ASRock AM2NF4G-SATA2

Back on May 23, we had delivered our launch-day preview of the AMD Socket AM2, and with that, we had also taken a quick look at ASRock's AM2NF4G-SATA2 motherboard. Now that we have had the time to complete our testing of this nForce 410 motherboard, we have the remainder of our results available today.

ASRock AM2NF4G-SATA2 Preview

With the AM2 launch this morning, AMD's partners have been quick to jump on this bandwagon with a whole arsenal of new motherboards. Of the products to be shown at this year's Computex Taipei event is the ASRock AM2NF4G-SATA2. Not only does price differentiate this motherboard from the newly established Socket AM2 competition, but also the ASRock AM2NF4G-SATA2 relies upon the already existing GeForce 6100 and nForce 410.

ECS C19-A SLI

The ECS C19-A SLI is an all-around great SLI motherboard for Intel users. The board formally supports Scalable Link Interface using the NVIDIA C19XE + MCP51 Chipset. Other features for this budget solution include Gigabit LAN, and Realtek 8-channel audio. The overclocking abilities are also surprising.

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.

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.

ECS PF5 Extreme

ECS Elitegroup has been in the motherboard business since 1987, and their design quality certainly shows with their PF5 Extreme.

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.

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.
