Summary: We ran the IN9 with a 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo E6300 with the FSB pushed up to 1,333MHz and even did a few runs at over 1,400MHz with no issues. With performance a nonissue, we think the choice comes down to features. The enthusiast-oriented features of the IN9 push it beyond the budget MSI board. Still this isn’t the best 680i board we’ve seen. That honor goes to Asus’s awesome Striker Extreme.
Pros: Easy-to-use BIOS is still our favorite.
Cons: Mediocre documentation; Realtek audio doesn’t support EAX.
Summary: It seems to me, that Abit are getting better and better with each generation of their new motherboards. I must applaud them for producing such great motherboards with enthusiasts in mind. They seem to know exactly what the enthusiasts want ... good performance, overclockability, stability and great features. These are the things that you'll find here.
Flagship motherboards tend to offer a lot of extra features, this is definitely the case with the IN9 32X-Max.
Excerpt: nForce 680i motherboards are now starting to pop up from all the major players in the motherboard industry. ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte have already released boards that differ from the nVidia reference design. We have tested the ASUS board, the MSI product is on its way and now more are starting to flow in.
Summary: This motherboard left some dubious impressions. On the one hand, there was nothing to complain about the technical part: the board was running stably, fully revealing its capabilities of the NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI chipset and offers powerful onboard expansion options (plus a Wi-Fi expansion card).
On the other hand, the produce of abit has always been perceived by users as solutions for overclockers.
Pros: Excellent stability and performance;, Support for SLI (two PCI Express x16 slots);, Third PCI Express x16 slot (8 bus lanes);, Support for SerialATA II (8 links; 2x RAID);, Support for ParallelATA (1 link);, Two Gigabit LAN controllers and integrated 8-channel High Definition Audio;, Support for USB2.0 (10 ports) and Firewire (2 ports);, Additional uGuru chip + utilities (FanEQ, BIOS profiles, OC Guru, etc.);, The most advanced system monitoring and support for the uG...
Excerpt: Right from the start In Win company wants to leave a good impression. This manufacturer is very famous in the eastern markets for their power supplies and chassis, even though they have lots of other ... We all know that internet service providers often provide free wireless routers, in order to increase the value of their offer.

Summary: Плату IN9 32X-MAX компании Universal ABIT можно отнести к флагманским продуктам, адресованным поклонникам компьютерных игр, предпочтения которых поровну разделены между однопользовательскими миссиями на локальной машине и сетевыми баталиями.
Pros: Изделие ABIT продемонстрировало адекватное быстродействие на большинстве тестов. Надо отметить лучшую сумму баллов, набранных платформой при выполнении тестов Video Creation и Productivity из пакета SYSmark 2007 и набора тестов 3DMark06.
Excerpt: Introduktion Så er abit’s bud på et super high-end nForce 680i bundkort ankommet med posten. Navnet er IN9 32X-MAX Wi-Fi, og som med de andre MAX modeller er der dømt lækker bundle og masser af features. Abit er den anden producent vi har testet, der har lavet deres eget design med 680i chipsettet. Det er kun ASUS der før har turdet binde an med opgaven, og med gode resultater.
