It seems very nostalgic to say so, but back in the Pentium 4/Pentium D days, NVIDIA's nForce 4 family of chipsets proved to be the top choice, besting even Intel's own 955X/975X Express chipsets in terms of raw performance and overclockability. NVIDIA launched the successor to the nForce 4 earlier this year, but the new nForce 500 series was initially only available for the AMD platform with Intel Editions 'on the way'. Now with all the attention around Intel's new babies - the Core 2 processor and Broadwater chipset - it has been a while since we've seen NVIDIA's chipsets in the limelight. So comes into play ECS' new NFORCE 570 SLIT-A (rev 5.1) motherboard. As its name implies, it is based on the nForce 570 SLI Intel Edition chipset.

The following table lists the bundled peripherals and technical specifications of the ECS NFORCE 570 SLIT-A motherboard:-
