What is the advantages of using the nForce590 chipset VS. nForce4 Chipset?

I'd like your feedback on this topic.

For AMD or Intel?

You get things like Linkboost, SLI memory support, first packet, and AM2 socket for AMD.

Hello jAkUp, this would be for Intel. :D And support for the G80/DirectX 10 and also Windows Vista.

For Intel, its the things mentioned above, and Conroe support.

What advantages will the new soon to be released NVIDIA 680i SLI chipset
have over the NVIDIA 590 SLI chipset?

According to my knowledge,Nforce 680i SLI is basically a revised nForce 590 SLI Intel Edition chipset but with new chipset C55 instead of the old one C19 (C55 is a C19 with better memory controller and without the so-calling "FSB scaling issues")
Someone correct me if i am wrong :)

For AMD the NForce5 is suppose to support AM2 and AM3 when its out.

I havn't jumped on the core2 bandwagon just yet as i have always wanted A: SLI and B: decent prices. At the moment the ASUS P5N is insainly expensive 187 for a board man!!
as for the NF5 Vs NF4 better overclocking really and that about it.

Thats Right, BETTER FSB and Memory Controller. Plus the 680i is also incorperating two PCIE Slots for Dual x16 SLI and then a third PCIE Slot for Physics.:captnkill: Also Conroe and Quad-Core Kentsfield Ready!

Okay, what about the nForce 590 vs. nForce 570? Which of the two is better?
Being that nForce 590 is a greater number then nForce 570. Any comments?

OKAY, the NF570IE is a conroe ready board like its big brother except it will ony have two pcie grapics slots running a x8 for SLI. It will not have Duel Net GB LAN like the NF590IE. Both boards are only using the C19IE NB with an upgraded Memory Controller but maybe a maximum of 330-350MHz FSB.

The New NForce6 Series will have three versions: IE the 680i, :captnkill: which has the newest Memory Controller for Conroe Dual-Core Extreme and the Kentsfield Quad-Core, And is supposed to reach a nice 500+MHz FSB. (nana2) It also has two PCIe x16 Slots for SLI and a PCIe x8 Slot for a PCIE Physics/graphics Card. This board will also have all the Features that the NF590IE has, DualNet, First-Packet, NTune, EPP-Enhanced Performance Profiles, Read here: http://www.nvidia.com/docs/IO/35382/nforce_500_intel_chart.pdf

Next you will see the 670i, Same Memory controller as the 680i, which will have a single Gb LAN and Dual x8 SLI and support for Conroe and Kentsfield.

And then you will see the 650i, which is basicly a Conroe ready Low Cost Board which will only have a single PCI-Express x16 Slot for graphics. Both the 670i & 650i will incorperate some of the features as the 680i, but not all.

We should find out more this week as NVidia Editors DAY is Oct. 18th. I am sure MikeC will have someone there, if He can not be there himself. :D

i forgot the 3rd PCIE! it should be an interesting mobo (nana2)

sabersix1, WoW! :captnkill: Thanks for defining the meaning of the nForce family lineup. You rock! (nana2)
