Features & Benefits


NVIDIA nForce4 SLI MCP-based platforms support two NVIDIA SLI-ready graphics cards and dramatically scale gaming and graphics performance by allowing two graphics cards to be run in parallel. Only supported in the NVIDIA nForce4 SLI MCPs.

NVIDIA® MediaShield™ Storage
Suite of features that safeguards your most important digital media assets; always reliable, scalable, and accessible. Includes RAID and drive support.

SATA 3Gb/s
Doubles bus bandwidth and provides blazingly high disk performance. Take advantage of the latest SATA-2 3Gb/s hard disk drives with full support for native and tagged command queuing, and for hot plug. Native command queuing provides higher disk performance in a multi-threaded environment by performing out-of-order disk accesses.

ActiveArmor Secure Networking Engine
Enhances network security while delivering the highest system performance by offloading CPU-intensive packet filtering tasks in hardware, providing users with a PC networking environment that is both fast and secure. Supported on select NVIDIA nForce4 MCPs.

ActiveArmor Firewall
ActiveArmor Firewall protects your PC from intruders by filtering unauthorized traffic. Integrated into NVIDIA nForce4 MCPs, it provides professional-grade traffic inspection capabilities, ‘instant-on’ protection, advanced management features—remote access, configuration, and monitoring—and is easy to use and setup via a user friendly wizard.

PCI Express Support
Designed to run with the next-generation PCI Express graphics cards and other devices. This bus delivers over 4GBps in both upstream and downstream data transfers.

NVIDIA Native Gigabit Ethernet
The industry’s fastest Gigabit Ethernet performance eliminates network bottlenecks and improves overall system efficiency and performance.

NVIDIA nTune Performance Application
Enables one of the safest and easiest ways to automatically optimize your PC. nTune automatically detects the application running and dynamically optimizes the PC settings. 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.

NVIDIA NVMixer Application
Completely control all aspects of the NVIDIA nForce audio experience—including volume adjustment, recording options, and speaker configuration—through easy-to-follow wizards.

64-Bit Architecture
NVIDIA nForce4 and NVIDIA nForce3 MCPs provide advanced processing capabilities and system innovations for the 64-bit AMD processor architecture.

Single-Chip Architecture
Revolutionary single-chip architecture enables higher-quality, full-featured motherboards and delivers maximum performance with the lowest latency. The single-chip design also means less power consumption and less heat dissipation.

 HyperTransport Technology
A state of the art I/O bus interface, delivering the highest continuous throughput-800MB/s-between the nForce platform processors. Ensures data and information are relayed through the system as quickly as possible. For AMD platform support only.

 NVIDIA ForceWare Unified Software Environment (USE)
Ensures the best out-of-box experience for every user by delivering industry-leading features for graphics, audio, video, communications, storage, and security; one driver for all products; and continual performance and feature updates over the life of the product.

 Serial ATA
Next-generation storage technology enables easy-to-install, high-performance, low-power hard drives.
