780i SLI Disected - Sneak Peak + BIOS

Posted on Friday, December 07 2007 @ 12:07:11 CET by

BCC Hardware just posted a sneak peek of a motherboard based on the nForce 780i SLI chipset. Not only does this chipset offer up three PCIe 16x slots, is it going to be enough to justify a new model name, bigger price tag and your spending money? This chipset will only run DDR2 - not DDR3 like some had hoped, but it makes up for it with full Intel Yorkfield support. Take a look at their article for some close up shots and a bit of a tour through the BIOS.

While the nVidia 780i SLI chipset isn't blowing anyone away with a whole new level of performance, it does bring some nice features to the table. It adds full PCIe 16x support on all graphics card slots and enables 3-Way SLI on this board. Of course 3-Way SLI is also to be supported on 680i SLI boards, but with one card running on a PCIe 8x interface. Is this worth a model change though? Perhaps not by itself, but also bear in mind that the 780i will offer full Yorkfield support as well - where the 680i simply cannot due to hardware incompatibility.

Check it out at BCC Hardware.
