It's certainly been a while since something new has come out for the AMD Athlon 64 and Phenom processors which was built by someone other than AMD's own chipset division; that's a definite plus for AMD since others are willing to take advantage of the Phenom processor, indicating that AMD are still somewhat on the right track.
Today's testing has been more of a preview of the GeForce 8200 chipset rather than a review, as drivers still have to officially hit the market along with overclocking results. We have reserved our final opinion for a later date due to this.
On the plus side, the early performance of the chipset is extremely promising, and with driver tweaks and the possibility of being able to overclock it's likely that NVIDIA has a strong contender on its hands, especially for the Vista environment which requires more power than what currently seems feasible.
To Palit, we thank you for the early sample. Without a doubt this board has some promise for the future. Stay tuned for more info on the MPC78.
