ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard - Full Speed SLI *Exclusive* - The Package

When nVidia first launched their dual graphics platform, it initially come under some scrutiny for only offering two 8x PCI-E ports. Many months later nVidia announced their nForce 4 SLI X16 chipset which offers two full speed PCI-E slots, each with 16 lanes. Today we've got a very exclusive look at the ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard. We closely examine the performance of the two different PCI Express port lane configurations to determine if it's actually worth upgrading to the new chipset or not!

The Package

 

Under the usual "Deluxe" naming scheme as you would expect we have got a huge bundle of cables and other goodies to play with. In true ASUS fashion we have a simply yet elegant looking box that opens up and gives us a huge list of features that are supported on the motherboard.

 

Included in the package we have 5 x SATA cables, 3 x SATA power cables, 2 x black IDE cables and 1 x black floppy cable.

 

 

 

Extra connectors we find 2 x USB ports, game port, 1 x mini Firewire, 1 x normal Firewire and a serial port connector.

 

 

We also have a few extra jumpers included in the package if you happened to lose yours and our normal back plate.

 

 

Finally we have the manual, driver CD and a copy of the WinDVD suite which comes with Photoalbum, WinDVD Creator 2, DVD Copy 2.5 and Disc Master 2.5.
