MSI P7N2 Diamond Motherboard Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
TweakTown has posted a review of the high-end MSI P7N2 Diamond, which is based on the NVIDIA nForce 790i SLI Ultra chipset.
Heres what they had to say:
790i is now set to really make a name for itself, since its the only chipset for Intel to really support the Core 2 range with any SLI support. NVIDIA has been very greedy with its SLI licensing to other chipset manufacturers. Since the GTX 200 series has finally landed, and its performance in SLI has proven to be good, 790i will go up in stock now.
MSIs version of the 790i differs from the reference design, which is nice. After all, if all the boards are going to be reference clones, theres no point in choosing a brand, just a board. The P7N2 Diamond is extremely powerful; its overclocking is impressive compared to the X48 chipset, but will it compare to a P45 chipset? - That we will have to see soon.
Along with the ASUS Striker II series and the Foxconn Dreadnought, the P7N2 Diamond is one of the few nForce 790i-based motherboards that differs significantly from NVIDIA's reference design. While MSI products aren't known for their overclocking feats, this board reached an impressive 561Mhz FSB, which is the highest that Ive seen among all reviewed 790i boards.
