Board basics at a glance. This means that the power supply cable must be draped directly over the processor and heatsink. Here is a quick look at the SD and what it can deliver.
From just looking at the SDit would be difficult to pick it out of a line-up of other Socket motherboards. While clearance issues with the ATX power cable might be obvious whether it is installed or not, there are many problems that may only become apparent when installed.
While this is an annoyance on any motherboard for sure, the problem is further compounded by the size of Socket Pentium4 heatsinks. ABIT has been credited with being one of the first companies to pioneer “overclocker friendly” motherboards as far back as their LX chipset based boards. All trademarks used are properties of their respective owners.
The Northbridge and Southbridge transfers, although theoretically two times as fast as abih VIA P4XA and Intel chipsets, are still limited by hard drive performance. You can get the “full specs” from ABIT:. What used to be unheard of, are features we now take for granted. World of Warships Enters Open Beta! ABIT, along with other companies that followed suit, actually changed the way most companies look at performance and the overclocking community in general.
Had it not been for companies like ABIT taking the road less traveled, we could very well be stuck with OEM style boards that offer no outside performance adjustments.
While the board does have a rather clean layout, there are a few things that immediately stand out. MondayMarch 25, Author: Currently MuTIOL’s main advantage is lower latency operation achieved through its unique bi-directional bus.
There’s no colored PCB or super shiny northbridge heatsinks.
This means the full potential of this technology is still far from being effectively utilized. How is that possible? Funny that just a few short years ago, these were not seen as options that would “last” when they were introduced.
The Pentium 4 mainboards have been getting a lot of play lately and we have seen phenomenal overclocks on SiS chipset boards. They also pioneered Vcore voltage selection and were the only company brave enough to give this feature to the enthusiasts for quite a while. This unique “two way” bus, while greatly reducing latency, also allows all southbridge components to share the bus at the same time.
ABITcertainly not a company that is new to the PC Industry, has spent much of its long career at the forefront of leading edge technology. Site design and front-end production by mike kane. This gives you a highlight of the board’s features.
Here is a brief explanation from SiS:.
