MSI K9N SLI Platinum nForce 570 SLI Motherboard

HotHardware
4 December 2006
  • Conclusion: Our Conclusion It's not the newest solution on the market, so the MSI K9N SLI Platinum probably shouldn't be looked at as a hardcore gaming solution any longer. As of today, many high-end gamers are gravitating towards Core 2 Duo based SLI configurations, and likely won't give an nForce 570 SLI based Athlon 64 platform a second look. It's true, for a high-end gamer there may be better solutions out there.
  • Pros: Excellent Price / Performance Ratio, Zero Noise Chipset Cooling, High-End Ethernet / RAID Configuration
  • Cons: Passive Cooler Can Get Very Hot, Lacks Any Exciting New Features

  • Summary: If the results of our performance tests make one thing clear, it's that the nForce 570 SLI chipset has no problem keeping up with its more expensive sibling. The loss of true dual 16-lane SLI doesn't have an impact on the performance of a pair of GeForce 7900 GTX graphics cards, and LinkBoost isn't missed. In fact, there are a few instances where the K9N SLI Platinum is actually a little faster than nForce 590 SLI boards from Asus and Foxconn.

  • Summary: The MSI K9N-SLI Platinum proves to be a very capable motherboard. It manages to use the nForce 570 SLI chipset to great advantage. It's one of the fastest nForce 570 SLI based motherboard we've tested, and offers great features from MSI. Performance is very good at default settings and I was quite surprised to see the K9N-SLI Platinum outperform other motherboards on certain benchmarks.

MSI K9N SLI Platinum - nForce 570 SLI

  • Conclusion: The MSI K9N SLI Platinum took our usual barrage of tests without any trouble, so it shouldn't prove too much trouble for anyone familiar with PC installations to get this board up and running. There are still a few software issues, however, such as NTune not fully functioning, and the latest 90-series ForceWare drivers causing issues in SLI, but time is a great healer of such issues, providing NVIDIA and MSI play the game.

Au-Ja!
9 January 2007
  • Conclusion: Fazit Das MSI K9N SLI Platinum ist zwar nicht besonders spannend, aber eine solide Wahl zu einem ausgesprochen fairen Preis. Für 111 € bekommt man zwei Gigabit-LAN Schnittstellen, sechs Serial-ATA 3 Gb/s Ports, drei Firewire-Anschlüsse und ordentlichen High-Definition Klang mit 8+2 Kanälen. Im SLI-Betrieb verfügen die Grafikkarten zwar nur über jeweils acht PCI-Express Lanes, doch in der Praxis wirkt sich das kaum aus.

  • Summary: La MSI K9N SLI Platinum es una muy buena placa madre. Nos entrega básicamente todas las capacidades de expansión que pudiéramos necesitar. Por otro lado su rendimiento es muy bueno, estando a la par con una placa madre bastante menos económica y con una lógica superior como la Asus M2N32 SLI. En cuanto al producto completo, caja, placa madre, accesorios, calidad de fabricación, no tenemos nada que decir excepto pequeños detalles que ya fueron mencionados.
  • Pros: Trae puerto Firewire, Disipacion completamente silenciosa
  • Cons: La posición del conector auxiliar 12v, A - B = -2 donde A son los cables SATA incluidos y B son los puertos SATA
