A new board enters the market: DAAMIT - Page 3

post #21 of 36
A person's opinion of a motherboard is basically an expression of personal taste. You should note the truism: "There is no accounting for taste." The opinion of anyone about motherboards is limited to their personal experience with motherboards, and to a lesser extent to reviews and posts that they have read.

Opinons offered without stated reasons for the conclusion of the poster might be given less weight than an opinion which is well reasoned, well written, and backed up with facts and links to supporting information. With such information and links people can then choose whether they want to seek out that information and educate themselves.

Is it better to ask for supporting information for an opinion, rather than getting emotional about it?

I had a DFI intel 875 board and it was great(see my sig for 4.4 ghz p4 oc). I agree the 9xx dfi chipsets haven't been winners but neither was a previous 9xx chip. DFI seemed to focus heavily on amd because at the time thats what everyone wants and thats where the power was. Now with the explosion of core 2 duo they might just shape up their act a little

Nah, I think it's because of the pure simple fact that ASUS has always been a better board manufacturer than they actually are.

It's been proven time and time again that in every benchmark performance and price wise, ASUS were/are/will be the best.

I remember when the P5W-DH Deluxe came out, $269, then DFI Infinity board was $299, yet to this date which is the best out of the two? ------Exactly my point!

When it comes to opinions, they are not "just" opinions but simple facts that remain and can't be overlooked, after all, DFI's record for poor support didn't start yesterday and it's sad that not a lot of people know that, rather than believing that "if it's good for the XX, it's good for YY".

That's why I will also never buy an nForce chipset for an Intel CPU. 'Cause I know better.

Only the DFI isn't out yet so you can't really prove it will be bad or worse then an asus. Not syaing your wrong but......

There's no need for me to have used the board, I already know what the outcome is going to be.......I predicted the same for the 680i and people loves to think otherwise but just in case, here is something that you can enjoy reading:

Quote:
We witnessed very good performance results from the shipping 12/01 BIOS but we did run into a few issues such as the USB keyboard issue during RAID setup (sometimes it worked, other times not), the PC Health section in the BIOS would lock up occasionally depending upon the fans utilized, and we could not always depend on getting an additional couple of percent improvement in memory performance when setting the burst rate to 8 when dropping our latency timings. We have seen worse shipping BIOS releases and even worse mature production BIOS releases, but currently we are totally blown away by the beta 12/07 BIOS when it comes to extracting the best possible performance from this motherboard. However, with the new options comes a penalty: we just could not get into the BIOS during a warm reboot. We had to shutdown and clear the CMOS or cold reboot the board at least three times to even have a chance at entering the BIOS. Fortunately, DFI includes their CMOS reloaded program so our basic profiles are saved for quick retrieval. DFI is working around the clock to address these issues and others so we feel very confident in the future of this motherboard regarding technical support.

Anymore questions?

well this is just MY OPINION but with amd i have had both lots of asus and dfi boards and the dfi boards only had one benefit and that was voltage options, to get the same voltage out of a asus i had to volt modd it but when it came to stability and overclocking and performance the asus was jsut as good and lots of times better then the dfi and since i volt modded my asus boards i was aable to achieve the same oc as i did with the dfi,

support wise the only thing dfi has is dfistreet which in itself is pretty good but then again use a dfi and you will realize why they need a forum devoted to helping overclock there boards and then you have to get use to the fact thaqt they wont work with jsut any psu or ram

personally i am sure that dfi will make a pretty good product and i look forward to more reviews but i would still recomend asus over dfi for intel's at this time until proven that i am wrong then i will change my opinion

Nasgul is a very angry person if he is crossed, apparently...

All the same, he is right in that the P5B Deluxe is a proven amazing overclocker, and the DFI isn't even out yet. However, the RD600 CHIPSET is not the huge jump people expect, but the RD600 CARDS look like they will be better than the 8800s (at least in theory, they aren't released either, so the verdict is out)

All things considered, I think it's in everyone's best interest to wait about a year for things to settle down a bit, and then make the real long term decisions, like how to invest thousands of dollars.
