Although raw CPU frequencies are not really treated as true benchmarks today, they remain an important performance metric for most overclockers. 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. Feb 3, at 8: In only half a year, nVIDIA have dethroned the previous champion chipsets from VIA and have created quite a reputation for themselves in the stable high performance chipset arena. What was the best tech product of ? Stacked with technology and useful features, ABIT have their interpretation up and raring to go. If one 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.

Yes, my password is: Just find the installer routine exe file and right click on it. Please log in or register to comment. We could run any test and the NF7-S passed all of them even running Prime 95 overnight.
To be honest, you’re not missing much. Do you already have an account? Apr 23, at 1: Socket A motherboards supported a broad number of chipset designs that included the VIA KT and Nvidia nForce Ultra series, both popular choices with motherboard manufacturers.
ABIT NF7-M nForce2 IGP Motherboard Review –
The only way to get things back again was to reinstall Vista which is not a big job. As far as I can tell, there are still no non-beta Vista drivers for the i chipset. Their signature twinbank memory controllers are back, seemingly feed on silicon steroids in the interim months.
Although raw CPU frequencies are not really treated as true benchmarks today, they remain an important performance metric for most overclockers. You can find mforce submission from I. Whilst it matched the incumbent VIA solution on a performance basis, and beat it in the technological and feature stakes, it’s relatively high price ensured that VIA could just hold on to their Socket A mantle as 1 chipset maker.
When I tried to install Vista I managed to remove all of the!
I clicked to install and Bingo the! Apr 23, abjt 9: In the Socket A era, we find the enthusiast segment to nfodce quite different with Abit proving to be the motherboard manufacturer of choice with overclockers on HWBOT.
Feb 3, at 8: Not to be detered, I popped in a floppy containing the Silicon Image 1. The combination of these two improvements to nVidia’s DASP results in very competitive performance and in some cases, a significant performance boost when using Dual DDR.
Review: ABIT NF7-S nForce2 – Mainboard –
The lack of ability to install the Gart driver for the Abit NF7-S motherboard results in a system that will not play games. Bitte einloggen oder register to comment. You can get rid of the SM Bus controller! Finally we come to the classic SuperPi 32M benchmark, n7f important benchmark in terms of historical relevance.
Holy thread resurrection Batman! Apr 22, Posts: It looks formidable on paper.
Motherboard Memory Lane: AMD Socket A, Abit NF7-S V2.0 and AMD Athlon 2500+
I believe they are only supporting drivers for nForce3 and above. With five bit PCI slots you won’t have any problems adding in future expansion cards if desired either.
We have not tested any other boards for the AMD platform that nfrce able to do this until now. Check out the submission from I.
The nForce2 DASP now has better prefetching intelligence allowing it to correctly predict data that will be used next more correctly thus increasing efficiency.
Beginners Guides Cases and Access. This is what ExtremeOvercloking. The Ntorce Athlon XP series arrived in and was an immediate hit with enthusiasts, offering superior performance than Intel equivalents, coupled with reasonably competitive prices. I tried a Beta driver and the same prob.
