Abit launches a new Intel P965 board
A new high-end model has joined
Abit's line of motherboards based on Intel's P965 Express chipset. Named AB9 QuadGT
, the board packs a host of enthusiast-friendly features including dual PCI Express x16 slots with ATI CrossFire support (in a x16/x4 lane configuration,) 100% solid-state capacitors, a digital processor voltage controller, onboard on/off switches, an external "clear CMOS" switch, Abit's trademark μGuru set of tweaking and hardware monitoring tools, and heat pipe-based chipset and power regulation circuitry cooling. Abit claims the AB9 QuadGT has been "specifically engineered" for Intel's quad-core processors, too—hence the name. Although Abit went overboard with Serial ATA connectivity on the cheaper AB9 Pro
, the new AB9 QuadGT "only" has six internal Serial ATA ports and two external ones.
