Built to deliver breathtaking performances, the ABIT AW8D motherboard is intended for systems running Intel Pentium 4 LGA775 CPUs at 1066/800MHz FSB. Supporting Intel Pentium D and Pentium EE processors with Hyper-Threading Technology, the proprietary µGuru software offers unparalleled authority, convenience, and control over your PC; with the ABIT SilentOTES system, heat is drained from the back panel with ease. This blazing motherboard takes the Intel 975X chipset to the absolute peak of performance without so much as breaking a sweat, on it or you.
The motherboard has a Socket 775 design and the Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) style socket that enables easy installation and upgrades of your system. The Intel 975X Northbridge and ICH7R Southbridge chipset complete the board. A total capacity of up to 8GB of DDR2 RAM can be installed on the system through four 240-pin DIMM sockets. Shocking sound is delivered via the Dolby Master Studio Support and 8-channel AudioMAX output. This is an outstanding, full-featured board with all the "toys" you'll need to make it do anything you want!
Cutting-edge Intel 975X+ICH7R Chipset Combination Supporting Intel's latest dual-core processors, the Intel 975X Express Chipset represents the pinnacle of Intel's desktop performance platforms. The 975X also features advanced 2x8 graphics card support, Intel Memory Pipeline Technology (MPT) and up to 8GB memory with ECC support. The ICH7R provides HD Audio support and SATA 3Gb/s ports with Intel Matrix Storage Technology support.
ATI CrossFire Multi-GPU Technology Support The ABIT AW8D incorporates full support for ATI CrossFire technology – its dual PCI Express x16 slots can be configured to dual x8 mode for ATI CrossFire mode, with simple paddle-less mode switching.
Silent OTES Cooling The Silent OTES cooling solution keeps the chipset and MOSFETs cool with the latest heatpipe technology. Heatpipes do without an active fan, cutting down on noise pollution from your case and enhancing the stability of components on your motherboard.
ABIT µGuru Technology Exclusive ABIT-Engineered motherboard technology is designed for unprecedented power, convenience and control over your PC. µGuru enables end-users to reach a higher state of hardware awareness and enlightenment, providing users the perfect environment with which to maximize system performance and stability.
Dual SATA RAID The onboard Silicon Image Sil3132 and the ICH7R Southbridge provide a great solution to your RAID requirements. The Southbridge supports RAID 0/1/0+1/5 on 4 SATA 3Gb/s ports, and the PCIe Silicon Image Sil3132 controller offers 2 additional SATA 3Gb/s interfaces allowing RAID 0 and RAID 1.
Dual PCI Express-based Gigabit Ethernet The onboard Gigabit Ethernet controllers feature fully integrated Gigabit Ethernet Media Access Control (MAC) and Physical-Layer (PHY) functions. Its host bus utilizes the PCIe architecture designed for high-performance and low-memory latency to ensure full Gigabit network bandwidth.
