Recently at TweakTown we wrote about nVidia's nForce 500 series chipsets explaining the new features that the latest nVidia offering has for the AMD Socket AM2 platform. This included boards form MSI and the current DFI NF590 SLI motherboard which we are reviewing today in more detail since we think it deserves some more action.
Despite recent rumours floating around the Internet on some other websites, DFI will not be quitting the retail motherboard market. In fact, our friends at the Taiwanese company tell us that if anything things will be moving ahead and they wish to ramp up production, not cease to exist in the market. This should come as good news to consumers as DFI's past tells us they make good overclocking motherboard and more product choice is always better for consumers as it creates competition which helps reduces prices and force companies to make even better products than they already do.
While we did use the DFI LANParty UT NF590 SLI-M2R/G motherboard in our last article discussing the NF5 chipset, some might be asking, why we are doing another review? The answer is simple - we only used the DFI board for its 590SLI chipset. The focus of that article was the chipset and not so much the motherboard itself - this time we'll be focusing more on the board and its features to work out if it is actually worth buying.
