So i suppose the answer is if you need ultra high speed across a local network, use the marvell, if you use suspend to ram use the nvidia. At least one PCI slot must usually be sacrificed to escape the evils of onboard audio, but that might not be necessary on the K8N Neo. Do I need to re-associate INF files with something else? I use the nvidia one. That’s definitely more expansion room than we’ve seen on many other Athlon64 motherboards!

This chip is capable of handling bit audio streams at high sampling rates but lacks the hardware necessary to accelerate positional 3D audio.

On a more serio It would have been nice to get at least one, though. poatinum

I have 1 Marvell port and one Nvidia port. The Marvel one seems to have a bit better download speed, but the Nvidia one has better upload speed at least in my tests. Joined May Location N. Seems wrong to me. About us Privacy policy Mailing list Mobile. The kn8 yellow nine pin connectors at the bottom right hand corner of the motherboard jsi the USB headers and MSI also colour coordinates these with the USB bracket that’s included.

Although, I could just go to the source at Marvell. Here is a screenshot with my Marvell port disabled.

Due to network efficiency it really won’t make that much of a difference between the two. Both are good solutions and should be problem free.


We’ve decided to go ahead and publish this review for your reading pleasure, in part because variants of this design, like the non-SLI K8N Neo4 Platinum, are still widely available for purchase. I’ve been told at numerous forums to stay away from those Windows Updates for drivers.

These companies haven’t started using case windows, LED fans or cold cathodes yet, but their boxes sure look a lot better than they used to.
