Asus P5N32-E SLI Plus Hybrid Chipset Motherboard Review
6 March 2007
Excerpt: Asus has been one of the main innovators in motherboard technology over the past several years. The Asus Crosshair and Striker motherboards were the first to offer anything really new to the motherboard segment in quite some time. In the chipset world, NVIDIA has been the king of features and performance for some time as well, offering new solutions for both AMD and Intel platforms that go beyond pretty much anything else you can find.
Conclusion: - Conclusion The P5N32-E SLI Plus is the first ever motherboard to combine two different nVidia chipsets into a hybrid system. Asus has used the nVidia 650i SLI and nVidia 570i SLI chipsets in order to produce the P5N32-E SLI Plus. As we all know, the nVidia 650i SLI has two 8x lanes (under SLI mode). Asus paired both lanes to build the first x16 PCI-E slot, while the nVidia 570i SLI "drives" the other two available PCI-E slots (x16 & x8 for physics card).
