Abit AT8: µGuru comes to the RD480

Abit has a long and storied history as a top manufacturer of enthusiast level boards that catered to the overclocking community. Abit found itself in trouble over the past couple of years and for all intents and purposes, it was close to ceasing business operations. Fortunately, they entered into a long-term partnership with USI this past January that should ensure their financial health for the foreseeable future. This strategic partnership also signals a return of Abit to their roots as a company driven to provide the computer enthusiast and extreme overclocker with the highest performance solutions available. Although Abit just recently announced the AT8 32X motherboard based on the ATI CrossFire Xpress 3200 Northbridge (RD580) and ULi M1575 Southbridge, we will be looking at the AT8 motherboard based on the ATI CrossFire Xpress 200 Northbridge (RD480) and ULi M1575 Southbridge solution.

Doesn't the RD580 improve greatly over the RD480? This may be a misplaced product;

The AT8 (RD480) is a 'discontinued' product in Australia, we await the AT8-32X here instead. I suspect more regions will lose the AT8 too when the 32X appears.
I was more interested in the fact that the chipset and ABIT board in particular got a good write-up. Also that ABIT are seemingly addressing the AT8's issues with an updated BIOS (or two). This gives a decent indication on the support set-up for these boards.
I've currently got an nF4 board I'm thinking of replacing but am not keen to go AM2 yet hence my interest...
