From what I hear Nvidia may (read: should) support SLI on 975X.

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2006/07/31/nvidia_to_support_sli_on_975x/

If not though, I'd be perfectly happy dropping a E6600 into a nForce 590 SLI instead.

I mean in some respects, nothing can beat an Intel chipset paired together with an Intel CPU. But, sometimes, other manufacturers can offer alot in the field of features, performance and other aspects that Intel themselves sometimes can leave behind. In any case, I personally will be going with an nForce 590SLI chipset, not only because of SLI itself, but for a change as well.

Yes.... as of choice... my current standing for an Intel system would to pair it up with either a 975X or NF 590 SLI.

But once again, I do have to ask myself and others -- even though Nvidia will allow Intel to have SLI capabilities built into their chipsets, will they really let them 'have it all'? I think about things like that. Just because a company licenses their technology to you, are they really licensing everything that you need. For example, why is it that Intel chipsets peform considerably better on it's own platform versus their 3rd-party candidate (i.e VIA, SiS etc.). So all in all, what I'm trying to say is that, whether an Intel chipset with SLI would perform on par with an Nvidia chipset, I'm more hard pressed to believe that Nvidia would obviously retain some of their secrets to have their platform be, the platform of choice instead.

But if the licensing works through and Intel is able to do SLi...... then having a Intel 975X chipset would be a good pick in the sense of choice in gpu pick...... meaning that if the 975X can do either crossfire or SLi on the same board....... hey..... that is a good thing. one day you have SLi...... ATI comes out with a better crossfire.... you switch.... Nvidia returns with a better SLi.... you switch.... and it goes back and forth.... same mb.... AND your wallet is on flames from switching between the two... lol..

Lol, no I know what you're saying. But the point I'm trying to raise is that, even though the 975X and other future Intel chipsets will have SLI, will it be an EXACT replica of a nForce 590SLI chipset? What are they chances, right? Like I said, will Nvidia really give them the oportunity to expand their 975X chipset into being a worthwhile competitor to their own, or will they obviously retain some of those hidden secrets which have propelled their SLI platform to what it is today?

and most of all if it does support sli, will it support 2x x16. the i945's and i965 that support sli have only 2x x8 sli. which kind of defeats the purpose. if the 975x ends up with the same bottle neck, hmm

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.

The word is Oct 2006

Any one in the know of earlier release dates?

is the difference between sli 2x8 and sli 2x16 really that great though? I thought videocards had yet to exploit the full pci-ex throughput.

Not sure but I'd be seriously upset if my pair of BFG 7950 cards don't use x 16 PCi express. Plus the nForce 590 chipset has other benefits like 2 x 1Gb lan pairing , HD sound of riser card etc which I can exploit. I seen topics stating the the first mobo might not have nforce 5 on north & south bridge, so I guess we need to ckeck or stick with a SLi nforce 4 mobo for the good it would do to upgrade to nF5.

I'm excited about this board. I've been waiting for something to use with e6700, ddr2 800, and SLI.

I want to use a 7950gx2...but I wouldn't be able to use 2 of these on this board right?

:: P5N32-E sli + Q6600 @ 3ghz
:: 4GBs Corsair XMS2 DDR2 800
:: EVGA 8800GTX
:: 2 WD Raptors 10,000rpm 74gb RAID0
:: Gateway 24" FHD2400 LCD

Emmanuel,

That link doesn't work, could you post it again? What was it about anyway?

>> Re: NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI Intel Edition NVIDIA's Website manu's mobo release timetable
Sorry for the delay in fitting the bad link. It was about NVIDIA's Website manu's mobo release timetable with Conroe support.

Here is the link in full.

http://nvidia.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/nvidia.cfg/php/enduser/std_...X3BhZ2U9MQ**&p_li=&p_topview=1
It was was stortened by one forum so I used the shortened URL in ignorance, Oops.

I've decided to wait myself until I have a choice of 3 x NF5 SLi true North & Southbridge mobo to choose from, 2nd & 3rd gen mobo have the kink ironed out as I found out with the flakey last two diff Abit Fatality AMD mobo I bought 7 mouths apart. I just hope I get 3 x choice by Nov 06 as siiting on a e6800 is getting tiresome.

Looks good. I much like yourself won't be waiting in line the next morning to buy a buggy board that just came out -- often the mistake made by many. Personally, I'll wait until all of the glitches and so on are taken care of in future revisions.
