HardOCP has posted a review of the ECS KN1 Extreme board based on the nForce4 Ultra chipset for the AMD platform. We are working on a board review of this solution as well.
Let's preface this by saying that this is the first ECS motherboard review we have ever completed. In the past, we have tried to review ECS' boards but they have failed so miserably in our testing that we did not see the reason to spend the resources to complete a review on them. That was, however, several years ago.
Introduction & Specs
ASRock delivers another AMD socket 754/939 motherboard, but this time both sockets are on board. You may be surprised to see what improves with upgrading to an FX-53 CPU and what doesn't.
Intro & Specs
Want an AMD Socket 939 motherboard but can't afford the CPU? The ASRock K8 Upgrade 760GX might be what you're looking for by supporting both Socket 754 and Socket 939.

It looks like Asus is readying to see motherboard productions go even higher.
Asustek Computer yesterday broke ground for its new manufacturing site in Nanhui, Shanghai, with the plant set to be ready for volume production in the middle of 2006, according to the Chinese-language Commercial Times.

The gang at Hexus.net has a review up of the MSI motherboard powered by the Intel Edition of the nForce4 SLI chipset.
The SLI performance problem that the likes of Dell would inevitably gloss over, but has been graphically (pun intended) shown on the previous few pages is squarely down to Pentium 4s' relatively weak gaming performance that's exhibited at lower resolutions and/or with games that rely on masses of subsystem grunt.

Here is a taste of what VIA will have to offer us in the SLI department. While the translation is a little shaky HKEPC has some early benchmarks to wet your whistle.

Our own Jonathan Hung has put together a review of the EPoX EP-9NPA+ SLI nForce 4 SLI AMD Motherboard If you are planning to build a new SLI system you will want to look this one over.
The EPoX EP-9NPA+SLI is a very strong contender in the increasingly crowded SLI market. What sets this board apart from the rest is the great feature set and the cheaper price.
