Abit NF7-S nForce2 Review

| Posted: Nov 30, 2002 9:04 pm

Hexus has posted a review of Abit's nForce2 based motherboard. The NF7-S arrives packed with RAID Serial-ATA support, dual-channel DDR400, 6-channel "SoundStorm" sound, up to 6 USB 2.0 ports and 3 FireWire ports.

 

Performance, as our benchmarks have borne out, is exemplary when running the NF7-S in dual-channel, synchronous mode. The latencies that become apparent when we run asynchronous single or dual-channel RAM have a negative impact on performance. With dual-channel DDR266 offering a potential 4.2GB/s of bandwidth for 133FSB XPs, and dual-channel DDR333 offering 5.4GB/s for the top-end 166FSB CPUs, the needs of the processor are met and exceeded. The spare bandwidth on tap allows the nForce2, and by inference the ABIT NF7-S, to set AMD-based benchmark records. It seems especially suited to a 166FSB CPU and dual-channel DDR333. Our hypothetical XP2400D (2GHz/166FSB/dual-channel DDR333) simply outclassed the other benchmarks.
