OC3D Review: abit Fatal1ty F-I90HD Socket 775 motherboard

"Onboard Graphics" used to be dirty words in the world of the enthusiast, but with nVidia stepping up the heat with their onboard GPU's, it's not quite so bad.

AMD/ATI decided it's about time they hit back with something special...let's see what we've got

I think the most impressive part is the letter from Wendell!

Tbh I've quite liked the look of this one since I first saw it, imo it'd be fantastic for a HTPC.

One thing I just thought of actually, why did they decide to brand it as a fatality product? Surely they should be for 'hardcore' gamers?

Well ye I thought that a bit strange, but I suppose they are trying to market it as a gaming product

I'm sure they'd probably make more money marketing it as a HTPC product. Without the fatality branding it'd probably be cheaper and the 690G with HDMI just seems like the perfect HTPC board. Ah well, I'm sure there are some very well paid people in the workd making these kind of desisions.

HI Guys

Can i request something in the review. What screen res does it go up to. Reason being is that I have an older abit board here that i cant remember and I cant get the full 1440 * 900 even with latest drivers, think its purely a spec issue
