ABIT NF7-S NFORCE CHIPSET DRIVER

Soft Menu III, don’t ya love it? ASUS has three boards in the top ten and 5. Today we continue our Mother Memory Lane series, shifting our focus back to the beginning of the last decade, to a time when AMD had the upper hand against Intel in terms of raw performance. Knowing how well those other two iterations of the NF7 platform have performed, I’m sure you’ll agree we have some high expectations about what this board will be able to do, so let’s get started! Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3. It was manufactured using a nm 0.

Review: ABIT NF7-S nForce2 – Mainboard –

The nForce2 DASP now has better prefetching intelligence allowing it to correctly predict data that will be used next more correctly thus increasing efficiency. Besides the two rear USB 2.

Subscribe to our Newsletter. In the Socket A era, we find the enthusiast segment to be quite different with Abit proving to be the motherboard manufacturer of choice with overclockers on HWBOT. Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3. Therefore, the NF7-S supports no more than four IDE drives total, which really shouldn’t be an issue with the vast majority of users and yes, even power users.

The company has two boards in the top ten and 4. Log in Don’t have an account? In the nForce2, a second generation DASP system has been implemented to combat the problems with the first generation. CPU Frequency Although raw CPU frequencies are not really treated as true benchmarks today, they remain an important performance metric for most overclockers.

As such, today’s reviews will not focus on the nForce2 architecture but more on the 8 motherboards we have collected to give you a best of the best look into nForce2 motherboards available today on the market. Quick summation shows that we have support nf7-w FSB processors, twinbank nt7-s capable of delivering up to 6.

We could run any test and the NF7-S passed all of them even ngorce Prime 95 overnight. Second, memory performance was to be upgraded to support Dual Channel DDR memory which was designed to give full memory capability to the latest AMD CPU’s as well as being able to route the extra memory bandwidth to the onboard graphics for the IGP versions and the Hyper-Transport protocols in order to produce a much faster chipset.

The successor to the original nForce, aptly titled nForce2, promised greater levels of features, performance, stability, and a relatively low market price.

Won’t you please settle this for us. And now, they are back with the second generation nForce chipset! Taking advantage of almost everything that the nForce2 has to offer, and adding their legendary Softmenu III BIOS and general stability, it should be a sterling performer.

Today we continue our Mother Memory Lane series, shifting our focus back to the beginning of the last decade, to a time when AMD had the upper hand against Intel in terms of raw performance.

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

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. With five bit PCI slots you won’t have any problems adding in future expansion cards if desired either. Privacy policy and Terms of Use. Still, it was a remarkable effort for a chip house that until then, only designed graphics processors!

Although raw CPU frequencies are not really treated as nv7-s benchmarks today, they remain an important performance metric for most overclockers. Connectivity-wise, the nForce2 now features a six-port USB 2. The general layout of the NF7-M is good, I would have preferred to have the main ATX and auxiliary power connectors elsewhere, but I understand that being close to the MOSFETs provides the cleanest voltage signals to the motherboard powersupply circuit. By reading this site you agree to our cookie policy.

It supported a range of K7 architecture AMD processors and core designs that spanned the period from to Knowing how well those other two iterations of the NF7 platform have performed, I’m sure you’ll chipdet we have some high expectations about what this board will be able to do, so let’s get started!

Despite the lacklustre success of the original nForce chipset, NVIDIA remains adamant in their efforts to aibt the motherboard chipset market. Something I was extremely nfkrce to see was that the NF7-M was only using Rubycon capacitors, nothing else. AMD themselves had a go with their AMDbased motherboard, but that was more to do with getting the Athlon off and running. If hforce were to buy a mid to high end motherboard or AMD “whitebox” system these days, they would be well advised to only seriously consider options which have ‘nVIDIA nForce2 inside.
