As the title says, where are the nForce 590 chipsets?
Asus released a new revision for its P5N32 called P5N32-SLi SE but in tigerdirect it says it uses a 570 Chipset. Which I dont want. I want 590.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/ite...

Does anybody know when are there motherboards going to be released? I cant wait to have a conroe machine.

Some info here

Finally Guys!!! I got some information from the nVidia Site regarding nForce 500 chipsets

NVIDIA is really excited about the introduction of Intel Core 2 Duo into the marketplace, and we have a whole top-to-bottom family of products from the NVIDIA nForce4 and NVIDIA nForce 500 families, including the industry's only true dual x16 PCIe solution, as well as support for NVIDIA QuadSLI.

Currently, the first product shipping with support for Intel Core 2 Duo will be the ASUS P5N32-SLI SE motherboard. This motherboard is based on the award-winning NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 MCP and should be available around 7/27.

Several additional motherboard models will be announced by NVIDIA shortly. There are an assortment of NVIDIA nForce 500-based motherboards coming soon. They include:

An ECS 570 SLI motherboard that will have a retail price of only $90 USD!

An ASUS 570 SLI motherboard that will have a retail price of only $110 USD.

A DFI nForce 590 SLI motherboard. I don't know their retail price yet.

An ASUS 590 SLI motherboard. Retail price will be under $200 USD with availability around 8/1.
A list of Intel processors that are fully supported by NVIDIA can be found here. Please check back for further information.

--------------------------------------

I just hope the ASUS 590 releases August 1 to see my conroe working :)

Hey slim much appreciated for posting this. It has altered my current motherboard decision. Looking forward to the nvidia options.

take care!

Your are welcome :) 

I needed to know what was going on with nForce 500 series for Intel thats why I did a little research :) 
July 30, 2006 12:28:49 AM

DUDE DID YOU SEE THE PRICE OF THAT BOARD?!?!?!

It's $1400!!! Probably a typo or something but OMG!

What does the 590 chipset get you?

How does it compare to the chipset ATI is coming out with (SD600)?

I might be leaning towards nVidia now, since I don't know what to expect
from ATI in the future.
July 30, 2006 12:34:02 AM

Hmm I started with NVIDIA since they release good videocards and not too expensive. ATI thinks people can pay hundreds of dollars in just videocards.
Also I like more SLI than CrossFire.
July 30, 2006 12:59:22 AM

I just ordered the Asus P5W DH deluxe because of the good review it got from Anandtech. It was pricey indeed...$250. But last mobo I got was a cheapo and I paid the price, I was tired of crappy performance and limited OC'ing so I got the best of the best (of the 5 that are currently available!) So...I hope it isn't ridiculously inferior to the NVidia mobos coming out.

July 30, 2006 2:17:08 AM

I really dont like Intel 965 chipsets. The only one acceptable is the Asus 965.
I really like more the 975x but anyways ill go for nvidia.

Dude make sure you read carefully before you post. I went like wtf. :) 
July 30, 2006 5:52:45 AM

okay thats great, but like the GIgabyte board dq6 will it support quad-core. I'm looking for 2pci-e 16x slots and quad-core compatible.

Anyone have a model number or link? Is this even on sale yet?
July 30, 2006 6:36:59 AM

Guys, u should seriously consider waiting a few days for the nForce 590 chipset mobos to be released. Asus and DFI are rumored to release them August 1st. Here's Anandtech's review on 590: here u go You don't have to restart windows to change BIOS! Performance wise it's very close, pretty much identical to intel's 975X, but has way better features IMO. I'm definitely waiting!
July 30, 2006 7:53:13 AM

Thankfully my build wont begin until mid-Sep, so I have time to wait n see. Hopefully Nvidia's final solution meets or surpasses the Intel chipsets. Worst case, it will at least drive down the prices of competitors.
July 30, 2006 2:52:10 PM

The nForce 590 will kill the 975 rev 304. SLI at 16x each port. wow what else you want?
July 30, 2006 3:33:13 PM

right here this board cost 285 but CAD

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=19512

And mabye when 590 sli will come out mabye i should consider getting some sli memory and EPP technology RAM with nice timing?

or just EPP and sli because i heard that cas latency doesint matter that much in INTEL cpu's?

The Asus PN32-SLI SE is not a Nforce 500 motherboard but is the Nforce 4 motherboard modified to support conroe.

http://www.asus.com/products4.aspx?l1=3&l2=11&l3=0&mode...

Asus has not announced what the 500 chipset motherboards will be called yet. I don't expect you will see them for another month though since availability usually is a month after they make their announcement on their website.

I'm waiting on the Asus 590 board because the 590 is suppose to have all the bell and whistles and is suppose to support quad-sli if I decide to upgrade to it.

Ya I would recommend getting memory with good timing, the one I'm looking at is Mushkin redline PC8000. Check it out here. As far as timings not meaning as much on intels, I don't see why good timings wouldn't benefit as much on them. You want to get memory with as tight of timings as you can find(especially tight timings at high clocks, like the Mushkin). You should read this article on how memory performs on Conroe too. It might clear things up a bit. Basically, since intel doesn't have an on-chip memory controller, AMD beats it as far as pure memory bandwidth. However, Intel still wins hands down in real world tests. Imagine how good intel could be if they had the on-chip controller too.

I'm told that 590 for Intel boards are still about a month away ...
July 31, 2006 12:49:48 AM

According to NVIDIA they will be here tomorrow maybe on tuesday they will be available for sale.
July 31, 2006 1:56:05 AM

where'd you hear that? Cause on the nVidia site it says the one from Asus could be out as soon as this week. It listed 8/1 as the soonest date.
July 31, 2006 2:16:13 AM

its also signifantly cheaper! 150 bucks for a feature rich motherboard with SLI works for me.

I didn't think i'd do SLI but i'm now thinking that since i plan to get windows vista it might be a good idea to have that option just in case.

False.

The nforce4 nvidia motherboards that are conroe compatible are the ones you are talking about. The Nforce 590 is a completely different chipset. It will not be out till the end of August most likely. No one even has announced official motherboards for that chipset yet because they are still working with the engineering samples. These are two different chipsets we are talking about here. The 590 chipset is the one that has the advanced memory stuff, first packet, quad sli capable etc. The nforce4 motherboards you are talking about are the same motherboards that have allready been out for 2 months(in most cases) that have been capatible with the pre-conroe cpu's. They have just made those boards compatible with conroe and should be shipping this next week, but they are not the same animal as the nforce 590.
July 31, 2006 3:47:34 AM

No, I'm not making a mistake, although I can see why you'd think that. I do know that nForce 4 sli has been out for a long time, and they are releasing a few new nForce 4 sli mobos as of late, actually on the 27th or something. However, I'm talking about nForce 590 sli, the real deal. Check this out:

With all the buzz surrounding the Intel Core 2 Duo, NVIDIA's Bryan Del Rizzo passed along the following information in regards to nForce4 and nForce 500 support.
We are really excited about the introduction of Intel Core 2 Duo into the marketplace, and we have a whole top-to-bottom family of products from the NVIDIA nForce4 and NVIDIA nForce 500 families, including the industry's only true dual x16 PCIe solution, as well as support for NVIDIA QuadSLI.

In addition, many system builders are using this motherboard for their first Intel Core 2 Duo systems. We will have a press release later this month outlining all of the global system builders for NVIDIA nForce products.

I think you will find that the 500 chipset ones still won't be out till the end of August. The 1st is tomorrow. I have been watching ZipZoomfly and NewEgg. Zipzoom has had the P5N32-SLI SE on their site for almost two weeks now but they have not as yet received any shipments. I expect more of the same when the other boards come out so you are still looking at 3-4 weeks longer at least.
July 31, 2006 3:31:26 PM

GOD what happened to me? I thought today was 1 !!! I need some sleep :p 

Well tomorrow Ill check again. Thanks for tellin me what today was.

Damn, I hope not... that'd be really frustrating, cause I'm only waiting on that and my X6800 to ship, other than that I could build my computer in a few days. I go back to college on the 23rd, so I'd really like to have it built by then. If not, oh well I guess. Thanks for the info, and I guess we can all just keep watching and keeping each other updated. I think I'll even give Asus and nVidia calls today. If I find anything out I'll let u guys know.

nforce 590 sli intel edition will not have linkboost at the beginning .
is it a question of software or harware?
July 31, 2006 9:00:06 PM

I don't know whether it's hardware or software, this is the first I've heard of it. I had read your question before I wrote to nVidia about a date for the 590 launch, so I asked them your question too.
August 1, 2006 12:07:30 AM

I did just notice this on zipzoomfly today. The have a PN5Sli nforce 570 board now on their site but it is back ordered. They usually do this when the board is available for them to order. But I really want the 590 so their is hope they will be comming soon.

Dont waste your money on x8 PCI'express ports they wont compare to a 590 in any way.

Tomorrow we will see what happens keep an eye on ASUS and nVidia

August 2, 2006 7:07:06 PM

Will the 590 be OC friendly in the range of say 1GHZ for the E6600, or is there some other alternative that is already out and working with the E6600?

How is ANYONE gonna have an answer to that, when the boards aren't out yet and no one has tried them out. Do you want a guessing contest? Go flip a coin instead, it'll do you as much good.

Well, reference boards have been out for a while now, and there have been reviews on them, so some people could probably know whether they're likely to be OC friendly. So before biting someone's head off for asking a question, first you should deal with the problem that's making you crabby. It really wasn't a dumb question.

Actually, as of now, they can't OC as well as the 975X boards, but they're going to have improvements as time goes by. I think in general, the Core 2 processors are OC friendly themselves, so I'm pretty sure that any new board will allow it to be OCed pretty well. The E6300 can actually OC the best, almost as much as the X6800 can if u can believe that, close to 4Ghz. However, don't confuse this with being as fast as an X6800, because even tho they're both at the same core speed, the performance is much better on the X6800.

Guys, I wrote to nVidia and asked them about the Asus and DFI boards coming out with the 590 SLI chipset, and they were pretty vague. Here's they're reply:
Hello Paul,
Thank you for contacting us. Sorry. Since NVIDIA only makes chips, we have limited control over when they will release their motherboard to the market. I am sure once they feel the product is ready, it'll be ready to ship.

Since each motherboard manufacturer implements their product differently using our chipsets, the feature you described may or may not be available initially. To be 100% sure, please contact the manufacturer directly for more information.

Best regards,
David
NVIDIA


I'm going to try contacting ASUS and DFI, so if anyone here has heard anything new, or have already contacted either of those companies, let me know. Thanks

August 3, 2006 12:20:16 AM

Thanks for the post, but that's for socket AM2, not the 775 needed for Core 2. Thanks anyway tho. If you find a motherboard with the 590 SLI with socket 775, then I'll be very excited to hear it! They aren't out yet tho I don't think, not that I can find tho. I'm more interested in when they'll be out, but due to the fact that no one really knows, I'm worried it won't be for a while.

ooppps
my mistake...
guess i should pay closer attention...
August 3, 2006 1:44:20 AM

Both companys have high and low end products. The x1900 GT is quite a competitor in both price and performance with the 7900 GT. The x1900 XT you simply cannot beat for price and performance. I can buy one for 445 $ the closest performing nVidia card is over 600 $. Both companys produce great products, and no matter what you hear both gfx manufacturers have flawed drivers.
August 3, 2006 2:49:18 AM

so is ther any updates i am waighting around to find out when i should be looking for the 590 slias well looking to what it has to bring to the plate will go great with 6800 and epp ram
!
