Socket 939: Motherboard FeaturesThe best way to compare features of the 939 chipsets is to compare them in our reviews at:
VIA K8T800 PRO: PCI/AGP Lock and 1000 HyperTransport for Athlon 64
nForce3-250 - Part 2: Taking Athlon 64 to the Next Level

Several motherboards were available at the launch of 939, including the Socket 939 Reference Boards from both VIA and nVidia. At the very last minute, two new boards showed up, both manufactured by MSI, and both very close to final production products for MSI. Since we were interested in comparing the performance of nVidia and VIA on Socket 939 processors, these two MSI boards made the perfect test platform.
