Massive nVidia nForce2 Motherboard Roundup - Massive nVidia nForce2 Motherboard Roundup
Wed Jul 02, 2003 | 2:29P| PermaLink
As a newbie to the chipset market, nVidia's original nForce chipset struck out pretty badly despite being fast for its time. The reasons for the failure were simple, the first nforce chipsets were expensive and bogged down by delay after delay which caused a very late release to market. Despite a bit of a delay at the release of the nForce2 chipset, nVidia appears to have learned their lessons well and have not made the same mistakes twice. Consequently, the nForce2 chipset is enjoying widespread popularity among consumers. There are many reasons why nVidia's nForce2 chipset has proven successful so far; it delivers excellent performance, it's aggressively priced and most importantly it's an extremely stable and reliable platform. The only hiccup has been a brief issue with some recent drivers, but that looks like a one off. Amazingly the competition has not been able to mount any sort of counter to the nForce2. VIA, the main rival in the AMD chipset market has only recently released the KT600, a chipset that finally offers some real competition to the nForce2. Fortunately for nVIDIA, the VIA KT600 is not battle tested and VIA's track record with first generation chipsets is pretty poor (KT133 -> KT133A, KT266 -> KT266A anyone?).
