ASUS A8N NFORCE4 DRIVER

0 Comments

We have commented before that Asus pays close attention to the layout of their motherboards, and that also shows in the A8N-SLI Deluxe. Audio is the rather average Realtek with nothing special in the Asus implementation – quite a step down from the leading edge designs of some Asus boards for Intel processors.

The feature set and Deluxe name are generally reserved for Asus for their “notch-down” boards, which might indicate that Asus has plans for a top-line Premium board in the future.

This will be an important feature for users who water-cool their video cards or have special cooling in mind for the pair of SLI cards. The design of the PCB was also the best of the group with positive side locking that looked like it might survive a few changes.

Firewire is also a, or Firewirewhen Asus uses Firewire on their recent Intel boards. The feature set and Aasus name are generally reserved for Asus for their “notch-down” boards, which might indicate that Asus has plans for a top-line Premium board in the future. Add to this below-average overclocking abilities and the problems experienced with our Ultra cards on just the Asus board, x8n it is hard to get too excited about this particular Asus board.

Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe: Features and Layout – nForce4 SLI Roundup: Painful and Rewarding

The storage area is an area where it first appears that the Asus stands out. In its favor, the Asus was the only SLI board that allowed you to change the setup from “normal” to “SLI” without having to first remove the video card. Asus engineering is an important benefit with any Asus product, and the resources of this giant company are impressive. Asus says that this is required for “stable SLI operation”, but the other 3 SLI designs do fine and are quite stable without the 5th power connector.

The Asus is certainly a competent SLI motherboard, but it is pretty average in this roundup and does not stand out in any way other than the wide space between the video slots.

Lately, Asus has stood mforce4 or near the top in overclocking, but that has been truer of Asus Intel solutions than those for AMD.

nForce4 SLI Roundup: Painful and Rewarding

We have nforcce4 before that Asus pays close attention to the layout of their motherboards, and that also shows in the A8N-SLI Deluxe. Perhaps there is another Asus SLI in the works that will do a better job at bringing high-end features to Asus nForce4. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.

All of the other SLI boards provide q8n slots between the video cards. The feature set on the Asus is just average in this roundup. Painful and Rewarding by Wesley Fink on February 28, 7: But as you will see in the roundup, there are better choices among the SLI boards available.

We also very much liked the locks on the video slots because you could release them from the back of the slot as aa8n as the front – a real plus with double slot cards. Audio is the rather average Realtek with nothing special in the Asus implementation – quite a step down from the leading edge designs of some Asus boards for Intel processors.

It is bad enough that two top-end video cards require 4 Molex connectors to power them, but on the Auss board you also have to connect another 4-pin Molex for additional video card power. As you will see later in our overclocking test, however, this capability is basically wasted, since this Asus is not a particularly good overclocker.
