In a historical move, ABIT has partnered with the world's top gamer - Johnathan 'Fatal1ty' Wendel - to develop PC gaming hardware with no equal. Built for extreme speed and unmatched stability, the ABIT Fatal1ty Hardware Series is a platform designed for gaming from the ground up. Today, ABIT is proud to launch the first of the Fatal1ty hardware series - the Fatal1ty AA8XE motherboard and Fatal1ty X700XT Graphics Card.
By utilizing bleeding-edge technologies like DDR2 and PCI Express, and combining the best of ABIT Engineering with the gaming prowess of Fatal1ty, the Fatal1ty AA8XE and Fatal1ty X700XT deliver an unprecedented array of features, stability and performance for a BulletProof gaming platform like no other.
Engineered by ABIT. Game-tested and approved by Fatal1ty. The Fatal1ty Hardware Series represents the culmination of ABIT Engineering with the gaming prowess and experience of the world's number one professional gamer, Johnathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel. The result of this collaboration is a gaming platform with no equal, specifically engineered for the gamer that demands nothing less than the very best.
In competition, a few dropped frames could mean the difference between victory and defeat. That's why the Fatal1ty AA8XE is built for extreme performance. On the Fatal1ty AA8XE is specially designed unlockable BIOS, which grants the user a number of BIOS options designed to push the system to the very limits for unmatched gaming performance. The Fatal1ty AA8XE also comes with ABIT's exclusive ΅Guru technology, which integrates OC Guru overclocking, ABIT EQ hardware monitoring, FlashMenu 1-click BIOS updating, and BlackBox diagnostic technology into a user friendly Windows-based interface. With OC Guru, users can tune front side bus speeds and CPU voltages on-the-fly through Windows. ABIT EQ lets users monitor fan speeds, system voltages and temperatures at-a-glance, and FlashMenu 1-click BIOS update makes it easy to keep the system running in absolute peak condition. If a problem arises, BlackBox automatically detects your hardware configuration, and allows it to be sent to ABIT tech support for fast, friendly e-service. With OC Guru, ABIT EQ, FlashMenu, and BlackBox, gamers have the most comprehensive suite of system utilities ever to power a desktop motherboard.
For the ultimate in networking performance, the Fatal1ty AA8XE delivers dual Intel LAN capabilities. Use the 10/100 LAN to connect to the Internet at the lowest possible latencies, and the Gigabit LAN for lightning-fast file transfers in your home network or your next LAN party. Audio performance is also top-notch with 7.1 channel high-definition audio backed by ABIT's AudioMAX technology. By using a separate daughter card for audio connectors, ABIT Engineers have greatly reduced the amount of noise caused by high frequencies generated from the motherboard. With AudioMAX, gamers can zero in on their prey with enhanced audio clarity. In fact, the Fatal1ty AA8XE is the first motherboard to receive Dolby Digital Live support.
The Fatal1ty AA8XE motherboard integrates no less than five cooling technologies that keep the Fatal1ty AA8XE cool in the heat of battle. The specially designed PWM system not only delivers clean stable power to the on-board components, but positioned over the MOSFETs are high-grade heatsinks that draw heat efficiently from some of a motherboard's hottest components. In fact, with ABIT's unique layout, the MOSFETs remain below 50°C! With its unique vertical orientation, OTES AeroFlow simultaneously cools the northbridge, graphics card, and southbridge. ABIT Engineers innovate yet again with OTES RAMFlow, the world's first integrated memory thermal solution on a desktop motherboard. With OTES RAMFlow, DDR memory is kept cool via two high-speed fans for unsurpassed system stability. The Fatal1ty AA8XE also includes ABIT Engineered OC Strips, which help quickly draw heat away from the PCB. All heat is then exhausted by a Dual OTES system, which delivers twin fans and a heat duct that efficiently channels heat from the inside to the outside of the case. For the optimal balance of thermal and acoustic performance, all fans are automatically controlled via ΅Guru. With these exclusive ABIT technologies, the Fatal1ty AA8XE delivers impressive thermal performance for the serious gamer right out of the box.
Case modders will love the Fatal1ty AA8XE. The Fatal1ty AA8XE features distinctive styling with a striking red and black color theme which will turn heads in a modded case. And when the lights are dim, the Fatal1ty AA8XE stands out from the crowd with red LED backlights that outline the motherboard in a crimson glow.
On the graphics side, the Fatal1ty X700XT offers impressive performance for today's hottest 3D games. Instead of the typical cookie-cutter design, the Fatal1ty X700XT uses an ABIT Engineered symmetrical layout that delivers consistent power across the entire graphics card for unmatched stability. The Fatal1ty X700XT includes 256MB of ultra-fast GDDR3 memory rated at 1.6ns for blistering performance. With ABIT-designed copper heatsink and RAMsinks, the Fatal1ty X700XT delivers VPU temperatures that are up to 8° cooler than the competition, and with OC Strips, the Fatal1ty X700XT quickly draws excessive heat from the PCB.
With ABIT Engineering and the gaming insight of Fatal1ty, the Fatal1ty AA8XE motherboard and Fatal1ty X700XT graphics card deliver the speed and stability that gamers like Fatal1ty demand on the professional gaming circuit.
