Asus A7N8X Deluxe nForce2 Motherboard Review

Subject: Motherboards
Manufacturer: Asus


This content was originally featured on and has been converted to PC Perspective's website. Some color changes and flaws may appear.

Back in October, with the release of the Athlon XP 2700+ processor, I reviewed an Asus A7N8X motherboard that was a pre-production sample sent to us by AMD. The sample was basically taken from Asus in an unfinished format, before they were able to complete the board to be ready for the retail market. While not very much did change on the motherboard, it is obvious from our testing that they were able to squeeze some more out of the chipset and motherboard to provide end users with a better experience.

Other than that pre-production board, the only other nForce2 board reviewed on was the Leadtek K7NCR18D which proved to best the Asus board in almost every aspect. Can the Leadtek board hold onto the lead it had back in November, or will the retail version of the Asus A7N8X best it? This is the first of a few nForce2 motherboard reviews that you will see in succession from me here on; so keep your eyes open for even more boards to compare these too in the near future.

For now, let’s take a detailed look at the layout and features of the Asus A7N8X motherboard.
