Today we get to take a look at the ASUS P5N-E SLI. Asus makes great products. We have seen a few different motherboards from them, as well as their wireless routers. So far, all of the reviews have concluded that these are solid products. I have a feeling that this motherboard wonít disappoint us. Read on to find out.
A market changing event happened last year. AMD bought ATI. This radically changed the way companies do business. Youíre probably thinking, how could AMD and ATI influence nVidia and Intel?
Letís go back in time to before the merger. nVidia made the best chipsets for AMD processors. They werenít in the Intel market at all, but dominated the AMD market. It took SLI to finally get an Intel CPU-supported chipset. When this was released, it was really buggy and a major hassle to use. In contrast, the AMD nForce 4 SLI was one of the best chipsets of all time. ATI was just getting into the chipset market with their Crossfire motherboards.
When the two companies became one, it kind of pushed out nVidia. Intel has always been one of the strongest in chipsets, but made friends with nVidia after ATI went to bed with AMD. This next line of chipsets from nVidia is here, and from what Iíve read, they are leaps and bounds better and are ready for the mainstream market. It's time to see if this one lives up to the hype.
