Hexus has kicked out a review of NVIDIA's much-anticipated nForce3 250 chipset for AMD64 processors. Although the nForce3 250 doesn't bring back SoundStorm, the chipset has native support for Gigabit Ethernet, Serial ATA, and even a hardware firewall. NVIDIA has also beefed up the chipset's HyperTransport link to 16 bits and 800MHz in each direction.
Though Hexus' testing was done with a qualification sample, their benchmark results show the nForce3 250 as either a little slower or a little faster than VIA's K8T800 chipset, depending on the application.
