Abit AN7 Motherboard Review
Subject: Motherboards | March 24, 2004 - 08:57 PM | Geoff Baker
The Tech Report takes a look at the Abit AN7 and all the uGuru flash. Paired up against an A7N8X, the benchmarks are all here.
IT MAY NOT HAVE THE FLASH of its 64-bit brethren, but there's still
performance potential left in the Athlon XP. This point was certainly proven
by our recent look at overclocking the Athlon XP-M 2500+, in which we managed
2400MHz without much difficulty.
Of course, taking advantage of that potential requires the right equipment,
and that starts with the motherboard. In our Athlon XP-M article, we achieved
our greatest success using Abit's AN7 board. During the course of that test,
we decided that the AN7 was interesting enough to deserve a look of its own.
Wondering what caught our eye? Read on.
