The release of nForce4 SLI Intel Edition motherboards brings up an interesting question. Which platform is the better of the two for high-end gaming? There have been rumors floating around the web for several months that nVidia's nForce4 SLI Intel Edition was not performing up to par compared to the original nForce4 SLI for AMD. We were curious to see if these rumors have any merit to them. To settle this issue, we grabbed the fastest single-core gaming processors available from both Intel (3.73 GHz Extreme Edition) and AMD (Athlon64 FX-55) and placed them in their respective nForce4 SLI platforms of choice. In addition, we were able to get our hands on two brand-spanking-new GeForce 6800 Ultra PCI Express cards with 512 MB of memory, truly allowing for the most impressive SLI configurations on the planet today.
