ASRock 939SLI32-eSATA2

At the beginning of last month we published our preview of the ASRock 939SLI32-eSATA2, however, now that Fedora Core 5 was released two weeks ago, and we have in our hands the NVIDIA 1.0-8751 Beta Linux display drivers, we are prepared to deliver the remainder of this article. This portion of the article includes the Linux compatibility, overclocking, and of course, its performance by means of benchmarks.

ASRock 939SLI32-eSATA2 Preview

What we have our hands on today is the first publicly released motherboard that not only boasts support for AMD's future AM2 Socket, but also is also supportive of NVIDIA's Scalable Link Interface with both of the contenders running at their full PCI Express x16 speeds. In addition, it also packs in an IEEE-1394 Firewire controller as well as a Gigabit ethernet controller! You ask who is the manufacturer of the motherboard? None other than ASRock surprisingly makes this product. Has ASRock clearly broken its "budget" motherboards seal when it comes to the new 939SLI32-eSATA2? We have the ASRock 939SLI32-eSATA2 at our Phoronix facilities today as we investigate this ULI M1697 + M1695 solution.

However, just how well will it fair against alternative Glenwood and Lakeport products? Today we have the ECS PF5 Extreme today to look at how well this multi-colored solution performs.

DFI Infinity NF4 Ultra

It has been quite a while since we last featured a DFI, or rather Design For Innovation, motherboard at Phoronix but today we are back again with them as we feature one of their products from the Infinity series -- the DFI NF4 Ultra. As the model name implies, the Chipset used is NVIDIA's nForce4 Ultra and it also features a Vitesse Gigabit interface, four DDR-400 slots, and the usual innovations we have become to appreciate from DFI thanks to their LAN Party series.

PC Partner is a relative new comer to Phoronix but they have over 20 years experience in the industry with ISO9001 certification.
