    Today NVIDIA launched their nForce 500 Family chipsets for the AMD AM2 Socket. There will be four models to allow a wide range of motherboard products from budget to high-end for enthusiasts. A lot of new features have been introduced like SLI Memory, First Packet, DualNet and Media Shield. Read our preview to find out what the new nForce500 offers.

    Very well written article - now I have to be a smart-ass and ask the following question: Will the SLI version support Crossfire? :laugh:

    Well that would be great, but no it will not. NVIDIA wants you to buy NVIDIA graphic cards ;)
