Tweaktown recently had a chance to look at the ASUS M2NPV-VM Motherboard
- designed to take on the Digital Home on the K8 front with AMD Live! platform. The motherboard is paired with nVidia's GeForce 6150 chipset, creating a feature packed setup. The test system consisted of an AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ (Socket AM2) and nVidia GeForce 7800GT chipset. They ran the system through a battery of scenarios, including Doom, Quake, and F.E.A.R. The final thoughts? "The ASUS M2NPV-VM satisfied all our basic requirements for a solid Digital Home/HTPC based motherboard."
