Along with its latest MPC68 chipset, Nvidia are unveiling their nForce 680i LT SLI chipset motherboard which is targetted predominantly at hardcore gamers. The nForce 680i LT SLI chipset is reportedly US$50 cheaper than its slightly older sibling.

nForce 680i LT SLI reference boards will come with active cooling instead of heat-pipe design on 680i SLI reference board, a green PCB instead of a black PCB, DDR2-800 instead of DDR2-1200 SLI memory, 8 USB 2.0 ports instead of 10, one Gigabit Ethernet instead of two, two PCIe x16 slots instead of 3, and without all the neat stuff like LED POST codes, Power/Reset buttons and Speaker. NVIDIA mentioned that overclocking on 680i LT SLI won’t be as good as the 680i SLI but we believe the chipset is basically the same unless they have done some sort of a sorting on the chipsets.
