Been awfully quiet around here no? Well, that’s mostly due to the fact that we’d rather work than talk about it. We’re still diligently working on that Tiger MP article, and because we’d like to do it thoroughly we’re also looking into issues and problems others have reported. Many people have emailed us about their experiences with the Tiger MP, some good, some bad, but overall it looks like there’s quite some bugs to be fixed still with that motherboard.

Many have also asked why we haven’t done a nForce chipset review yet, well simply because there aren’t that many nForce motherboards available just yet and we’d rather wait for other manufacturers to start shipping their products. Currently only the MSI is widely available and although they usually do a good job with their motherboards we’d rather compare a few than just recommend you go buy the only motherboard that’s available.

Oh, one thing that I’d like to mention though. The Tiger MP system seems to be a lot more stable overall when running Windows XP Pro. We’ve been playing with Microsoft’s latest to see whether it is a worthwhile upgrade from Windows 2000 Pro. As of yet we must say that ATi’s drivers for XP seem to be more stable than their Windows 2000 drivers. With the new 3286 drivers we’re able to finish a 3Dmark2001 benchmark without any problems, something that we weren’t able to do with the Windows 2000 drivers.
