- ABit Takes uGuru a step further

Today ABIT launched their uGuru panel which is designed to fit neatly into a vacant 5.25" bay at the front of your case. The unit extends upon the usual uGuru feature-set offering a whole stack of useful features and abilities. This thing can not only monitor your incoming e-mails etc. as you game away, but allows you to overclock on the fly, reset your CMOS, and monitor CPU speed/temps/current time/etc. with the addition of a 6cm x 3.4cm LCD screen. However, compatible motherboards are limited to the ABIT Fatal1ty AN8 and AN8 SLI at this point in time. Full details reside within ABIT's official PR folks.


May 13, 2005 - Today ABIT is pleased to announce its latest innovation, the Guru Panel. A feature rich device designed to give gamers rapid and unrestricted access to all the features they are ever likely to require during the heat of battle. Everything from hardware monitoring to overclocking can be controlled through this module without the need to enter the main screen. There's even an option to clear the CMOS memory should the need arise.


The Guru Panel is much more than a multimedia device, it's a gamer's best friend. While immersed in their favourite game, the Guru Panel is hard at work monitoring hardware, looking out for new emails, generally ensuring gamers stay up to date with what's going on around them.
