nVidia nForce 680i LT SLI Chipset Preview - Boosting Mainstream

Final Thoughts


We hope you have found our preliminary delve into nVidia's new nForce 680i LT SLI chipset informative.


You should start to see these chips hitting boards in the more affordable price range very soon - in fact, eVGA for one are already selling their 680i LT motherboard for around $200 USD but Newegg has a decent Mail-In Rebate bringing the price down to around a much more respectable $175 USD.


It definitely seems like a very solid design and move by nVidia as many users often complained about the price of some high-end 680i SLI motherboards being too expensive and sometimes rightfully so with some costing around $550 AUD (almost $450 USD!) in Australia. While the "Designed by nVidia" concept seems to be good using high quality parts we still hope to see other companies such as MSI, Gigabyte, ABIT, ASUS and so on come out with their own cut down 680i SLI designed motherboards.


Unfortunately we didn't quite get a testing review sample at the time of writing to give a comparison in performance and overclocking compared to the 680i SLI chipset, however we do have some companies already sending us schedules for their boards, so expect to see some reviews very shortly.


Until then, keep tweaking those systems!
