In HardwareZone's last review of the MSI K8N SLI, they commented on the trend of how mainstream nForce4 SLI motherboards were popping out of the woodwork due to the imminent release NVIDIA's full speed SLI chipset, the nForce4 SLI X16. With the nForce4 SLI X16 taking over the high-end space for SLI motherboards, the original nForce4 SLI has been relegated towards the mid-range level used to be occupied by the nForce4 Ultra. This of course is a win-win situation for everyone as the SLI platform is now opened up for a wider range of users and no longer confined as enthusiast-only. This move will also allow NVIDIA to increase their market hold on core logic chipsets in both the AMD and Intel space..
