There is also a retaining clip for the AGP card, so any LAN gamers will not find it coming loose when they are moving their boxes around. This utilised a socket and was used with the original PIV, the Willamette.
I ran a few more tests to see if the memory bandwidth was a limiting factor. The Rambus options are for the divider, which can be set at MHz for a 3x divider, MHz for a 4x divider, or set to Auto. It may lack things like USB2, 6 channel audio, etc, but it more than makes up for it in the stability and performance. Log in Don’t have an account?

Another interesting feature we found on the TH7 are the two buttons beside the diagnostic display.
The increase here is only 2 fps, but it’s still an increase. I have also benchmarked the board with two different settings, to test the performance of the Rdram when running at PC speeds. Building on their laurels after the abiit they achieved with that board, they have now introduced the TH7-II, for abif with socket PIV. Another good feature that has been implemented is the use of a diagnostic display, which can show error codes and allow quick and easy diagnosis of any problems that might occur when installing the board.
Even a quick glance reveals something a little unusual in the bottom left corner of the board. Find other tech and computer products like this over at Amazon Canada’s website. One neat new feature we found on the TH7 is a diagnostic tool similar to that found on some EPoX boards. I can’t imagine any heat sink having problems fitting in the expansive area Abit has left open.

The choice of boards with the i chipset is quite limited, as it generally costs more than an equivalent board with the i chipset. Three-high USB ports and a vertical audio port configuration.
I ran the test five times at each speed, and each time the difference ranged between points. I have been extremely impressed with the Abit TH7-II throughout testing, it has not failed once, and stability has been excellent. The i does not officially support this speed, that will not be implemented until the ie later on this year, but the Abit board had no trouble running at that speed, which provides some future proofing in these fast moving times.
