Performance was good, but it just couldn’t compete with VIA’s chipsets at the time. Please visit HWZ for the latest reviews and news.
Check out the specifications below and go over to the next few pages to see how it compares with the xhipset reviewed Soltek SLFRN2. Little things like this show how dedicated a cihpset is to quality. Now a days, you can get an nForce2 board from any of the large motherboard manufacturers easily. The K7N2-L is smaller then most other AMD motherboards out there, so you shouldn’t have any problems installing this board into a mni tower case.
Will they be the last to support Socket-A?
This is an old archive page of HWZ prior to revamp. That would be difficult to foresee since the Ahtlon XP has an chipseet CPU line-up and the platform itself could easily last through the next year. The nForce was faster and more advanced, however after long delay the nForce eventually reached a market where the main competitor had now changed.
The nForce2 Ultra was validated to operate at FSB and was also marketed to have better overclocking potential. The cooler the better and you can see MSI using thermal paste. Chipsft with the following: The problem seems chipse originate from the BIOS which was not properly optimized for the new chipset. We were happy to see that MSI places a fan header just above the AGP slot, users of third party videocard cooling like the Thermaltake Crystal Orb can surely appreciate this.
We certainly hope that this will be an issue of the past as time goes on and with manufacturers updating their BIOS consistently. Introduction With the Ahtlon 64 looming in the horizon, it looks like the Socket-A platform is on its last lap.
Even so, most chipset vendors are giving their full support to Socket-A and the three major AMD motherboard chipset manufactures have all released their latest incarnations. Beginners Guides Cases and Access. With the nForce2 Ultra this time around, MSI is actively pursuing the feature-hungry enthusiasts and overclockers who would normally hunt for high-end boards with extra overclocking headroom.
Only particular RAM modules synced well with the new chipset and helped us complete our benchmark suite.
