The installation halted pretty quickly as it could not locate any of my hard drives in the Raid 0 array. Second, memory performance was to be upgraded to support Dual Channel DDR memory which was designed to give full memory capability to the latest AMD CPU’s as well as being able to route the extra memory bandwidth to the onboard graphics for the IGP versions and the Hyper-Transport protocols in order to produce a much faster chipset. Stacked with technology and useful features, ABIT have their interpretation up and raring to go. It supported a range of K7 architecture AMD processors and core designs that spanned the period from to The AMD Athlon XP series arrived in and was an immediate hit with enthusiasts, offering superior performance than Intel equivalents, coupled with reasonably competitive prices.

It looks formidable on paper. Yes, my password is: Apr 22, Posts: Back on XP and the performance has returned. A trip to Sounblaster gave me a Vista driver for my Audigy 2 and so all appeared well in Device manager. On paper, the nForce was the ultimate in chipset technology, on the actual front line; the nForce had some major flaws which we will re-cap on now.

You can get rid of the SM Bus controller! Apr 23, at 9: It was manufactured using a nm 0.

Which NForce drivers for Abit NF7-S using Vista?

Actually – Vista seems to be settling down now. Games would not run properly for me. Check out the submission from I. Discussion in ‘ Motherboards ‘ started by PeterTFeb 3, First off the memory controller, while being able to supply double the memory bandwidth of the KTA, the chipsets engine didn’t distribute the extra bandwidth to the extra devices like the onboard video, Hyper-transport link and so on the way it should have.


Whilst it matched the nfogce VIA solution on a performance basis, and beat it in the technological and feature stakes, it’s relatively high price ensured that VIA could just hold on to their Socket A mantle as 1 chipset maker.

I have to say that I am disappointed with Nvidia, why won’t they release Vista chipset drivers for the Nforce 2 nfofce This is definitely the best overclocking nForce 2 motherboard. With five bit PCI slots you won’t have any problems adding in future expansion cards if desired either. Do you already have an account?

Find other tech and computer products like this over at Amazon UK’s website. Knowing how well those other two iterations of the NF7 platform have performed, I’m sure you’ll agree we have some high expectations about what this board will be able to do, so let’s get started!

Return next week when we will focus on the AMD Socket platform and the motherboards, chips and scores that defined that particular era. The nForce Ultra was most popular with overclockers due to its ability reach higher clock speeds with independent CPU, memory and AGP overclocking. The company has two boards in the top ten and 4. It indicates they care about the level of quality of their product and considering the recent failure rates surrounding some low ESR capacitors, this nfprce an important area for ablt longevity of the board.

Our AMD series of articles kicks off with the classic Socket Aa CPU socket and platform which many us will recall with fondness, not least because it also involved some memorably overclockable processors. You can find the submission from I. The VIA Nfprce and KT may well have been the most popular in terms of units shipped globally, but it lacked the necessary performance features that overclockers craved.

I tried a Beta driver and the same prob. Robbie, please could you give a deatailed run through how you installed Vista.
