Default ATI RD600 Chipset-DFI LANParty UT ICFX3200 T2R/G First Look

Since the second half year of 2006, due to Core 2 Duo, Intel platform
becomes the focus in enthusiast group again. Besides 975X chipset,
Intel also launched P965 chipset to enhance its product line.
On the other hand, NVIDIA released NF590 Intel edition this year.
But the performance and OC ability of it is not as good as prospect.
Then, they launched the brand new 6 series to backup the Intel platform
At this moment, except RD580 for AM2, ATI still has a “Final solution” for Intel platform~RD600(ICFX3200)
This time, I have DFI’s LANParty UT ICFX3200 T2R/G in hand.
The board adopts ATI’s RD600; also this is a real high-end LP product of DFI after a long time.
The package of the board is totally different from the past one,
The cartoon illustration is unique style of LANParty product.
I think the red color is represent ATI’s logo color.


The accessories from the package;
Wow, super-thick user menu, driver disc, IO shield and cables…



DFI LANParty UT ICFX3200 T2R/G
Motherboard appearance



A view of board’s lower left: a built-in debug light, chip of Dual gigabit LAN,
a future standard of VGA solution~ 3 slots of PCIe, and 3 traditional PCI


A view of board’s lower right:
Built-in Power/ Reset onboard button,
Southbridge SB600 supports 4 SATAII ports, and RAID 0/1, 0+1 compatible
Promise PDC40719 RAID chip, also supports 4 SATAII ports, RAID 0/ 1/ 0+1, 5 compatible


A view of board’s upper right:
4 x DIMM for memory,
24 pin power plug and a IDE device.


A view of board’s upper left:
6 phase digital PWM, more stable power supply
and a better space-saving for a huge-size CPU cooling fan.



I/O components


The temperature of ATI chipset is lower than Intel/ NVIDIA,
Due to North bridge uses a LP exclusive heat sink


A fancy LANParty case modding sticker, and a quick installation guide.


A supreme High-end/ OC motherboard, should work with a supreme high performance DDRII memory:
CORSAIR Dominator TWIN2x2048-8888C4DF


A cute pinky “starting screen”

ATI RD600 running the PI this program is slower with other chip but running
other test program is same with other chips.
Other performance and over clock test still not finished yet. Windwithme will
go out two days for idea of ideal. The final test will publish on next week. Thanks for your support.

Not bad for an unmodded board and with a 4 Mb chip. Bad axe topped around 440 Mhz

Looks good Windwithme. Chipset getting hot due to the fact its passively cooled? Crazy BIOS though, it almost puts me off all of those options. I wouldn't know where to start.

Thanks for this windwithme.

P965 does a little better still, but RD600 looks promising indeed. Asynchronous Ram tuning is "excellent"
