Abit AN8-32X (nForce SLIx16) Motherboard

CPU3D
16 May 2006
  • Summary: Abit knows the enthusiast market, and they have come up with a pretty good motherboard. The performance is good and the stability is pretty rock solid. I particularly like the red LEDs located along the side of the motherboard, and also the diagnostic LED which shows error codes if overclocking fails. The Abit AN8-32X is packed with features, enough to grab anyone's attention, but the main feature of this motherboard is the newer and faster x16 SLI support.

Abit AN8 32X - nForce 4 SLI X16

HotHardware
25 April 2006
  • Excerpt: For the last year, Abit's biggest challenge has been conquering itself. Struggling with a combination of internal financial woes, corporate investigations, and a generally un-exciting product lineup, there is no doubt that the once mighty Abit has sagged as of late. Once considered a tier one motherboard maker with a keen ear to the needs of the enthusiast, Abit has lost a lot of their exciting customer base to Asus and DFI, whose product lines have simply been...
  • Pros: Silent Cooling For Hot Chipset, Two Dedicated PCI Express x16 Slots, Excellent Monitoring and Fan Speed Controls, Lower Price Compared To Other nForce4 SLI X16 Boards
  • Cons: Bad Placement of +12V ATX and SLI Power Connectors, Bad Placement of Floppy Connector, Stability Issues with uGuru Software Suite, Lacks "Killer Feature" To Distinguish Itself

ABIT AN8 32X review

IT-review.net
19 April 2006
  • Excerpt: When first introduced, nForce4 had 20 PCExpress lanes which was enough for one x16 slot or two x8 slots. At the time that was more than enough for top notch graphics cards. But things have change, the horse power of today GPUs has doubled and running those at a x8 slot resulted in losing performance. To patch things up nVidia came up with a solution that supports two x16 lanes. What was cool about nForce4 was the fact that it wasn?

  • Excerpt: It has been quite some time since ABIT made a big announcement in the IT world apart from its financial troubles in 2005, which made plenty of noise for them but not in the way they wanted. With ABIT now out of the dark place it managed to fall into, they are back to doing what they do best, making quality motherboards for the enthusiast market.

  • Conclusion: The ABIT AN8 32X with its orange colored PCB and its quality of construction, comes in a rather good retail package with all appropriate cables and manuals included. Dual X16 PCI-Express and SLI support, Gigabit LAN, 7.1 CH Audio with two optical/digital connections, double SATA RAID, Dual Channel, are only some of the board's features. Maybe a WireLess LAN or a second onboard LAN are something we would like to see.
  • Pros: Dual X16 SLI support, Great features, Good Retail Package, Very Good performance, Monitor utility from within Windows, Very good motherboard overclocking capabilities
  • Cons: No Wireless or Second Lan

  • Conclusion: AN8 32X potwierdził, iż firma Abit znajduje się w ścisłej czołówce jeżeli chodzi o jakość wytwarzanych produktów. Testowany model prezentował się niezwykle atrakcyjnie zarówno pod względem wizualnym, jak i w codziennym użytkowaniu. System OTES zastosowany przez tajwańskich inżynierów spisywał się znakomicie, zapewniając ciszę i niską temperaturę chłodzonych układów.

ABIT AN8 32X

pcmag.ru
18 April 2006
  • Summary: Оценивая продемонстрированные AN8 32X результаты, отметим лучшую сумму баллов, набранных продуктом компании ABIT по завершении теста Business Winstone, и два первых места по итогам выполнения тестов, определяющих быстродействие подсистемы памяти и видеоподсистемы из состава пакета PCMark05.
  • Pros: Плата успешно завершила тест на устойчивость системы в стрессовых ситуациях (установки BIOS Setup — Optimized Defaults), подтвердив репутацию сбалансированного продукта для целевой аудитории, которая не прочь поэкспериментировать с параметрами BIOS для достижения максимально возможной производительности на «тяжелых» приложениях.
  • Cons: Соединить две графические платы перемычкой SLI-Bridge, выполненной на текстолитовой основе, стоило нам немалых усилий. Обе платы в итоге оказались установлены со значительным перекосом. Отметим также, что для указанной конфигурации фактически недоступен один из двух PCI-портов (ближний ко второму графическому порту), относительный дефицит которых у AN8 32X может вызвать известные затруднения.

  • Summary: Abit kommer som vanlig sent, men godt. Vi liker trenden med lydløse kjøleløsninger, og Abits løsning fungerer helt fint. Ytelsen er meget god og kortet hevder seg gjennomgående på toppen. En del av dette kan vel tilskrives den noe høyere frekvensen som prosessorer opererer med på dette hovedkortet (202,1 MHz HTT som standard). Kortet har greit med tilkoblingsmuligheter. For enkelte kan det kanskje bli litt snaut med to PCI-spor, men det er trolig nok for de fleste.
