Talking [news] Nvidia Annouces nForce 600i family

Dailytech.com gives us a run down on the new Nvidia nForce 600i family of motherboards.
NVIDIA is set to announce its latest core-logic family for Intel processors. The new nForce 600i family spawns three new products—the nForce 680i SLI, 650i SLI and 650i Ultra. The three chipsets will target hardcore enthusiasts, performance gamers and mainstream gamers respectively. With the nForce 600i chipset family, NVIDIA has adopted a new naming scheme to differentiate its Intel and AMD products. Beginning with the nForce 600i family, NVIDIA chipsets will have “i” designations for Intel chipsets and “a” designations for AMD variants.
EVGA is the first manufacturer to release an nForce 680i SLI based motherboard. Images of the EVGA nForce 680i SLI motherboard was previously released by NVIDIA. The EVGA nForce 680i SLI motherboard features three PCI Express x16 slots with two full-speed and one half-speed. EVGA has based the motherboard on NVIDIA’s reference design. The motherboard supports all features of the nForce 680i SLI including the LinkBoost, FirstPacket, DualNet, MediaShield and high definition audio technologies.

Expect the EVGA nForce 680i SLI and other nForce 680i SLI based motherboards to cost south of the $300 border. Expect NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI and Ultra based motherboards should be more cost effective, most likely below $150.
Looks like EVGA's Australian distributor already has the 680i motherboard listed on their web site http://www.shadowentertainment.com.au/home.php?cat=272

Price gouging at its worst, That price is obscene

I'm glad I have absolutely NO intention of buying another ANUS board if there is another brand available

Re: [news] Nvidia Annouces nForce 600i family

I know I will probably get flamed by the DFI Fanboi's


but

The new ASUS STRIKER ROG is the one

The SLOT layout is just what I have been waiting for.
But I can't find any of them available in Aussie

The slot layout is just the same as the EVGA board and I'll bet very nearly the same as DFI come up with as there is only so much you can do when there are 3xPCI-e x16 slots

What ANUS have done is to just add all that copper CRAP, what a 'kin joke

Re the wallet, you have shown a LOT of restraint over the last few months so you well deserve a big splurge

I reckon the Abit board looks the most functional with the best layout too, not to mention the insane V options
