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
