Check out the submission from I. The nForce Ultra was most popular with overclockers due to its ability reach higher clock speeds with independent CPU, memory and AGP overclocking. Where we do see a change is the new Northbridge chip. The VIA KT and KT may well have been the most popular in terms of units shipped globally, but it lacked the necessary performance features that overclockers craved. We could run any test and the NF7-S passed all of them even running Prime 95 overnight. Unfortunately there were some features missing that hard core enthusiast wanted.
