    DFI® Unleashes the New Revision B LANParty® Motherboards To Delver The Ultimate LAN Gaming Experience



    - Next Generation UV reactive LANParty NFII Ultra B and LANParty PRO875B combine amazing feature sets and the latest CMOS Reloaded technology to present the utmost price/performance bundles -





    Hayward, CA (November 4, 2003) - DFI, a worldwide leader in mainstream and performance desktop motherboard solutions, today launched its latest revisions to the unique LANParty line of motherboards - LANParty NFII Ultra B and LANParty PRO875B. The new LANParty NFII Ultra B for the AMD® platform combines popular features from the previous version while incorporating many performance integrations making it a LAN gamer's dream motherboard. The new LANParty PRO875B for the Intel® platform supports the latest Intel Pentium® 4 3.20 GHz processor Extreme Edition and the CMOS Reloaded technology to deliver one unmatchable gaming platform.



    Blazing Fast UV Green LANParty NFII Ultra B


    Similar to the previous design, the LANParty NFII Ultra B takes full advantage of the nForce2 Ultra 400/MCP-T chipset architecture, and is optimized for dual channel DDR400 memory and 8X AGP. Designed with the most discerning gamers in mind, Revision B LANParty features the new dual Gigabit LAN and 10/100 Ethernet for desired network reliability, extra space around the AGP slot to accommodate today's new card design, additional south bridge heat sink to maximize cooling, mounting holes around the CPU socket for water cooling, and the latest Silicon Image 4-channel Serial ATA. LANParty NFII Ultra B is the first in the series to offer support for 4-channel Serial ATA and Serial ATA RAID (0,1,0+1) to enable a compact system design with faster transfer rate. Other integrated features include 8 USB 2.0 ports, 4 IEEE 1394 Firewire ports, and 6-channel audio with SPDIF in/out to complete the offering.



    For the overclockers and the power users, LANParty NFII Ultra B features CMOS Reloaded technology with 2 sets of CMOS configurations under each BIOS setting. With CMOS Reloaded, for the first time the users can now save the overclocked settings without having to record manually, customize by naming each CMOS configuration, and load the various CMOS configurations using hot keys on the keyboard. This DFI patented technology automates overclocking and allows each CMOS configuration to be saved with a different operating system, thus making today's PCs truly versatile. Further to make it the ultimate nForce2 enthusiasts' motherboard, improvements were made to its overclockability. First in the market, LANParty NFII Ultra B features DRAM voltage from 2.6V to 3.3V (0.1V step), complete CPU ratio control from 5X to 22X and chipset voltage from 1.6V to 1.9V. Additional DRAM timing control was also implemented to enable refresh cycle time control, row cycle time control, RAS-to-CAS write delay time control, SuperBypass control, and DIMM driving strength and signal slew rate control. Tested with the latest AMD AthlonXP 3200+ processor, ATI Radeon 9800 PRO video card and 512MB PC4000 memory, this revision delivers an unsurpassable 3Dmark2001 score of 18915.







    "Being an enthusiast myself, I am constantly in the quest to make the perfect motherboards for the most demanding games and applications," said Oskar Wu, head of the Extreme Gaming MB Group at DFI. "Based on our first generation LANParty NFII Ultra motherboard and feedback from user groups, I made several changes to both its hardware and software design. The new revision B features the most flexible overclocking capability in the market and incorporates invaluable features to give LANParty based PCs a serious performance boost to own the LAN."



    LANParty PRO875B For Extreme Gaming


    For the Intel lovers, the LANParty PRO875B provides high-end features the power users have become accustomed to. Based on the Intel i875P/ICH5R chipset, this motherboard supports the latest dual channel DDR400 memory up to 4 MB, 8X AGP, and Performance Acceleration Technology (PAT) for advance computing. Broadband connection is enabled by the Intel CSA (Communications Streaming Architecture) Gigabit LAN with direct access to system memory to offer up to double the data transfer rate. In addition to the DFI proprietary RAID 1.5, this revision B motherboard also offers Serial ATA RAID for slim system design. A new feature added to this release is the CMOS Reloaded technology to facilitate the most flexible overclocking on the Intel platform. Similar to the AMD based NFII Ultra B, LANParty PRO875B will offer 2 sets of CMOS settings and future expansion capability through BIOS updates. When coupled with the latest Intel Pentium 4 processor Extreme Edition, this ultimate combination enhances visual realism for gamers and adds additional processing power with its larger cache and HyperThreading technology.

    Can the NFII ULTRA B handle an Athlon XP 1800+? or is the cpu too slow for it?

    I just got one for my birthday, they are awesome, this thing is amazing. You can update the bios right from windows!!! I wish this type of motherboard came out a year or two ago it would have made everyones lives easier. Anyhow, i give it an A++ compared to my old SOYO K7V-Dragon Plus, this thing blows it out of the water.

    You can overclock without doing anything physical to the CPU. Maybe this is possible on otherboards but the change from what i had to now is pretty great.

    Plus, the UV plastic inside makes it look great through my window!
