Damn, I feel important just reading a Royal motherboard review! The board reviewed here is based on Intel's 955X chipset that supports dual core processors as well as the latest single core products. l
Regarding the 8I955X-Royal, Gigabyte certainly has a board that's big on features and great on stability. We thought that the performance was a bit lacking in some areas and overclocking wasn't as great as we've experienced with other boards in the past.

I am sure many of you remember the trouble that Abit found itself in financially when they came under investigation by the Taiwan version of the SEC, but now things seem to be looking up for the motherboard manufacturer. A new investor in the form of the CEO of the largest transportation group in Taiwan, has put in enough of of his own money to become a majority share holder. Now, I don't know what affect this is going to have on the company in general, their product lines or anything, but we'll be meeting with them extensivel
