Taipei (Taiwan) - DFI is looking to get back to its glory days: In the past, the company made waves with its nForce 4 SLI motherboard, but the enthusiasm for the brand and DFI’s products slowed has down. Now the company is looking to re-establish its market presence with a CrossFire micro-ATX motherboard.
Unlike all mainstream motherboards with AMD’s 780G or 790GX chipset, this mATX board has two PCIe Gen2 x16 slots, which allow users to plug in two ATI-powered cards. Even better, this motherboard supports dual-slot cards, so even Quad-CrossFire is doable (two 3870 X2 or 4870 X2).
To create a convincing overclocking mATX motherboard, BIOS wizard Oscar Wu even moved to DFI’s office, where he is apparently working night and day in order to come up with overclocking options. Time will tell can if this product can get DFI back into the market, but if you are looking for a compact, yet potential gaming machine, this just might do the trick.
The motherboard will come to market during the summer, we were told.
