- Abit's Fatal1ty AN8 motherboard

ABIT's latest enthusiast motherboard to be sold under the "Fatal1ty" label is one which finally heads into AMD territory, make welcome for ABIT's classy Fatal1ty AN8 motherboard where uGuru meets nForce4 Ultra. The TechReport get their mits on this puppy for some quality playtime today, proving it 'aint all too shabby for the most part, but I have to say... erm, where's our SLI variant Mr. ABIT?


ABIT FIRST INTRODUCED its Fatal1ty-branded motherboard line with the Intel 925XE-based Fatal1ty AA8XE. Given the Pentium 4 platform's comparably poor gaming performance, that probably wasn't the greatest idea. After all, the Fatal1ty brand squarely targets gamers and enthusiasts who know better than to covet Pentium 4 motherboards.


It seems that Abit now knows better, too. They've bolstered the Fatal1ty lineup with the Fatal1ty AN8 motherboard for Athlon 64 processors. With a 939-pin socket, nForce4 Ultra chipset, temperature-controlled OTES cooling, and a loaded uGuru-powered BIOS, the Fatal1ty AN8 could be the ultimate Athlon 64 platform for gamers, overclockers, and enthusiasts. Read on to see if it was worth the wait.
