New DFI Lanparty UT NF590 SLI-MR2/G

Recommended Posts

Hehee... "Neo" right the ide thing is abit of a shocker. But I was really-really glad to see a floppy header on the board. Been werkin' on some cookie-cutter rigs.l,That don't have them. More and more all the time.Not a big deal I guess. I can usually werk around that fairly easy. (But I haven't faced stealth_boot.B onna' cookie cutter with a sata and no floppy header.(Yet!)

I myself do like my old stuff,Zip 100s,serial port modems,lpt printers.

But truthfully the industrie's need to keep us buyin' new stuff. And after awhile the new stuff actually werks right. (Cause' it's old!) I allway's wait awhile before jumpin' on the band-wagon. For acoupla' reason's off the top. First new products usually buggs(Usually need firmware updates,driver updates or revision. Then new products are usually quite alot diffrent from the previous product.

I sorta' like to see how well these things werk before I jump in with both feet. What they werk well with.best set-up ect. Third money, sumpin's been out awhile is usually abit cheaper.

 

But I must admit that someday I would really would like to buy one of these boards when they are fresh off the drawing board and first go into production. And help discover-iron out the issues with them. I mentioned before the nf3 939 thread. My hat's off to "Old-Guy" and the other adopters.(Angry,Rgone,others) For findin' these issues and solvin' em. Like pencil pokin' the N-B fan.(Replacement) And the 6800gt fast-write issue. (I'm sure that's an issue w/all nf3's)The later is why I'm not running one of those. Couldn't see the point in upgrading my rigg for 3000-5000 3dmarks01.(10000-15000 Ohh-kayyy... I'm in... LOL) Like also mentioned before. I really enjoy readin' the debugg thread new products almost allways generate. That's enough outta' me .Best to ya's. I'm sure it'll be a winner. "Clay"

PS I'll be readin'.

Does any body know WHEN the new AM2 will be out on the market? I am holding back on ASUS hoping for a DFI coming out in Singapore.

I think he's saying if he was a os tester, populer one with a site.

If he could get one directly from amd, a cpu.

 

Which the answwer would be no.

Microsoft might get some lol.

But you don't.

 

Not unless you're a hardware reviewer, one that has some reviews allready, gotta be known out there and etc to get free parts from diff companies.

 

Even then, you would likely have to sign an nda for each review.

Since there is time limitations, if someone is supposed to get the exclusive, you can't post your review before them.

If you're only supposed to show certain results, then that's what you have to abide by.

 

For example a video card.

If you're not supposed to show ogl performance and how well it does it, then you make it look like you never thaught about doing it, like it does'nt exist.

Broudening your view on the d3d, like the video card maker would want you to do if it's in the nda/contract thingy.

 

How to get started on reviewing and etc, well that's something not meant for disscussion here and stuff.

 

 

And yeah my post looks lame, I dont' kno why I'm explaining it...

you shoudl know better then to think you can get free hardware because you test software.

Most software dev's would not get free hardware like this.

Some do, but it's donations from other users.

Peopel that make a reputable os perhaps might get free cpu's for testing with.

If it's deemed importat to the cpu makers that piece of software needs to work correctly with the cpu.

Then again being a tester and a dev is a diff thing too...

 

Blah blah blah.

 

Sorry HG/mods and people's.
