- ABIT Press Release

ABIT have sent us through another press release today talking about what their much pimped µGuru second processor has over the competition such as MSI and ASUS who offer similar devices on their own motherboards.

Challengers for the throne are relentlessly clashing, introducing new technologies to hopefully turn the tide of battle to their favor. The skirmishes are many; the casualties are great. But throughout all of this, one contender stands alone. One contender has consistently stayed ahead of the curve, and with its newest weapon, is poised to achieve motherboard supremacy once and for all. The company is ABIT. The weapon is µGuru™.
