Default OCers Online compares: Nvidia nForce 650i SLI vs. nForce 680i SLI

They found that the 650i performs on a par with the 680i and recommend it over other more expensive boards.

"Nvidia has truly broken out as the #1 chipset supplier for the AMD platform and they are also making their way into the Intel scene with the new nForce 600 series.

Indeed, the graphics giant has become so dominant on the AMD side of things that they are able to offer a wide range of supporting chipsets. Currently they offer support to Socket AM2 users with four different chipsets: the nForce 590 SLI, 570 SLI, 570 Ultra and 550. However, the nForce 500 series is now old news as the more up to date nForce 600 series has become available. Surprisingly, for the first time ever, the latest nForce chipset made its first appearance on the Intel platform, bringing Core 2 owners three new chipsets: the nForce 680i SLI, 650i SLI and 650i Ultra. Nvidia has also released the nForce 680a SLI chipset for the latest AMD platforms, though few have adopted it. Thanks to thriving Intel desktop processor sales, Nvidia had no choice but to turn their attention away from AMD and focus it on Intel."
