- nForce4 Ultra Roundup: Charting the Mainstream
Looking to upgrade your rig with the latest and greatest in hardware? If you're going AMD, there's no denying the best way to start would be to base it all off an nForce4 motherboard. If an SLI video card arrangement isnt your thing however, then the Ultra chipset would be the sweet spot. To help you make the decision towards which NF4 Ultra board out there tickles your fancy the most, Anandtech have just compiled a roundup article comparing seven of them.
Several months ago, we took our first look at nForce4 production boards in nForce4 SLI Roundup: Painful and Rewarding. That look was very early in the nForce4 cycle, and we had our own share of problems getting all the features to work on those early nF4 boards. We persevered and did complete the roundup, finding a couple of boards that stood out from the crowd as Editor's Choices. This time around, we are looking at boards based on the single GPU nForce4 Ultra chipset. Keep in mind that nForce4 Ultra and nForce4 SLI are the exact same chipset, with the only difference being that the SLI function is enabled on the SLI version. There are no performance differences in the SLI and Ultra chipsets, or even the base nForce4 for that matter. These chipsets differ only in which features are available to the buyer - but they beat with the same heart.
