X-bit labs reports that Abit will cease to exist entirely starting the first of January, 2009, as the owner of the brand — Universal Scientific Industrial — is in the process of restructuring and cutting down the costs.

    They made some very interesting motherboards.

    I remember one where you could put two Pentium III-based Celerons (or PIIIs) to build a dual-processor budget machine that could drive, IIRC, up to 8 IDE devices.

    I think current PC market does not favor "interesting" that much.
