Abit announced late last night that they were releasing a Fatal1ty branded X800 XL 512 MB video card that features vGuru options. For those unfamiliar, vGuru is much like uGuru, only for video cards instead of motherboards, and allows users to overclock their video cards much more easily.
Also announced last night, were two Abit motherboards supporting SLI technology. The AN8 SLI uses the nForce4 SLI AMD Edition chipset and the NI8 SLI uses the nForce4 SLI Intel Edition chipset, both with the Falat1ty branding as well.
Both the Fatal1ty A8 SLI and Fatal1ty NI8 SLI come fully equipped with the latest technologies to help gamers turn up their game. The Fatal1ty AN8 SLI begins with the NVIDIAÂ® nForce4 SLI chipset, which features support for 939-pin AMDÂ® Athlon™ 64/64FX CPUs, a 2GHz system bus with Hyper Transport™ technology, and up to 4GB of DDR 400 memory. Included with the Fatal1ty AN8 SLI is the ABIT Engineered ÂµGuru Panel™ front panel accessory. The ÂµGuru Panel conveniently slides into one of your PC's spare drive bays, and interacts with ABIT's ÂµGuru Technology to provide a bevy of features to take your gaming rig to the next level. The large backlit LCD display gives you up-to-date system information including fan speeds, temperatures and voltages, and even notifies you if you receive a new e-mail or MSN message. Front-mounted USB, Firewire, headphone, and microphone ports make it easy to get set up at your next LAN party. Overclock your system for maximum performance without having to quit your game, and if there's ever a problem, clear your BIOS settings with the specially-designed CMOS reset button. The ÂµGuru Panel - another ABIT Engineered innovation to keep you at the top of your game!
