Abit could have side-stepped the chipset’s audio deficiencies by employing a third-party audio chip like VIA’s eight-channel Envy24, which is capable of high definition sampling rates and resolutions, but they’ve elected to slap on a six-channel Realtek ALC codec instead. The Port 80 card is not one of them. In addition to handling storage duties, the nForce4 Ultra chipset also handles the Fatal1ty board’s networking capabilities. Given the board’s relatively high price, it would have been nice to see a second Gigabit Ethernet port or even a Wi-Fi chip on-board. DFI battle royal if you will.

The specs As usual, we’ll kick things off with a look at some highlights from the Fatal1ty AN8’s spec sheet. The Fatal1ty AN8 could also use a little help on the audio front, where the nForce4 Ultra’s basic AC’97 audio looks particularly feeble next to its cutting-edge networking and storage xn8. Call it an ABIT vs.
ABIT AN8 SLi, Socket 939, AMD Motherboard
On a more serio The Port 80 netwokr is not one of them. This arrangement leaves two of the chipset’s PCI-E lanes untapped, but given the lack of PCI Express peripherals on the market, that’s not much of a loss.
Every motherboard designed for enthusiasts should have a Port 80 diagnostics card built right in it’s the two-digit alphanumeric display in the bottom left corner of the board. Given the board’s relatively high price, it would have been nice to see a second Gigabit Ethernet port or even a Wi-Fi chip on-board. This doesn’t affect the device itself, but it did make reading the codes slightly more inconvenient. LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture.
Customize The Tech Report The standards that dictate what codes netwoek displayed on the Port 80 card have been around for years, and the values are the same no matter what brand or model of motherboard you use if it has the card anyhow.
It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. It seems qn8 Abit now knows better, too. If it reads ‘C1,’ you most likely have a memory related problem.
With no loyalties, we’re free to openly jump between platforms and manufacturers, sometimes to the dismay of brand-fans, in search of faster speeds that bring better performance. Motherboards Previous page Next page.

Voltage, fan status, and temperature monitoring. No Interruptions Day Shortbread.
Not only do test products with an eye towards getting more speed and performance out of the hardware, we well, mainly me also want everyone else to be green with envy from a little overclocking showmanship too! DFI battle royal if you will. After all, the Fatal1ty brand squarely targets gamers and enthusiasts who know better than to covet Pentium 4 motherboards.
Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Overall the layout of the motherboard is decent, although there are a few things that leave me scratching my head. Given the Pentium 4 platform’s comparably poor gaming performance, that probably wasn’t the greatest idea. Dell returns to the stock market after six years.
While the nForce4 Ultra’s integrated GigE controller and bundled Firewall are no doubt impressive, it’s a little disappointing that the Fatal1ty AN8 doesn’t come with a second networking option.
