  • Conclusion: Well what to say to end this review? Standard speeds are a bit to slow I think as the numbers show but then when it comes to overclocking this board really performs well. I’m sorry I don’t have any SLI results for you but I was not able to get ahold of 2 similiar cards or a SLI kit from Gigabyte or anywhere else. I am amazed over the overclocking results that we were able to get though and it really boost this board.

  • Conclusion: As far as pushing the CPU frequency went, 260MHz seemed to be the highest stable clock achievable, which was not bad at all, although a little way off what has been seen on some nForce3 boards. At this frequency however we were somewhat limited by the abilities of our CPU, and so for our highest overall overclock, we went with a CPU frequency of 250MHz.

Digital-Daily
15 April 2005
  • Summary: Gigabyte K8NXP-SLI is a direct competitor to Asus A8N-SLI. Even a detailed comparison of these two boards is unlikely to reveal the leader (even at specific area of tests). Anyway, at the package bundle Gigabyte's board that comes with a WiFi modules is a better performer. The Asus' product offers a bracket for plugging in external SerialATA devices. At expansion options, there is absolute parity.
  • Pros: Excellent stability and performance;, Support for the SLI (two PCI Express x8\x16 slots);, Support for SerialATA (4 channels of SATA II; 4 SATA I; RAID);, Integrated 8-channel audio and two Gigabit LAN controllers;, Support for the USB2.0 (10 ports) and IEEE-1394b (3 ports);, A pack of Gigabyte proprietary technologies: (DualBIOS, Smart FAN, @BIOS, FaceWizard);, Rich package bundle (including a WiFi module).
