When looking at some of ASRock's recent motherboard offerings, we at Phoronix have been stunned by their budget yet creative products. These motherboards range from the 939SLI32-eSATA2 to the 775XFire-eSATA2. Today at Phoronix we have the 939NF4G-SATA2 motherboard. The ASRock 939NF4G-SATA2 motherboard uses NVIDIA's GeForce 6100 and nForce 410 MCP Chipset. Other features for this AMD Athlon 64 motherboard include integrated NV44 video, ASRock Hybrid Booster, PCI Express x16, 7.1 channel audio, and Serial ATA 2.0. We have run the ASRock 939NF4G-SATA2 through its paces under Linux and now we have our results to share. As this motherboard has been around for a few months today, primarily we are focusing upon its benchmarking performance rather than the traditional complete review.

Opening up the ASRock 939NF4G-SATA2 motherboard retail unit, on top of the microATX motherboard we were left with the user manual, I/O panel, one power cable, one SATA cable, one ribbon FDD cable, one ribbon IDE cable, and an expansion slot COM port header. Like other ASRock products, the packaging and contents were simple yet reliable.
