BFG preps nForce 590 SLI motherboard


— 1:43 PM on August 21, 2006

The folks at BFG tech last dipped their toes into the waters of the motherboard market with a lone Socket 939-based nForce4 Ultra board, and they're now preparing to revisit the motherboard arena with an nForce 590 SLI-based offering for Socket AM2 processors. The maker of graphics physics cards plans to release the motherboard this October. A page listing the upcoming board's features is already up on BFG's site.

Going by the picture, BFG's new baby will apparently be quite similar to Foxconn's own nForce 590 SLI-based C51XEM2AA-8EKRS2H. Both boards sport a pair of PCI Express x16 slots, PCI Express x1 and x4 slots, and a couple of 32-bit PCI slots. They also both have six Serial ATA ports with RAID support, dual Gigabit Ethernet, and 400Mbps and 800Mbps FireWire ports. Nvidia said Foxconn implemented the nForce 590 SLI reference design in its board, and BFG Tech now appears to have done the same. We've already reviewed the Foxconn version, which is now available for between $192 and $210.
