Hexus' David "Doc" Ross and Andrew "Spode" Miller - both INQ columnists have got the chance to play with those boards and have filed the first results compared with the rather old Via K8T800.
Nforce 3 PRO 250 Gb is a feature rich board that has some interesting stuff such as a hardware firewall it can make HT work at 1000MHz, but only with new 939 Athlon 64 CPUs, and has native S-ATA and RAID, all developed by Nvidia.
If you have been waiting for this board to get it into your 754 system, it may be available between two and four weeks from now.
The chipset supports both AMD Athlon 64 754 and the 939 variation, and the latter version will take full advantage of this CPU and its HT 1000 MHz we understand.
Lot of vendors will show boards up and running at CebIT we are told. µ
