They do?


I have machines here with nv_raid, nv_net, nv_sound, nv_video, nv southbridge, and northbridge..........in other words complete motherboards with nvidia componants.


I have never seen ATI southbridge, or northbridge, ATI networking chipps, ATI sound, or ATI raid.....................


I would be interested if you could point me in the direction of complete ATI system motherboards. :tup:




http://www.theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=21583 Lists a mobo with an ATI North and South bridge.


Another one with ATI north & south bridge: http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1789


nVidia hasn't dabbled in sound since the soundstorm days. I've owned several of their mobos, and nowhere did I see anything sound related that was made by nvidia. If you want, I can look up the specs of every mobo made after the NF2 with Soundstorm.


I also had two NF2 based mobos w/ Soundstorm, until I switched to my A64.


I know ATI doesn't do RAID, sound, or networking, but in reality, they don't have to. The chips from Marvell, Broadcom, Realtek, Promise and others do just fine for networking, sound, and RAID.

wishfull thinking, but I wouldn't mind seeing a AMD/ATI motherboard that uses the Highpoint 372n raid controller for SATA or IDE......that has to be the best performing onboard raid controller that i have ever had the pleasure of using.


the way i see it, we won't start seeing any leaps-and-bounds improvements from this merger for at least 9 to 12 months......after that the sky is the limit.
