In Quake 4 the story is slightly different, with the abit board pushing its way to the front of the queue, and not for the first time in our barrage of tests, either.
Foxconn’s board fares poorly, but we believe it’s a possibly a BIOS problem present when we tested the aibt. The Abit motherboard we will be looking at today is the KN9 Ultra.
Indeed, exactly the same performance as the other two boards with nForce series chipsets. Be warned, however, that you’ll need decent case cooling, lest the board may overheat.
In fact, it seems every connector on this board is placed near the edge, which is a good design choice by abit. ThursdayAugust 17, But of course they kn99. Click to find out more. What was the best tech product of ?
