nForce 3 (PR)

kuglvinkl ::

c/p:

NVIDIA enterprise-class networking technology
• NVIDIA IEEE 802.3 MAC (Media Access Controller)
• Supports 10/100 BaseT Ethernet/Fast Ethernet
• ACR and CNR Interface Support
• Enterprise-class network management features
- ASF 1.03 compliant
- Auto negotiation plus
- Flow control
- Traffic prioritization
- ACPI 2.0
- Wake On Lan (WOL)
• NVIDIA StreamThru™ technology
- Isochronous Controller Paired with HyperTransport Results in Fastest Networking Performance

NVIDIA RAID technology
• RAID 0 disk striping support for highest system and application performance
• RAID 1 disk mirroring support for fault tolerance
• RAID 0 +1 disk striping and mirroring support for highest performance with fault tolerance
• Support for both SATA and ATA-133 disk controller standards

Triple Fast Ultra ATA-133 Disk Drive Controllers
• Each interface supports two devices, for a total of six devices
• Third IDE interface can support two IDE-to-SATA bridge master/slave configuration devices to support up to two SATA ports
• Third IDE channel additionally supports an over-clocked mode to achieve UDMA-150 to match the 150MB/sec. of the SATA link interface
• Industry-standard PCI bus master IDE register set
• Separate independent IDE connections for 5V-tolerant primary and secondary interfaces

AGP Interface
• Supports AGP3.0—0.8V signaling for 8x and 4x with Fast Writes data transfers
• Supports AGP2.0—1.5V signaling for 4x, 2x, and 1x modes with 4x and 2x Fast Writes data transfers
• Supports graphics address remapping table (GART) features
• The AGP3.0 8x 533MT/s (million transfers per second) interface provides the user with the ability to upgrade the external graphics card, thus avoiding obsolescence. An external AGP add-in card achieves higher performance than it would on existing platforms.
• AGP interface is backward compatible with the AGP2.0 specification

HyperTransport
• High Throughput (3.6GB/sec.)
• Low Voltage
• Differential
• Low Pin Count Interface
• Isochronous Link between NVIDIA nForce3 Professional and AMD Opteron processor

USB 2.0
• Single USB 2.0 Enhanced Host Controller Interface (EHCI)/Dual USB 1.1 Open Host Controller Interface (OHCI)
• Support for up to 6 ports
• Supports transfer rates at high speed (480Mbps), full speed (12Mbps), and low speed (1.2Mbps)
• Dynamically configures slower devices for best utilization of bandwidth
• Allows USB concurrency
• Dual AC-Link—supports up to two CODECs
• 16-bit or 20-bit stereo output and 16-bit input streams
• Supports input, output, and GPIO channels for host-based modems
• Separate independent functions for audio and modem
• Supports ACR and CNR interface

SPDIF Output (Stereo or AC-3 Output)

PCI Interface
• The NVIDIA nForce3 Professional integrates a fast PCI-to-PCI bridge running at 33MHz. It includes an arbiter that supports six external master PCI slots.
Features of the PCI interface include:
• PCI 2.3-compliant, 5V tolerant
• Supports six external PCI slots at 33MHz
• Supports six bus master arbitration
• PCI master and slave interfaces
• Supports both master-initiated and slave-initiated terminations
• Bidirectional write posting support for concurrency
• Flexible routing of all four PCI interrupts
• Supports read ahead: memory read line (MRL) and memory read multiple (MRM)



he Products

As I said earlier, NVIDIA has 2 versions of the nForce3:

nForce 3 Pro 150
• Out now
• AGP8X Interface for Quadro and other workstation graphics cards
• NVIDIA 10/100 Fast Ethernet with Enterprise-class features
• 3 Ultra ATA-133 Channels with RAID 0, 1, 0+1 NVIDIA
• USB 2.0, AC ’97 Audio, PCI

nForce 3 Pro 250
• Out Fall
• AGP8X Interface for Quadro and other workstation graphics cards
• NVIDIA Enterprise-Class Gigabit Ethernet
• 4 Serial ATA ports and 2 ATA-133 Channels
• USB 2.0, AC ’97 Audio, PCI


onclusion

The key-points of the nForce3 Pro are:

• Designed specifically for the new AMD Opteron 64-bit processor and professional workstation computing environments
• High-performance, single-chip solution
• Industry's only 1P workstation solution for Opteron
• Two products: nForce3 Pro 150 (available now) and nForce3 Pro 250 (available this fall)
• Enterprise-class 10/100 and Gigabit Ethernet networking features including IP v. 6 and ASF
• Hardware accelerated RAID 0, 1, and 0+1 solutions
• NVIDIA commitment to a minimum 6-quarter product availability

With the nForce2, NVIDIA managed to create a kick-ass product for the desktop. It is only natural that they continue the fine tradition and create a chipset for the professional market. The nForce3 Pro promises a lot, and if these promises are fulfilled, NVIDIA has another winner on their hands.

RAID jupiiiiiiii!!! Nic nForce2Ultra --)nForce3 bo moja naslednja plata pa Athlon64 1600Mhz:D

Kaj naj bi pomenilo out noW?
*Epox 8rda+, XP2600+@stock speed, TT Silent Boost, AS5, Ati AH3650
*Abit NF7-S, XP2500+@2425Mhz, 1.85V(220x11), TT Volcano 12, AS5, Rage128PRO

Ne vem, namreč pozabil sem nVidiin Roadmap za 64bitno arhitekturo. IIRC ni bil nForce3 nikjer omenjen (Crush mogoče?), morda je bil pod drugim imenom.

borchi ::

skor ne verjamem, da bo to PRAVI hardware raid. verjetno bo neki takega ko je na zdejšnjih platah.
l'jga

Dami ::

Kje pa piše da naj bi bil hardware RAID? Pa zaka ni gor gigabit lana ter a so SATA, lan in IDE kontorlerji spelan direkt na southbridge al prek PCIja? Kr Catherwood ma tko če se ne motim.
Don't worry about me. The bleeding is just the begining of a healing process.

noraguta ::

Dami imas dve varianti Nforce 3. ena je z gigabit lanom. V obeh inancicaj imas tako SATA kot normalen kontroler na plati.
Itak je to one chip solution. ker north bridge odpade. saj je mem kontroler v Hammerje ze vgrajen.

Drugace je pa itak pci vodil na svojem HT vodilu.
in ne deli bandwitha z memoryjem.
