MSI P6N SLI Platinum

  • Excerpt: Make no bones about it, the MSI P6N SLI Platinum is a budget Core 2 board that gets you SLI for a song and a dance. It features the cheapest chipset available with SLI: the Nforce 650i SLI. To make a 650i chipset, take a 680i SLI and cut two SATA ports, lose support for SLI memory, cut a Gigabit Ethernet port, and lose a pair of USB ports.
  • Pros: Auto-update for drivers should be adopted by others.
  • Cons: Realtek audio doesn’t support EAX.

  • Excerpt: While the Nvidia 680i SLI is the enthusiast level chipset from Nvidia, it is certainly not within everybody's price range. 680i LT has brought the price down quite a bit, but there is still a price premium for this high-end chipset, this is why you need to have a mid-range portfolio.

MSI P6N SLI Platinum Motherboard Review

nvnews.net
24 April 2007
  • Summary: MSI has included solid capacitors across the board on the P6N SLI Platinum, which operate at a lower temperature and should account for added stability and product life. I see this as another positive approach by MSI who continue to produce high quality products using the latest technology. The inclusion of heat-pipe cooling for the Mosfets, NB, and SB is a good move for attracting PC enthusiasts.
  • Pros: Price, Excellent stability, Performance, Overclocking capability, Heatpipe cooling solution for both North and South bridges plus the MOSFETs, CMOS reset button, All solid capacitors on the motherboard
  • Cons: Most 40mm high RPM fans are noisey and the optional fan included in this package is no different, Absence of NVIDIA's LinkBoost, SLI-Ready memory support, and DualNet., For ultra high resolution SLI users x16 PCI-e is limited to one slot.

  • Summary: I have lots of good points about the P6N SLI Platinum, and I have some ... just some bad ones. The good points ... well, the performance of the P6N SLI Platinum is very good and compares very well against some of the enthusiast boards out there ... including motheboards based on the Intel 975X and Nividia nForce 680i SLI chipsets. This motherboard is mainly aimed at the mainstream and performance market, but our tests shows otherwise. With good scores all round ...

  • Summary: This board is well designed, for the most part, and has plenty of useful connectivity options. If you want to build a lasting machine for gaming or high-end video and graphics work, then this board will provide a good base.
  • Pros: Two IDE ports, eSATA, clean layout
  • Cons: Only has a 16-lane SLI capability, still requires the use of a circuit board to select SLI mode
