At DAT Computers, we spotted 2 new DFI AMD 64 based motherboards. Being a
cheaper alternative to the award winning Lanparty series, the new DFI Infinity
nF4 Ultra
and the DFI Infinity nF4 SLi comes with less fanciful options.
Straight from the box, the packaging is less extravagant. The board itself does
not come with UV reactive slots and connectors. But instead, it comes with a
very simple design, in both the board color, and the feature set. It will be
interesting to see how these 2 boards fare against their better looking (and
more expensive) Lanparty brothers. Priced at $ 185 for the Ultra version, and
$ 245
for the SLi version, it’s one of the cheaper boards available in Sim Lim
Square.

Unlike the brown SLi bridge with the Lanparty emblem found on
the Lanparty SLi-D or the SLi-DR, these boards comes with such generic green
bridges.
