  • Summary: The board also ran slower than the lesser nForce boards in our Valve Particle test. As we’ve noted, this test seems more sensitive to latency, which we didn’t expect to be a problem since the RAM was manually set for both of the boards. As with the MSI P35 board, a BIOS update may be needed, but overall, performance was quite good.
  • Pros: Craploads of SATA ports; pretty speedy.
  • Cons: Realtek audio still doesn't work with EAX.

Gigabyte's N680SLI-DQ6 motherboard

7 May 2007
  • Summary: The N680SLI-DQ6 doesn't appear to be selling online at the moment, but Gigabyte says the board should be available soon with a suggested retail price of $309. That's hardly chump change, but it's not entirely unreasonable considering that Asus' flagship Striker Extreme sells for . And the Striker doesn't have nearly the same array of Serial ATA and Gigabit Ethernet options as the DQ6.

  • Excerpt: It's no secret that Intel's Core 2 platform is the hottest thing since the Beatles, and companies are lining up to make chipsets for this king of the desktop processors. SiS has already got chips available, Intel has as always had its own platform chips and even AMD/ATI has its Crossfire 3200 Intel Edition. Although, in our opinion the best player in the performance and enthusiast chipset realm is nVidia.

Gigabyte N680SLI-DQ6 6-Quad review

31 March 2007
  • Conclusion: Compared to other motherboards we tested, this one is actually faster, even when compared to the 680i SLI LT. Especially in real-life situations like games, to a point where results get a bit confusing, confusing being a positive thing. Now we can only wonder if there are a couple of more horse powers left in the BIOS, drivers and the package alltogether, because we feel like there is.

Exclusive: Gigabyte GA-N680SLI-DQ6 (NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI)

  • Conclusion: Competition has always been fierce in the PC component market and with core logic designs getting more and more advanced, it has become a battleground of outdoing the competition in terms of features. Gigabyte can be credited for bringing full solid capacitor designs into the mainstream, but their advantage only lasted a few months as every other major manufacturer is now switching to similar designs.
