Features & Benefits


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.

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.

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.

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.
