    nForce 5-Intel. I WANT IT.

    Hello,

    As you can see from my thread title, I am desperate for an Nforce5 motherboard that will work with Core Duo.

    Does anybody know where to find them, or if they haven't arrived, does anybody know a release date? I am looking for a NON-SLi mobo, but a high-end one.

    Thanks!

    Because it's future proof, and of course, faster .

    Says who ?. I have not seen any review that back that statement up.
    And what about the ATI offering. I will wait until all 3 manufacturers have released boards.
    I think it will be very hard to beat the 975x/965 combo, plus the first ATI/NVIDIA boards will probably have the same immature BIOSs the the current Intel boards had.

    I just thought that Nforce 5 would be faster and better than nforce4.

    So any idea on the release date?

    Anandtech thought the 590 had promise in their preview. And if you already have 2 7900GTXs then it'll be faster than anything available now simply because of SLI. (unless you are content to run the hacked drivers)

    wouldnt it be better to wait for nForce 6 then? cause that will even faster and even BETTER. and you cant beat a bit of better can you?

    if you'v got a compy now that your planning to upgrade tell us the specs.
    if your building a comp from scratch tell us the specs.

    cause your not making a lot of sence right now

    sooo.. the nforce 5 is better than the nforce 4 bacause the nforce 4 just wouldnt work? well that makes more sence

    not sure of the touchdown date of the nforce 5. but id say its not going to be too far from the geforce 8 series. perhaps if your waiting anyway a little bit longer would be a good thing. apart from that id go for bigger harddrives, 200-250gb ir around the sweet spot at the moment. and 240gb total in a comp of that spec is pretty low.

    I had a blast on NF4. Nothing "didn't work" and my board clocked like hell (it was a DFI after all )

    But Intel and nVidia don't go NF5 on Intel looks to be a croc of poo

    Well I think no-one can make a judgement either way until the boards actually start shipping.
