I'm a big fan of ASUS motherboards in general and their SLI motherboards in particular. Over the last 10 months, my favorite motherboard is the A8N-SLI motherboard based upon NVIDIA's SLI chipset launched last year. Performance, features, stability and general usage has been excellent. It's hard to imagine that it's been almost a year since SLI was introduced.

NVIDIA is the premier motherboard chipset manufacturer for the AMD Athlon 64 platform. More AMD chipsets are sold with NVIDIA chips than any other manufacturer including SIS, VIA, ATI and more. NVIDIA first entered the chipset market in 2000 with the release of the nForce motherboard chipset. Subsequent releases include the nForce2, the nForce3, the nForce3 250Gb, the nForce4, the nForce4 Ultra, and the nForce4 SLI. Earlier this year in August, NVIDIA announced the nForce4 SLI X 16 platforms. Today, I'm reviewing the ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard.
