Introduction

 

The Taiwanese motherboard manufacturer known as ABIT are well known for their great line of Intel and AMD motherboards. ABIT were among the first companies to introduce software controlled overclocking options of our processors through the BIOS; this was called Softmenu.

 

It has only been recently that ABIT jumped into the multimedia market with their range of Siluro brand video cards. ABit's first success was based on the original nVidia Riva TNT2 Ultra graphics chipset and had 32MB of SGRAM. However, this little beauty still fell behind ASUS and Diamond in overclockability and overall performance. ABIT then released the Siluro GF256. This new card was based on the nVidia GeForce DDR chipset and used 32MB of DDR SDRAM. This card was a hit, with its overclockability and overall performance beating most of the competition. When the nVidia GeForce2 GTS GPU was introduced, ABIT took its time with the release of their next card, titled the Siluro GF2 GTS.

 

With the release of the value market GF2 chipset titled the MX series, ABIT immediately launched its value market card; the Siluro GF2 MX. This card used the original GF2MX GPU and 32MB of SDR SDRAM. Due to ATi releasing the G450 chipset and the introduction of the Kryo II chipset, nVidia needed to release a faster yet cheaper chipset to compete and eliminate the competition. So nVidia took the GF2MX chipset and re-designed them into two models; the GF2-MX200 and GF2-MX400. Today, ABIT has been kind enough to supply us with one of their latest creations in the Graphics world; the ABIT Siluro GF2 MX400.
