NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra: Biostar's Performance Surprise

The TForce4 U 775 motherboard is based on the recently announced nForce4 Ultra SPP and nForce4 Ultra Intel Edition MCP chipsets. Our initial impression of the motherboard's performance was that of mediocrity and disappointment with a chipset that was designed to compete directly against the excellent Intel 945P. We were harsh in our opinion of the board's performance to Biostar and NVIDIA. In the end, our initial opinion was a mistake and it led to a path of discovery about the performance potential of this chipset and board.

Biostar along with NVIDIA had discovered issues with the original BIOS design and worked together in creating a highly optimized BIOS release that is at the center of the performance results generated by this board. While the performance is nothing less than astounding in certain benchmarks, it is also very average in others. The board has an almost "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" quality about it in configuration, performance, and options.
