Key Features
SLI™-Ready for extreme performance  SLI™-Ready for extreme performance
Supports two NVIDIA SLI-ready graphics cards for scalable performance. NVIDIA nForce4 SLI MCPs include dedicated SLI hardware to maximize gaming performance.

DualDDR2 DualDDR2 for high performance memory support
Advanced low latency, high-bandwidth memory controller supports DualDDR2-667 MHz DIMMs and beyond. NVIDIA QuickSync™ technology minimizes memory latency; and NVIDIA DASP 3.0 technology offers integrated pre-processor that additionally reduces system latency and maximizes performance. (Available for NVIDIA nForce4 MCPs for Intel platforms only)

PCI Express Technologically advanced PCI Express
Designed to run with the next-generation PCI Express graphics cards and other devices. Supports two PCI Express graphics slots and three x1 PCI Express expansion slots. This new bus delivers over 4GBps in both upstream and downstream data transfers.


NVIDIA ActiveArmor NVIDIA ActiveArmor™ - Unmatched security
Dedicated hardware-based ActiveArmor secure networking engine and ActiveArmor Firewall  protect your PC from hackers and spyware the minute it is turned on and filters out any unauthorized or suspicious traffic. NVIDIA ActiveArmor secures your PC against a wide range of attacks including IP-spoofing and ARP cache poisoning. Easy to set up and fast to configure, ActiveArmor offers remote secure access, monitoring, and configuration for management.
Additionally, ActiveArmor performs network and security processing in the MCP, leaving the CPU free for gameplay.

NVIDIA MediaShield NVIDIA MediaShield™ - Advanced storage with RAID technology
Unique support for four SATA 3Gb/s and four ATA-133 drives. RAID 5*, 0, RAID 1, and RAID 0+1 support, enabling fast disk data transfers. Allows RAID arrays across both SATA and PATA hard drives and provides advanced features like the NVIDIA disk alert system that immediately alerts you if a drive fails, and dedicated spare disks that will automatically rebuild if a failed hard drive is detected.  (*RAID 5 supported only for Intel platforms)

Gigabit Ethernet NVIDIA Gigabit Ethernet - Fast download and transfer times
Delivers one the highest throughputs for fast network transfers and lowers CPU utilization. Runs 10/100/1000 Ethernet up to full Gigabit speeds. TCP/IP task offloading eliminates network bottlenecks and improves overall system efficiency and performance.


NVIDIA nTune NVIDIA nTune™ - Optimized PC Performance
Enables one of the safest and easiest ways to optimize your PC and squeeze more performance out of the box. Faster than tuning by hand, nTune delivers optimal settings for bus speeds, HyperTransport, memory timings, CPU registers, fans, and voltages in a safe, easy-to-use Microsoft® Windows® interface. Provides the ability to overclock system settings without entering the BIOS or changing hardware jumpers.
