After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Foxconn Winfast NFPIK8AA

    Multi-GPU Scorecard
    Index:  2.75
    Optimized: 2x
    Max Support: 2x
    The Winfast NFPIK8AA is a very unique motherboard that really pushed motherboard designs for the time.  In the early days of nVidia SLI all of the consumer level motherboards were limited to only 8x of PCI Express bandwidth per card.  Due to chipset limiations the only way to overcome this was to use more than one nForce chipset on a single board.
    There are a total of five PCI Express slots on this board, two of which can support full length video cards.  Slots two and four both are hardwired to a full 16x of bandwidth but are limited to the 1.0 specification.  The slot layout indicates a dual card optimization with a total of two cards supported.
