Nvidia nForce 590 mobos shown by ECS and DFI

Reference boards only

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Computex 2006 ECS and DFI were the first motherboard manufacturers to have Intel-oriented nForce 590 SLI-based boards on display at Computex. ECS has one board mounted on the wall together with an array of other motherboards, but it was clear that this was not an ECS motherboard due to the colour scheme. ECS openly admitted that it was indeed an Nvidia reference board.

There was a second board at the ECS stand, one that was fully operation and running some demos, but it was unclear if it was actually using a Core 2 Duo processor or a Pentium D. Next to it was an ATI RD600-based motherboard also busy running demos, although it was fitted with DDR 2 memory and not, as rumoured, DDR 3.

However, according to a source at ATI, the RD600 can use indeed use DDR 3 memory, although only a few modules have made an appearances at Computex.

DFI also displayed an nForce 590 SLI demo system in its booth, and it was clear from the label on the board that this was another reference sample from Nvidia. It seems like the demo boards share some design features with the Foxconn nForce 590 board for AMD processors, which was jointly developed with Nvidia. ®
