"With the nForce2, NVIDIA managed to create a kick-ass product for the desktop. It is only natural that they continue the fine tradition and create a chipset for the professional market. The nForce3 Pro promises a lot, and if these promises are fulfilled, NVIDIA has another winner on their hands. "

NForce 3 Ultra cancelled - the inquirer
"We've had reliable sources telling us that the Ultra is no more, although partners will still be able to buy NForce 3 250GB parts. However, we've had reports from some partners that they haven't been told anything by Nvidia, and are still shifting decent numbers of the Ultra part. Not everyone wants to move to PCI Express just yet, they say. "

ABIT Puts NVIDIA nForce3 250 Mainboards on Hold - X-bit labs
"ABIT, one of the leading makers of mainboards for overclockers and computer enthusiasts, may postpone or cancel its mainboards based on NVIDIA’s latest flavour of the nForce3 core-logic. The reason for the possible move may be certain stability issues with the nForce3 250 product."

12/11/03
nForce3 PCI bus not frequency-locked - Lost Circuits
"There are different ways to prove one way or the other, one way is the use of a Geiger card with the caveat that this PCI card may not function correctly since it is used internally within the system. Honestly, we don't believe that this is a strong possibility. However, another, fool proof way to find out is the use of a high frequency oscilloscope to probe the clock input signal directly at the PCI slot."

NVIDIA System Utility Preview - 3D Velocity
"Overall, this has the potential to be a valuable tool and a generally useful program, but until we see BIOS support for a bigger range of motherboards it is of only limited use. Let's hope we see some BIOS updates coming through soon!"

Nvidia defends its Nforce 3 150 chipset - the inquirer
"The next generation Nforce 3 250 Gb will be designed to use a 16b uplink and 16b downlink running at 800MHz effectively 1.6GHz DDR, necessary to provide more bandwidth for Gigabit Ethernet and its 256 MB in full duplex mode and four S-ATA drivers that need 600 MB/s. Why does the Nforce 3 sometimes ends up slower than the Via K8T800, then? Nvidia alleges that some review sites were using Via/MSI overclocked boards to test versus non overclocked Nforce 3 boards."

04/22/03 Einux announces nForce3 Pro for Opteron Workstations - AMDboard
"Einux Announces First Combination Opteron/nVidia nForce3 Professional Workstation for Ultimate Performance in a 64-Bit Workstation Einux's NeoStation64 Combines Power of NVIDIA nForce3 Professional Platform Processors With AMD's 64-Bit Opteron Technology"

04/22/03 VA-Technologies announce a full range of  64-bit capable FireStorm Visual workstations
"VA-Technologies announce a full range of 64 bit capable FireStorm Visual workstations based on AMD Opteron Processors and NVIDIA nForce3 platform"

04/22/03 nVidia nForce3 Professional Platform Adopted by Leading Workstation System Integrators
"nVidia announced that leading workstation system integrators are adopting the new nVidia nForce3 Professional platform technology for their upcoming professional workstation computing systems.  Optimized for nVidia Quadro graphics solutions, as well as the new 64-bit AMD Opteron processor, NVIDIA nForce3 Professional incorporates advanced platform technology solutions—including enterprise-class networking functionality, fault tolerant storage designs and a single unified driver architecture—that are paramount to providing a compatible, stable, and reliable platform for deployment in professional computing environments."
