Bad news for many Abit board owners

As can be seen from Abit's FAQ, there appear to be problems with the AthlonXP support for many models in the popular KT7 series. The following boards are affected: Abit KT7/KT7-RAID/KT7E in all revisions and the KT7A and KT7A-RAID in revisions 1.0/1.1/1.3.

A BIOS update should also be available for these boards not be possible to support the AthlonXP correctly. According to Abit, they are not 'hardware compatible' with the new processors. But since the VIA KT133a chipset can support the AthlonXP according to VIA, it seems to be more due to the special design of the Abit boards, since at least no other manufacturer has issued a similar statement yet.
