The once dominant motherboard manufacturer abit has just launched a new enthusiast oriented motherboard based on Intel's P35 chipset, this dubbed the IP35P OverSpeed Edition.
The board is ready to take the next generation of 45nm processors from Intel with up to 1333 FSB support, and in OC mode it supports DDR2 memory up to 1066 MHz. On the downside there's only one PCIe x16 slot, two PCIe x1 slots and three legacy PCI, so short of buying a single dual-GPU graphics card (3870 X2 etc.) there'll be no Crossfire happening on this offering.
The other oddity is that for an apparent overclockers board, abit's choice not to move to solid state capacitors is somewhat alarming by todays standards.
For a full description of the board's feature-set, grab the official PR here folks.
