It seems to one of the best SLI boards going to come out.
With 4 volts vdimm and 2.1v for vcore.
No more need for the OCZ DDR booster with 4 volts vdimm :p.

Also DFI have chosen a different route to SLI which may be able to support 2 ATI card in SLI. Though this is only a RUMOUR it sure sounds good.

Spec for the LANPARTY UT nF4 SLI-D

Single VGA mode
- 1 PCI Express graphics card on the PCIE1 slot will run at x16 bandwidth.
- The other PCI Express x16 slot (PCIE4) will run at x2 bandwidth.

omfg......i would so buy one if i had the money and not a socket 754 64 CPU.

Looks V V V good though.

mmm...I love dfi boards, 4 volts vdimm will help a loot for overclocking without a booster no more risky motherboard mods ! :)

bunnymanboy 01-06-2005 12:55 PM

Do I see 7 power connectors?!!!!

neosteve 01-06-2005 01:33 PM

Those power connectors you are seeing are heatsinks not power connctors.

7 would be madness.

If the one you have is Pci express Then just keep it and Buy another one to run SLI, if the one you currently have is a AGP version you will have to get new Pci express cards you could get a 6600gt in single or sli, or you could wait for stock of the 6800gt pci express to become avaliable. It all depends on that you're willing to spend

Holy Shiite Muslims (no offense) thats the baby I'm planning on, but WHERE DID YOU GET THE LINKS/PICTURES??????

neosteve 01-06-2005 02:35 PM

If you do keep the card you have then whats the use of this board if you cant run SLI.

If you do decide to keep your old card then get the Ultra version of this board it has one PCI-E Slot and should suit your needs.

Links plz?
