Hello Everyone,

 

 

We’ve just posted a new article at HotHardware in which we evaluate the features, overclockability, and performance of Gigabyte’s over the top GA-N680SLI-DQ6.  Here’s a snip from the piece…

 

 

“In this article, we're going to showcase yet another Gigabyte-built mobo - the GA-N680SLI-DQ6 - that seemingly out does every other desktop motherboard in a number of key areas.  How do four Gigabit LAN controllers, 10 SATA ports, 100% solid-state capacitors, and a unique wrap-around, passive, cooling apparatus strike you?  And did we mention the board is based on NVIDIA's nForce 680i SLI chipset and has three full length, PCI Express x16 slots for multi-GPU action?”

 

 

You can check out the rest of the article right here.

ok read the article now and still....   Two I can see, but why four LAN ports?  I understand that maybe you would want this sort of thing for a LAN and a separated internet connections as I do here in my work space, however 4 is a lil much.  The board is good looking and clearly a performer tho, so maybe they are anticipating it to be a 'do's it all' board, and your networking hub all in one?

Agree there.  Basically there is no reason for having 4 Gig-E ports. I'm sure it just adds cost.
