Now, more than a month and a half after its last aborted launch, the nForce 590 SLI for Intel processors is finally ready for prime time. The chipset has arrived in style, too, riding an Asus P5N32-SLI Premium motherboard that's bursting at the seams with all the perks and extras you'd expect from a high-end mobo. What's more, the P5N32-SLI Premium is already available on store shelves.
Pinch me. The 590 SLI is for real this time.
Of course, the real question isn't whether you can finally pair a Core 2 Duo processor with an nForce 590 SLI chipset; it's whether you'd want to do so. To find out, we subjected the P5N32-SLI Premium to a sweeping array of chipset and motherboard tests, with enlightening results.
