The New BX6
The Abit name is well-known in the world of the Pentium II - their policy in motherboard manufacturing has always been to provide the greatest flexibility and feature set available, and then up that standard another notch. As a result, Abit now has some of the most popular BX motherboards on the market, the original BX6, and the highly acclaimed BH6. But now, the 133Mhz Front-Side Bus and Intel's Camino chipset (as well as SiS/VIA competition working closely behind, and even ahead of Intel) is looming over the horizon. Realizing that the switch to 133Mhz is no overnight process, Abit has taken the time to revisit the BX board once again, and in their continuing quest to perfect the overclocking standard, it looks like the third time's the charm.
When it comes to motherboards today, the biggest question is usually one of feature set rather than speed. This is really the
department where Abit shines, as they've previously hit the mark with both the BX6 and the BH6.
The BH6, dubbed the "Overclocker's Dream" by thousands around the globe, has been one of the hottest selling motherboards in recent history, by providing a simple to use yet extremely rich overclocking feature set. But it is time for the king to step down. A new heir to the throne is about to be crowned.
Enter the Abit BX6-2.0.
Rather than sit back
and ride on the laurels of their previous motherboards, Abit has gone back to the drawing board,
and incorporated the best features of both the BX6 and the BH6 into their newest motherboard.
