The CEO of Albatron was one of the key players at Gigabyte as they grew from OEM supplier to one of the four largest motherboard makers in the world. That expertise and attention has now been focused on Albatron. While the Albatron name is barely in its second year of existence, the motherboards and video cards have already earned a reputation as solid products built with the computer enthusiast in mind.
In our testing of the recent nVidia nForce2 Ultra 400 and VIA KT600 chipsets, we have seen that nForce2 has not lost the Athlon performance crown. VIA’s excellent KT600 chipset wins the features war, but nVidia has clearly remained the performance champion for now. In every benchmark series we run with Athlon, nVidia boards remain grouped ahead of the KT600 boards.
So, when we heard that Albatron had developed an enthusiast level nForce2 Ultra 400 board, we were anxious to take a look. Could the combination of the best-performing nForce2 Ultra 400 chipset with Albatron’s attention to the Computer Enthusiast “wish-list” produce the best nForce2 Ultra 400 board on the market?
