Abit was also this year present on Cebit. Just as most other manufacturers there weren't many shocking new products. Here's a quick view on some of the new boards.
High End chipset cooling. With active fan cooling and heatpipe construction. The size of this chipset cooler used to be a processor cooling about 2 generations ago. This is what we may expect soon on high end boards.
The Abit AN78G board for AMD AM2+.
The Abit IP35 Pro XE board for Intel 775.
The Abit IP45 GT3 board for Intel 775.
The Abit IP45 Pro board for Intel 775.
The Abit X38 Quad GT board for Intel 775. Foxconn
Foxconn is in the market for a very long time. But recently they started focussing more on the end user market. And almost immediately we see some very special products.
But first an overview of some multimedia products, digital cameras and recorders.
And a range of cases....
Just as a lot of other manufacturers Foxconn is following the "Green" trend this year. Introducing some power efficient mainboards.
What if ... all computers on Cebit would use Foxconns Green boards ? Well, this counter shows us chat we could have saved.
The Foxconn "Destroyer" series. Nvidia Nforce 780 SLI based AM2 board.
And the Intel 775, "Dreadnought" counterpart.
A range of boards with on integrated VGA.
Foxconn Quantum Force is presenting the Intel 775 "Blackops" board, based on Intel’s' latest X48 chipset. Hence the high end watercooled chipset cooling.
Foxconn has an extended sized mainboard, bringing 4 16x PCI express slots, with a lot of place between the slots. Dual Slot cooling or even exotic cooling shouldn't be a problem.
The board further has watercooling pre-installed for the chipset, and even a peltier is installed on the chipset.
Shamino is preparing for an extreme overclocking week, hence the 300 litres of LN2.
