It seems as of late the nForce 790i is finally making its rounds through our labs, most likely because of the GTX 280 performing as well as it does, especially in SLI and Tri SLI configurations.
NVIDIA is the only company to support SLI; there is no licence for SLI on Intel chipsets, which honestly is a real shame as Intel has already got Crossfire working fine - why not SLI? The easy guess is that NVIDIA wants to hold the market to ransom over SLI support.
So far we have had the ZOTAC board cross us; now it's time for MSI, one of the biggest motherboard makers in Taiwan, and one of the biggest presences here in Australia to have its time in the sun.
Today we have been given the P7N2 Diamond motherboard. This baby is aimed at being the top gun of all 790i SLI boards out there. While that's a good aim, does it perform? - Let's see.
