XFX nForce 780i SLI
Posted by newsbot on January 11th 2008



It may look better, but it also costs £20 more than an XFXnForce 680iSLI and we'd certainly be tempted to sit back and wait to see if thenForce 780i SLI suffers from the same significantly high number ofboard deaths that the nForce 680i SLI had - personally I'd choose acompany with a good RMA service and warranty period, just to be safe.In that respect, XFX's two year warranty is clearly outshone by itsAmerican alternative, EVGA, which offers a fantastic and industryleading ten year warranty.The nForce 780i SLI suffers from stuff that just hasn't been updated;no solid aluminium capacitors, no re-FABed chipsets on a coolerprocess, no updated BIOS flashing utilities, no overclocking safeguards and not even a CMOS button.Even though the XFX nForce 780i SLI performs well, is stable and looksgood, it just simply lacks in features I'd expect an enthusiast boardto have. I can't help but want to look elsewhere to the Tier Onemanufacturers for a quiet solution that is better kitted out.
