Although cut off the production line before they were ready to be shipped in volume, early samples of DFI's highly anticipated "LAN Party NF590 SLI Intel Edition" motherboard were discovered to be a hell of a performer (even with an immature BIOS).

The reason DFI pulled it was apparently because they werent happy with NVIDIA's C19-based chipset and will instead launch a new board based on the revised "NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI Intel Edition C55" chipset.

Details at Nordic, VR-Zone and bit-tech folks.

DFI LAN Party NF590 SLI Intel Edition looked like a very promising motherboard for overclockers working with Intel's Core 2 Duo architecture but after that the first samples appeared DFI decided to cancel the development of the board. The reason was that it wasn't happy with NVIDIA's Intel-version of nForce 590 code-named C19. It has since then announced that it will instead focus on the new version of the chipset, NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI Intel Edition C55. At VR-Zone they've had a C19-based LAN Party board in the test lab and except from a immature BIOS they were very pleased with the board.
