Anandtech has a first look at the nForce 5xx platform for Intel. Of course the nForce platform has been available for AMD forever and to some extent for the Intel platform as well. However I feel that the nForce 5xx is the first true NVidia SLI platform for Intel which is comparable on both the AMD and Intel sides of the fence. With this chipset the Core2 Duo gets what it deserves in terms of features and performance. The 975X went 90% of the way but with NVidia not wanting to approve it for SLI you’re only real choice was the AMD platform as NVidia IMO is the only way to go when it comes to SLI.
