MSI P6N Diamond - NV680i with X-Fi Audio

HotHardware
21 November 2007
  • Conclusion: Performance Summary: The nForce 680i SLI-based P6N Diamond performed on par with two Intel P965 boards, one from Asus and the other from MSI itself.  While synthetic testing was a bit scattered, with scores falling on all sides of the spectrum, real-world tests especially in regards to gaming frame rates really showed off the P6N Diamond's potential.
  • Pros: Creative Labs X-Fi Audio, Four PEG Slots, Hardware RAID, Great Gaming Performance
  • Cons: Overclocking, Aging nForce 680i chipset, Tight clearance around CPU socket

  • Conclusion: This board is feature full with onboard X-Fi and a host of connectors, its got some great – albeit a little confusing – overclocking options and hits a very nice max FSB of 450mhz. However, it’s price is enormous and it’s really worth thinking “is it worth it?” when you consider buying this motherboard.
  • Pros: Good overclocking ability and options, Onboard X-Fi, Future Quad SLI, loads of SATA ports, great motherboard cooling
  • Cons: Expensive, Clearance Issues

MSI P6N Diamond (NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI)

Hardware Zone
7 August 2007
  • Conclusion: MSI must have known that such a late entry for the P6N Diamond would mean weaker sales, and it's not because of its positioning or price, but more of a question of age and support. With Intel new 3-Series chipsets flooding the market and the impending DDR3 migration, high-end enthusiasts purchasing any upgrades today will probably be leaning towards a DDR3 ready solution rather than be stuck with DDR2.

MSI P6N Diamond - sposób na nForce 680i SLI

PCLab.pl
26 August 2007
  • Conclusion: MSI znalazła receptę na podniesienie atrakcyjności płyty z nForce 680i SLI. Sam chipset jest przecież niezwykle rozwiniętą konstrukcją o ogromnych możliwościach. Dotąd problem rozbijał się o cenę – mało było osób gotowych wydać około 1000 zł na płytę główną. Zastąpienie zwykłego kodeka dźwięku układami X-Fi Sound Blastera (choć wykastrowanymi) sprawiło, że zakup płyty stał się znacznie bardziej opłacalny.
  • Pros: Dobra wydajność, Duża liczba złącz, Rewelacyjna jakość dźwięku, Ogromne możliwości rozbudowy komputera, Najbardziej opłacalna spośród płyt z nForce 680i SLI
  • Cons: Zintegrowany X-Fi to tylko wersja Xtreme Audio, Niższe od spodziewanych wyniki RAID 0, Hałaśliwy wentylator NB (montowany opcjonalnie)
