ABIT LAUNCHES AW9D SERIES

Intel 975X Chipset motherboards built for Core 2 Duo and beyond

August 16th , 2006 - Today Universal abit launched their much anticipated AW9D and AW9D-MAX motherboards based on the Intel 975X chipset. There has been much anticipation in the industry for this series and as far as looks go, these boards are built to please. The benchmarking has been exceptional in typical abit style and our tweakability and overclocking features have exceeded even our own expectations:

Mark, a bright new star in the abit engineering department, says: "I really like abit's uGuru overclocking features on this board and playing with the engineering samples I've managed to OC to 470 FSB using a 6800XE Core 2 Duo. The BIOS has plenty of options for adjusting FSB, tweaking voltages and controlling stability. It's truly an amazing overclocking motherboard ... I love it!"
