In just a few weeks previous, there were about 4 different models of NVIDIA 680i SLI motherboards in the market – the reference boards used by EVGA, Inno3D, Biostar, etc, the IN9 32x MAX from abit, the GA-N680SLI-DQ6 from Gigabyte, the Striker Extreme and P5N32-E from ASUS. The latest addition to this list is the Foxconn N68S7AA-8EKRS2H , based on the same chipset but differently built from the Reference boards.
The box strikes a huge resemblance to the Foxconn AM2 NF590 SLI motherboard we’ve seen a while back.
A good-looking board, black colored PCB like the Reference board and dark orange coppertone for the heatsink coolers around the motherboard.
