<i>Provided that NVIDIA can address those issues with nForce2 and given that we can trust their performance expectations for the chipset, VIA could finally face some reasonable competition in the Socket-A market. Let’s not forget that NVIDIA’s Hammer solution, codenamed CK8, will be a very close derivative of nForce2 and thus a successful nForce2 launch could translate into promising results with Hammer.</i>

<i>As with most of our PREviews, we have very little to go on when it comes to performance as we do not have a review board as of yet, although there are a few things we can say for certain.

Seeing as how it will more than likely be September by the time the board appears on the market, it will be interesting to see just how expensive those DDR400 sticks of memory are at that time and what quantities are available for sale. The quality of so-called DDR400 will most likely also vary greatly as well, which is another reason we're happy to see NVIDIA implementing the memory validation program. It'll certainly be a weight off the shoulders of many, as buying RAM you know will work is much better than buying RAM you hope will work.</i
