Well here it is, I saw this posted on another link but I thought it deserved its own. It is not the Republic of Gamers Board that AMD gets, :( but it is an NForce5 590 SLI with all the bells and whistles. Here is a pic of the new ASUS P5N32-SLI Premium/WiFi-AP:


You can read about all the Specs here:


Here are some of the O/C Options:
Intelligent overclocking tools:
* AI NOS™ (Non-delay Overclocking System)
* AI Overclocking (intelligent CPU frequency tuner)
* ASUS PEG Link - automatically performance tuning for graphics cards
* ASUS AI Booster Utility
Precision Tweaker:
* vCore: Adjustable CPU voltage at 6.25mv increment
* vDIMM: 16-step DRAM voltage control
* vChipset: 8-step Chipset voltage control
SFS (Stepless Frequency Selection)
* FSB tuning from 133MHz up to 600MHz at 1MHz increment
* Memory tuning from 533MHz up to 1600MHz
* PCI Express frequency tuning from 100MHz up to 200MHz at 1MHz increment
Overclocking Protection:
* ASUS C.P.R.(CPU Parameter Recall)

I JUST HOPE THIS IS NOT A RUSH JOB! As I must say the specs look pretty damn good. Now if We can only get it to Newegg or Zipzoomfly, I be happy.:D I still want to see the DFI Board. (nana2)

Asus has been known for rush jobs IMO.

08-19-06, 12:49 AM
Yes they have. They are usually first out the gate, but often have issues. Check out their Nforce4 board that supposly runs Quad SLI and Conroe. Issues galore.

I hope there is no rush job with these ,how could there be ,weren't these boards supposed to be ready at the beginning of the month ? I'll just be glad to see any nforce 590 hit retail.

08-19-06, 07:19 AM
I want it now :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

When are the 590s going to be released?

08-19-06, 02:06 PM
Nobody knows :( Hopefully the Asus will show up next week.

08-19-06, 05:58 PM
3x pci express 16x slots?

2x at 16 and 1x at 8?

very interesting.

i just hope it overclocks as well as the intel boards are.

useful for those of us with dual displays AND Sli.

dont have to keep disabling sli to use the second monitor.

08-19-06, 07:12 PM
Maybe it will be useful for an nvidia based PPU (cheaper gpu to do physics) ??

08-20-06, 03:20 AM
Thats what i think it's for also. Company of Heros apparently supports Havok so it must be getting closer and closer.

08-20-06, 06:24 AM
Well i'm not a expert. Looking at this layout they adjusted there harddisk connections sata/other and for the floppy lovers THEY DINT FOLLOW THE 570 motherboard. http://zeus.asus.com/hq/products4.aspx?modelmenu=2&model=1311&l1=3&l2=11&l3=331
you can download the manual of the P5NSLI and find some very freaky design iissues.

I feared for the 590 but seams they did a bit better.The decission of 3 PCI-E is weird but, its one of the first boards i see that actually can be used in the futher hardcore physics. Namely 3 times geforce pci express+music or 2 times geforce and music + physics. But as downside using all will prob give problems with space if the cardmakers keep thinking they have as much space as they want.

For the average person (1gfx)this looks a very nice board that can be upgraded for physics.Either PCI or PCI-E.If amd and intel dont decide to integrate physics.

PS can somone check if that i'm not looking wrong at THE DAMM FLOPPY CONNECTOR ON THE 570 P5NSLI or mistaking it with something else. pretty plz :)

You would think the 570 would be bridge less like the AMD version.

08-22-06, 06:04 PM
Any word on the Intel 590 chipset mobos? Are they out yet? If not, when are they coming out?

08-22-06, 07:11 PM
personally, i wouldnt waste my time with asus. unless its the crosshair board of course :bleh:

I was looking forward to the P5N32-SLI PREMIUM P5N32-SLI PREMIUM (I presently have an ASUS P5N32-SLI SE DELUXE). But after reading this article, I have decided to wait it out with my SE DELUXE instead.


Users need to realize that the nForce 590 SLI Intel Edition will still use the C19 SPP that is on this board (P5N32-SLI SE DELUXE). Although the chipset is now at a revision C1 and has undergone several months of fine tuning, do not expect the performance or overclocking results to be improved greatly with the nForce 590 SLI boards. In our internal testing we have noticed some minor but measurable improvements, but nothing revolutionary.

I've Used 10 Asus motherbaords since my first build Asus CULS2, and never had an issue luck maybe.
I realise you guys dig DFI there great tweaker boards but saying that Asus has issue is not all that accurate on top of that they have some of the best feature sets of all modern boards sometime to many like WIFI.

I will be using the P5N32-SLI Premium for my first Duo Core build, and feel confident with my choice.

08-30-06, 09:02 AM
Hopefully ASUS doesn't use the C19 Chip... otherwise I'm screwed!
I want SLI and a high FSB, I need Intel SLI support!It uses the C19 says Kingpin http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showpost.php?p=1688832&postcount=109 this is very disappointing:fu:

08-30-06, 09:50 AM
Yes saw that too... so strange. Maybe the new Chip will follow with new revisions of the boards.

Right now, I'm looking at a 975X solution with the SLI drivers, I really want a high fsb... otherwise the E6600 is useless.To late for me, I already ordered the Asus board, I might have to cancel if the 590 sux this bad :(

Your link talks about the ASUS P5NSLI which is using Crush19 which is also the NF5 570 it is not talkinging about the new ASUS P5N32-SLI PREMIUM, which is supposed to be the NF5 590 SLI IE Board.

Same thread http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showpost.php?p=1687925&postcount=106 I think Kingpin is talking about the PREMIUM, also... he has the DFI http://www.overclockingpin.com/dfi590sli%20skull%20mark.jpg why would the Asus have the C55 and not the DFI ??

08-31-06, 12:44 AM
Well for one, DFI had the NF4 IE Dual x16 Chipsets last year but they never released it. Look at this Pic from Computex/2005:
Maybe they had a bunch of Crush19 Core Logic Chips that they needed to get rid of.
On the other hand, ASUS was the first to deliver the NF4 IE Dual x16 Mobo to the public last year, I got the first one from Newegg on Launch Day, and then they had BIOS upgrades for DUAL CORE CPU's, then for Presler/EE CPU's, and then they had to make a Board Modification to use Conroe with the NF4 x16 P5N32-SLI Deluxe SE motherboard that is selling right now. If the ASUS Board does not actually have the C51 or C55 Chipsets, then I am going to go ahead and get the DFI Board untill the REAL NFORCE5 590 IE comes out.

Compare the above board DFI LP NF4 x16(NEVER RELEASED)from 2005 to this years LP UT NF590-SLT T2R/G below:


08-31-06, 01:00 AM
Well we will soon find out, Im getting the Asus as it looks like it will be the first to be released. Good luck with your DFI :D

08-31-06, 10:11 PM
Well the ASUS Board is being Advertised as having EPP which is not available on Nforce4. Plus the DFI board at "extreme" is not being talked about as having EPP either. So that makes me wonder if it is actually the real deal. I'll see what newegg has on Monday Morning.
