Abit AV8 Review

AMDZone
3 March 2013
  • Conclusion: If you are an overclocker that wants a board with cutting edge features then the Abit AV8 is a good choice. With the unique features like uGuru's advanced monitoring Abit is pushing enthusiast boards to new frontiers. With an attractive price, great overclocking options, and stand out features if you are in the market for a 939 board then the Abit AV8 must not be ignored.

ABIT AV8 (K8T800 Pro socket 939) Motherboard Review

3D Xtreme
31 October 2004
  • Summary: What really disappointed me about this whole review, which has nothing to do with the ABIT board, is the performance of the 754 platform. In many of these tests my AMD3400+ just hammered the 939 platform into the ground. For folks looking to upgrade to the 939 platform from 754, shop around I’m not sure this is exactly anything more than a lateral move at this point. Future-proof? sure. Worth the cost? Not really.

Abit's AV8 motherboard

techreport.com
3 September 2004
  • Summary: With a working AGP/PCI lock, best-in-class BIOS, and a rock-stable overclock to a 260MHz bus, the AV8 certainly lives up to its potential. I'm a little disappointed that our board isn't stable above 260MHz, but that's probably much farther than even most enthusiasts are going to push. There's more to the AV8 than overclocking, though. The board's uGuru-powered BIOS is also loaded with more monitoring and tweaking functionality than any other mobo I've tested.

Abit AV8 K8T800 Pro Motherboard

PC Perspective
13 August 2004
  • Excerpt: While the new 939-pin socket from AMD is definitely taking longer than expected to catch on, the motherboard designers at Abit have been hard at work getting their products ready for the market.  The result is the Abit AV8 motherboard, based on the VIA K8T800 Pro chipset, that supports 1 GHz HyperTransport among other features.

AV8

OCWorkbench
14 July 2004
  • Summary: In our tests, performance is mixed. In some of our tests, ABIT AV8 is better in 3D benchmarks but in some benchmarks that is not the case. Overall, we can feel the speed using FX-53 processor on this board. Features-wise, I could say this board is not as feature packed as compared to KV8-Max3. It is a board made for overclockers. It does not come with a Promise or Highpoint SATA RAID 5 chipset. It only has 2 SATA and 2 IDE channels. That is probably what users need.
  • Pros: uGuru, Gigabit ethernet, 1394, Many overclocking options, PCI/AGP lock
  • Cons: Only 8237 SATA RAID, no Additional RAID SATA ports

Socket939 i kako posijediti u tri dana

PC Ekspert
10 March 2014
  • Conclusion: zzZZzzZZZzzzZZZZZZzzzz *snore* zzZZZZzzZzzz I dalje je 200 fps-a u Grand Cathedral demou na 10×7 Normal postavkama nedostižno. Da su ploče bolji overclockeri , vjerovatno to nebi bilo tako. Ovako opet vidimo prednost nForce3 čipseta i vrlo slab dobitak od overclockinga zbog sporije memorije. Ako se nešto da izvući iz svih testova onda je to činjenica da je prilikom tweakanja Athlon 64 S939 sistema najbitnije memoriju držati na što većem taktu i agresivnijim postavkama.
  • Pros: Na default taktu vrlo stabilna. OK performanse. Dobar izgled. LED diagnostika. BIOS bogat opcijama. OK layout.
  • Cons: Nikakav overclocker. Promjena množitelja radi samo na R1.1 pločama. Osjetljiva na memoriju. Ne radi sa velikim brojem napajanja. Totalno krivo mjeri temperature. Nedovoljan broj SATA i PATA konektora. U svakom pogledu nezrela ploča.

Abit AV8 (Sockel 939, Via K8T800 Pro)

10 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Wir haben uns wieder ein Board für AMD Prozessoren angesehen. Diesmal war das AV-8 für Sockel 939 Prozessoren an der Reihe. Bei den AMD Boards bleibt man leicht auf dem Laufenden, da der Fortschritt der CPUs nicht mehr all zu schnell ist. Von Sockel A sind wir gleich zu Sockel 754 gewechselt, wo auch der erste Athlon 64 darauf betrieben werden konnte. Danach kamen die ersten Sockel 939 Prozessoren auf den Markt.
