Abit launches IGP motherboard for Socket AM2
Abit is best known for its enthusiast motherboards, but the company also produces a number of budget-oriented offerings with integrated graphics. This product range has now been expanded with a new motherboard for AMD's Socket AM2 processors that features Nvidia's GeForce 6150 integrated graphics and nForce 430 core logic combo.
The new NF-M2 nView is one of only a small number of Socket AM2 motherboards to include a DVI display port along with its integrated graphics. Also unusually for an IGP board, it has heat pipe-based chipset cooling that takes care of both the integrated graphics chip and the processor's power regulation circuitry. The NF-M2 nView's feature set otherwise includes dual-monitor support, Gigabit Ethernet, FireWire, and four 300MB/s Serial ATA ports.
