ForceWare Rundown





When it came to testing the latest ForceWare drivers a few features stood out. NV RAID gives you the ability to easily setup your RAID array within Windows. While this isn't exactly something new thanks to ease of this software we were able to setup our Seagate PATA drives within minutes.


- Network Access Manager (nVidia MAC)



The Network Access Manager turns your network port into a Firewall and Router all through the nForce3 250 MCP. The advantage behind this is that increases in online security can be had. While the interface may give you the feeling that this firewall is hardware based it is all driven by software.



As you can see everything within the ForceWare driver is driven by wizards meaning setup of this software is quite easy.


- NV System Utility



The NV System Utility gives you the ability to adjust all overclocking settings within Windows instead of the aging BIOS like usual. While this software has been around for quite a while now nVidia have purposely written software so you can get the absolute most out of Windows overclocking which we think is great.
