Sander,

Regarding the following statement:

"As it turns out the nForce is indeed working but isnt performing nearly as weve come to expect from the prospective benchmarks weve been shown by Nvidia."

What is this statement based upon? Anand's review? Other sources? Details please.

From what I've heard nVidia released some benchmarks that were way over everything else. Plus, being nVidia, people expect a lot out of them, myself included.

From the technical reviews on the board, it seems that the nForce is doing everything right. But it's the 266MHz (133MHz DDR) bus of the Athlon that is now limiting performance. This is way I see the P4 as a good use of the potential memory the nForce can supply.

The VIA KT266A & nForce 420/220 are now limited by the CPU bus bandwidth. So we can decide which is the better board, until this bottleneck can be eliminated.

Yes, but the question I have with respect to those benchmarks is are they way over everything else that was out then or what's going to be out now.

Remember, KT266A wasn't even announced when the initial nForce benchmarks were posted. If that's what we're talkign about here, then the one thing nVidia can be accused of is poor execution in that they didn't get the product to market before the competition caught up. Though that's not even entirely true until both are actually here and available.
