Soltek SL-915GPro-FGR

..:: Introduction ::..

It’s been quite a while since we’ve done two things, the first being posting a review, which I have to say I’m sorry for. While working on this review, I had a defective graphics card which caused all sorts of troubles and backups. Alas, the issue has now been fixed. The second thing is take a look at a product from Soltek. Not all that long ago, Soltek made an attempt at breaking into the North American market, but the operating costs here ended up leaving them with no choice but to close up shop and handle things directly from ole’ Taiwan. Soltek has pumped out some impressive products over the past few years, arising from an OEM quality manufacturer to one that overclockers and enthusiasts could rely on for stability, speed, and performance. Today, we’ll see if this trend continues with Soltek’s i915G offering, the SL-915GPro-FGR. Will this board shine above the rest, or simply fade into the background? Read on to find out!
