Albatron K8SLI

The Taiwan-based Albatron could be considered a heavy player in the motherboard industry, as well as graphics cards for that matter, but how does their most recent AMD SLI adventure perform? Albatron's K8SLI packs in NVIDIA's nForce4 SLI Chipset combined with the innovative features as a Zero Jumper Design, Dual BIOS, and Watch Dog Timer, will this Socket 939 SLI offering be the next item on your shopping list? We have this motherboard here today to answer some of these questions.

PC Partner is a relative new comer to Phoronix but they have over 20 years experience in the industry with ISO9001 certification.

Hitting the bench today is PC Partner's RC410MS7-A82C, which is based upon the ATI RC410 + SB450 Chipset. However, do not put this item on your shopping list, as we share in the article, the retail motherboard will NOT be available for purchase by the general public due to recent corporate changes.

Abit AW8 BIOS v15

A new BIOS for the AW8 series has hit the Internet from the folks over at Abit and implemented in this latest revision is support for Intel's Presler and Cedar Mill processors among other notable improvements, while one of the major advancements is the belated support for DDR2-800. This DDR2-800 (1:2 CPU:DRAM) ability comes after some enthusiasts have accused Abit of blatant advertising attempts with its memory.

Tyan Tomcat K8E-SLI S2866

Based upon the K8E S2865, the K8E-SLI S2866 is Tyan's initial offering when it comes to NVIDIA Socket 939 SLI on the nForce PRO 2200 Chipset. Yes, that is right an nForce Professional 2200 Chipset implementation on a Socket 939 Athlon 64 system and not the nForce4. Presently Tyan has the K8WE (S2895), which is nForce Professional based, and is capable of running in SLI with the Opteron 200 series, but the K8E-SLI is their first time venturing into this new arena. With us today we have the K8E-SLI and we shall see just how well it fares in the world of Scalable Link Interface.

Abit AW8-MAX v1.0 (i955X)

Back in August of this year, we had reviewed the Abit AW8 motherboard, which is based upon Intel's i955X Chipset, and overall we were much impressed by its abilities on not only the performance front, but also the Linux compatibility and build-quality we have come to expect from the engineers over at Abit. At hand today, we have the Abit AW8-MAX, which packs in a few tweaks and additions than what was built into the AW8 vanilla.
