Surprise, its the nForce4 SLI Intel Edition from Biostar. If you love nForce, but need to go with Intel, it's no longer a problem. The board has all you'd expect from nForce 4, with the nice simplicity of setup that BioStar tends to prefer, according to Bjorn3D. If it's not a motherboard you want, 4 new chips were announced today, one Intel and 3 AMD.
"For years, NVIDIA fans and general enthusiasts wondered if NVIDIA would ever release an Intel chipset. The nForce chipsets made quite an impact over the years on the AMD side of things, so it only made sense that NVIDIA would eventually try its luck on the bigger side of the fence. Back in April of this year, NVIDIA finally answered that looming question with a resounding 'yes!' as it launched the nForce4 SLI Intel Edition. My first experience with nForce4 SLI IE was a positive one, but that was with a reference board from NVIDIA. Now, it's time to look at a retail offering to see if it provides a similar satisfactory experience. The board on the lab bench today is the Biostar N4SIE-A7."
