the AGP slot, a good thing if you intend to add extra cooling to a temperamental videocard.

Although raw CPU frequencies are not really treated as true benchmarks today, they ng7-s an important performance metric for most overclockers. Therefore, the NF7-S supports no more than four IDE drives total, which really shouldn’t be an issue with the vast majority chipseg users and yes, even power users.

The successor to the original nForce, aptly titled nForce2, promised greater levels of features, performance, stability, and a relatively low market price. First off the memory controller, while being able to nforcce double the memory bandwidth of the KTA, the chipsets engine didn’t distribute the extra bandwidth to the extra devices like the onboard video, Hyper-transport link and so on the way it should have.


Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3. We have not tested any other boards for the AMD platform that were able to do this until now.

Find other tech and computer products like this over at Amazon Canada’s website. The nForce Ultra was most popular with overclockers due to its ability reach higher clock speeds with independent CPU, memory and AGP overclocking. With five bit PCI slots you won’t have any problems adding in future expansion cards if desired either.

Doing straight out of nforcce box is an amazing feat in itself. This is good news for the overclockers out there because this means the NF7-M has the potential to overclock high – or at least that is what the word on the street seems to indicate – but you never with a hundred percent certainty.

Motherboard Memory Lane: AMD Socket A, Abit NF7-S V2.0 and AMD Athlon 2500+

Quick summation shows that we have support for FSB processors, twinbank technology capable of delivering up to 6. And now, they are back with the second generation nForce chipset! Intel’s Desktop Chipset Roadmap October, Still, it was a remarkable effort for a chip house that chlpset then, only designed graphics processors!
