Abit introduces the ABIT Engineered AMD product line
Abit today announced its further improved Engineered AMD product line, which, according to its own statements, is aimed primarily at gamers, enthusiasts and users who want to push their computer to the limit as much as possible.
With Abit would like to set itself apart from the competition with the following innovations:
- Front-Side-Bus : ABIT enables the front-side bus to be set up to 237 MHz - That is at least 17 MHz more clock than the next competitor can offer.
- 5 Bit Frequency ID (FID) : This overclocking-friendly FSB is made possible by the use of the ABIT 5-bit frequency ID (FID) enabled. This allows the FSB multiplier to be selected from 5 to 21. Other mainboard manufacturers, however, only use a 4-bit FID; However, this only allows FSB multipliers between 3 and 13.
- Voltage settings : ABIT has set itself the goal of offering more voltage settings than any other manufacturer. Voltages can be changed in the CPU, the DDR memory and the chipset. Abit guarantees that all the settings made available will also work.
- 3 phase converter : This is the reason for ABIT's guaranteed overclockability. This ABIT Engineered solution ensures that the processor can be supplied with more power (up to 75W) when it comes to overclocking it. This results in improved system stability even under the most intensive workloads. This should achieve even better overclocking values.
- ABIT CPU Hardware Thermal Protection : ABIT's CPU HTP (CPU Hardware Thermal Protection) technology for ABIT AT7-MAX2/KD7 and nForce 2 mainboards provides protection from processors burning out if the cooling system fails.
- ABIT Soft Menu : ABIT's AMD product line is specifically designed to allow theEnd user can tune his system to the max. The strongest aid is the ABIT SoftMenu, which is located directly in the BIOS and thus offers direct access to essential system parameters. This means that the overclocking capability is independent of the respective operating system and can be operated on any platform.
These features are used in three product lines. On the one hand, there is the AT7 Max2 , which Abit has clearly placed as a high-end board. The AT7 Max2 offers integrated components such as 6-channel audio, LAN, 3 Firewire slots, 10 USB ports, Serial ATA RAID and ABIT Serillel. You can read more about the AT7 Max2 here .
The NF7 Serie (NF7/S/M) should provide the customer with a solid multimedia platform. It is equipped with the nForce2 from Nvidia. The NF7 series is optionally available with Serial ATA150 RAID, Firewire and GF4 MX on-board graphics. You can find out more about the NF7 series here . But if Abit wants to target overclockers, the NF7 series should perhaps have drilled holes around the base so that, as an enthusiastic customer, you can also install water cooling or other large cooling devices without any problems. The boards of the KD7 series (KD7-S/G/B/RAID) are based on the KT400 from VIA. They are optionally available with Gigabit LAN, 10/100 LAN, Serial ATA150 RAID and ATA133 RAID. And if you still want to know something about the KD7 series, you should find out more directly from Abit .
