ABIT HAS UNVEILED its newest motherboard, the A-N78HD, forAMD Socket AM2+/AM2 processors. It is the first Abit mainboard to supportNvidia’s Hybrid SLI technology, and is based on that company’s Geforce 8200chipset.
Abit says that it’s new offering, which it calls a multimedia platformmotherboard, puts more focus on video output flexibility, giving users threedifferent connection options on-board. The first is the standard D-Sub VGAconnector, the second is DVI for high resolution monitors and the third optionis HDMI for HD monitors and TV devices with combined HD audio output. Abit alsoreckons its support for Hybrid SLI will make it easier to push further ahead inadvanced graphics upgrades in the future.
The company also boasts that its mainboard offers “GeForce Boost” and“Hybrid Power”. GeForce Boost gives the user scalable graphics performance ifthey install an extra discrete graphics card, and Hybrid Power lets them switchoff any unused graphics adaptor, which means it can work on lower powerconsumption.

For those users who are partial to their high definition multimedia, theGeForce 8 graphics supports DirectX 10 and Shader Model 4.0. The motherboardalso supports Nvidia’s nview multi-display technology, for which it alsoprovides extra add-on cards. Nview lets the user spread their work over multipledisplays.
Abit has also added in a four-phase OC-PWM around the CPU and one extraone-phase OC-PWM for the memory area. The company claims that this will allowfor better overclocking capabilities.
