Submission + - Abit to Close Its Doors Forever on Dec 31, 2008 (xbitlabs.com) 1

ki1obyte writes: Earlier this year, Abit, once leading-edge maker of computer mainboards and other components, was slated to shut down motherboard production by the end of 2008 and focus on consumer electronics devices. 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.

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
