The LANParty nForce3 Ultra is a Socket 939 board based on NVIDIA's latest chipset.
Both boards pack a wallop with a bunch of high-end features, including four SATA ports, SATA RAID, dual Firewire ports, and 8-channel audio. Also, DFI has designed a unique audio riser card that houses the Realtek codec for the LANParty 8-channel audio setup. DFI says this riser arrangement should help to isolate the codec, providing a lower noise enviroment.
Both of these boards are six-layer designs, to ensure rock-solid stability. Six-layer PCBs cost more to produce (about $25 per board) but DFI expects to save money on support costs with higher-quality boards. Expect to see the new LANParty mobos arriving soon with an even more extensive bundle of goodies than past models for around $199.
