NVIDIA's nForce2 Ultra 400Gb chipset
A new MCP arrives
hasn't released a new Athlon XP processor for almost a year, motherboard and chipset makers are still cranking out Socket A hardware. Why? Because even as the price of Athlon 64 processors fall, a $65 Athlon XP 2500+ is hard to beat. Of course, if manufacturers were churning out the same Socket A hardware as a year ago, the platform would have significantly less appeal. Thankfully, chipset and mobo makers have kept their products up to date, adding new features and functionality to keep Socket A as close to the cutting edge as an Athlon XP can be.
The latest chipset to bring cutting edge features to the venerable Socket A platform is NVIDIA's nForce2 Ultra 400Gb, which comes loaded with Serial ATA, RAID, Gigabit Ethernet, and a firewall. Read on to see what NVIDIA's new nForce2 Ultra 400Gb chipset is all about and how it compares with the competition.
