Nvidia are unveiling their nForce 680i LT SLI chipset motherboard, come March 12, which is targetted predominantly at hardcore gamers. The nForce 680i LT SLI chipset is reportedly US$50 cheaper than it's slightly older sibling, but comes with caveats.

Nice to see some active cooling on the chipsets (if its any good), shame they ditched the higher mhz support for ddr2 though...

Aren't the specs of that basically the 650i chipset? Sounds like a rebranding to make something sound more impressive than it is.

Sort of like a wonderbra. Surely that's false advertising.

Aye that's cause it has "hardcore" in the header info in it. Your colleges need a more intelligent filtering service

Try again now please?
