After delivering a less-than-inspiring nForce 780i SLI chipset last year, Nvidia has finally followed up with its true next-generation core logic in the 790 SLI Ultra. An all-new north bridge lies at the heart of this latest nForce chipset, complete with a DDR3 memory controller that not only boasts significantly lower latencies than its rivals, but also supports memory speeds all the way up to 2000MHz…

Yet the nForce 790 SLI Ultra still manages to unseat Intel’s X48 Express from its throne as the reigning uber-high-end chipset thanks to two key features. The first and most obvious is support for SLI?a feature that Nvidia continues to deny its chipset competitors. With the new GeForce 9800 GX2 ready for effective four-way SLI configurations, the 790i SLI will be able to play host to what should be the highest performance graphics configuration on the market…

Obviously, top-of-the-line chipsets like the Ultra are less concerned with value and more about winning bragging rights in a technical arms race. In the arms race between Core 2 chipsets, the nForce 790i SLI Ultra definitely leads.
