Introduction

Introduction

MSI's P6N SLI series of motherboards are the long awaited successors to their strong NVIDIA nForce 4 Intel Edition based P4N family (there aren't any P5Ns because MSI skipped the lackluster nForce 500 Intel Edition series altogether). MSI paper launched the P6N SLI lineup late November last year with three boards, the high-end P6N SLI Diamond, the mid-range P6N SLI Platinum and the mainstream P6N SLI running on the nForce 680i SLI and nForce 650i SLI chipsets respectively. Originally hinting at a December 2006 release, MSI has since revised their projections for a Q1'07 launch. Since then, news regarding these boards have been scarce to say the least, until now. Following our exclusive review of the Gigabyte GA-N680SLI-DQ6, www.hardwarezone.com brings you another exclusive early review of the MSI P6N SLI Platinum motherboard.
