Massive nVidia nForce2 Motherboard Roundup. Privacy policy and Terms of Use.

There are many reasons why the nForce2 chipset has put up such stiff competition. 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. The only hiccup has been a brief issue with some recent drivers, but that looks like a one off.

Let’s take a quick overview of all the motherboards before diving into more detail Abit, ahh wonderful Abit Asis we double the number of lanes from four nfidia eight, it doesn’t allow any of the cars to run faster because there’s a speed limit so the extra lanes go to waste.

VIA, the main rival in the AMD chipset market has only recently released the KT, a chipset that finally offers some real competition to the nForce2. Operations with those types of programs are fairly predictable, but 3D applications like games and 3D rendering programs do not really use DASP since nforcs2 are more unpredictable. First the nForce2-SPP based boards: DASP works on nfocre2 same concept as the hardware prefetch logic’s found in modern processors.

In order for the Athlon processor to take advantage of the extra bandwidth available, nviria processor would have to go through fundamental changes to its architecture so it could send more data cars. Before we take a look at the nForce2 motherboards we have rounded up I think a quick little recap of the background info is a good idea. Amazingly the competition has not been able to mount any nvidiz of counter to the nForce2. There are two independent 64bit 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.

Despite a bit of a delay at the release of the nForce2 chipset, nVidia appears to have learned their lessons well and have not made the same mistakes twice. Consequently, the nForce2 chipset is enjoying widespread popularity among consumers.

From budget to highend, to motherboards with integrated video we have a whole lot of nForce2 goodness coming your way. The nForce2-IGP motherboards are: Beginners Guides Cases and Access. There are many reasons why nVidia’s nForce2 chipset has proven successful so far; it delivers excellent performance, it’s aggressively priced and most importantly it’s an extremely stable and reliable platform.

Things 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. The reasons for the failure were simple, the first nforce chipsets were expensive and bogged down by delay after delay which caused a very late release to market.

Unfortunately feeding an Athlon processor with more bandwidth then it requires is a bit redundant. Once the prediction is made, it’ll automatically load the data into memory before the processor requires it.

As a newbie to the chipset market, nVidia’s original nForce chipset struck out pretty badly despite being fast for its time. What the nForce2 does is look for data that’s constantly accessed and then try to predict what will be needed next.

Dual channel DDR, sounds impressive doesn’t it? Here’s the list of motherboards that we’ll be looking at today.
