Read on and we shall see In the nForce2, a second generation DASP system has been implemented to combat the problems with the first generation. There shouldn’t be a single user out there that isn’t satisfied with these aggressive timings. The Port80 diagnostics card on the lower right hand corner is an invaluable tool for anyone who likes to tinker with their system. Memory stress testing was conducted by running RAM at MHz and MHz with as many modules populated as possible at the most aggressive timings possible.

Here were the timings we were able to achieve:.
Latest News Latest Videos. If you can’t fit everything you want into this motherboard, you won’t be able ngorce with any other board on the market. The area around the socket is clear of any large capacitors and the only concern here would be the potential of the northbridge cooler blocking the CPU heatsink.
There are only 3 stereo ports on the back which means support for 5. The optical support I particularly like because it gives you the best rpox for connecting your digital audio receiver since there is also coax output. If you nfroce more detailed support your only official option would be to fill out their online support form.
Memory stress testing was conducted by running RAM at MHz and MHz with as many modules populated as possible at the most aggressive timings possible. The improvement in prefetch intelligence comes partially from an improvement in the prefetching algorithm that detects when to prefetch data streams.
Ships with the following: While we weren’t able to hit MHz, we did get to MHz. This is backed up by our own test results, which show that SoundStorm is able to smoothly play five of some of the most 8rdw games out there.
nForce 2 Socket A Motherboard Round-up
I suspect the EPoX has made a mistake on their website by stating support for 8 USB devices since there are only 4 USB ports on the rear and one extra connector on the motherboard for a total nofrce 6 devices.
High-End Workstation Performance continued Running Prime95 nforve a great way to really stress your system, as we have very rarely encountered an issue with a system that was able to pass 24 hours or more of Prime95 torture tests. With the exception of the Magic Flash and Magic Screen utilities, the rest of the utility software is very useful. On epos, the nForce was the ultimate in chipset technology, on the actual front line; the nForce had some major flaws which we will re-cap on now.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.
EPoX EP-8RDA – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – nForce2 SPP Overview – CNET
Read on and find out. A quarter century tour; a Space Marine’s job is never done.
These are great timings in fact the A7N8X was able to achieve the exact timings in this exact same scenario. The combination of these two improvements to nVidia’s DASP results in very competitive performance and in eopx cases, a significant performance boost when using Dual DDR.
8-Way nVidia nForce 2 Motherboard Roundup
There are 4 USB 2. Here were our results:. Wpox, the location of these headers aren’t optimal. Therefore, we conducted 24 hours of Prime95 torture tests, ran various Super Pi stress tests, and reran various benchmarks like SPECviewperf 7. If you think you’re have a hardware problem, just look at the Port80 card and it’ll tell you whether something is broken with a quick reference to the manual.
But to EPoX’s relief, most videocards are shorter in length these days. The Port80 diagnostics card on the lower right hand corner is an invaluable tool for anyone who likes to tinker with their system.
Not only was the performance of the nForce well below expectations but it took nearly half a year from launch date till the chipset would be widely available. The fan on the northbridge is epoxx welcome addition for those looking to overclock their system especially if you’re planning on increasing the chipset voltage.
In my Antec case 21″ tallthe 18″ IDE cable did not have enough slack to reach. It’s been running flawless for 12 years. It contains a single language for clarity English in this case and includes everything from installation, to the BIOS, to bundled software documentation.
