    Re: NVIDIA nForce 790i SLI chipset

    I take exception to the comment "Then it launched what was to become the enthusiast chipset of choice for Intel LGA775 CPUs."

    680i initially sold well, mainly because of reviews, but it became very clear very quickly that it wasn't as good as the P965s out there, was hot and full of bugs. The only people who ended up buying them were people who saw the name nVIDIA and thought "ooooh, it MUST be good", people wanting SLi support or those who wanted speed before anything else and had watercooling systems.

    I can't remember many spec threads where a 680i-based board was recommended over a P965 one. There were probably more P5Bs sold than there were 680is in total.

    They've fallen a long way since the days of nForce2 and SoundStorm.
