Abit AT7 Motherboard Review - Benchmarking

The motherboard industry is all about innovation. Due to the fact that most boards that are based on the same chipset perform virtually identically, it is up to the manufacturer to include something that makes their board stand out from the rest. Abit have gone along way to improve innovation with their release of their MAX series of motherboards, which are legacy free. Abit's first MAX motherboard is their AT7 which is based on the VIA KT333 chipset for the Athlon platform. Follow Asher "Acid" Moses as he tells us if all this innovation is worth it, maybe it will be something we will see in the near future from other manufacturers, or maybe it isn't.
