    abit Introduces the A-S78H Motherboard

    “Hybrid CrossFireX with outstanding Graphics experience”

    April 9,2008- abit announced the latest AMD platform motherboard, the A-S78H, supporting ATI Hybrid CrossFireX Technology for advanced 3D graphics performance. The A-S78H is based on the AMD 780G chipset with ATI Radeon HD3200 Graphics and the SB700. It supports AMD AM2+/AM2 processors running HT3.0 up to 5200MT/s. Four 240-pin DIMM sockets offer a maximum of 8GB memory capacity for Dual Channel DDR2 1066 modules. 1 x PCI-E X16, 1 x PCI-E X1, and 2 x PCI slots hold enough potential for further expansion and system upgrades with different add-on cards.

    The A-S78H features stunning graphics performance, supporting ATI Hybid CrossFireX Technology, ATI UVD hardware decoding, and Surround View Technology.

    ATI Hybrid CrossFireX Technology
    The ATI Hybrid CrossFireX Technology offers multi-GPU performance capabilities by enabling the integrated graphics processor and a discrete graphics processor to operate simultaneously with combined output to a single display for blisteringly-fast frame rates. Enabled hybrid graphics cards models so far include ATI HD2400XT, HD2400Pro, HD3470 and HD3450 based VGA cards, providing the ultimate visual experience.

    DirectX 10 for a yet better graphics experience
    The HD3200 graphics delivers an unmatched Windows Vista® experience, harnessing the increased bandwidth of HT3.0 to a DirectX10 graphics core which provides the 3D rendering power needed to generate best effects under Windows Vista, even under the most demanding circumstances.

    ATI UVD hardware decoder
    The ATI UVD (Unified Video Decoder) is the hardware video decoding processing unit on the GPU, handling the entire H.264, VC-1, and MPEG-2 decode process. With the UVD, you can enjoy Blu-ray and HD-DVD playback with lower power consumption and reduced CPU utilization.

    SurroundView™ Technology

    The A-S78H supports Surround View Technology for two independent display controllers for the CRT, HDMI/ DVI interfaces. You can spread your work across to up to 4 monitors.

    This should be available in shops in June according to Abit NL (mod on their forums).

    Would be cool to get a bit-tech review? Or is that too cheeky to ask :p

    There is almost a media blackout on it at the moment... just the initial announcement and no media frenzy / reviews / previews or anything coming up to it.

    Also, google fails because apparently, this was posted on the 4th October 2008 :p.

    I think you mean 10th April :)

    I have the Abit GeForce 8200 board here for review, not 780G. We are sort of waiting for the new 790GX and 750 southbridge to arrive now too :)

    I understand UK dates, I am from the UK :p

    But on google search results for A-S78H or whatever when it returns this result it says posted 4th October 2008... (I check what dates things are posted to find the most in date info as the majority is reposts).

    Also, this spammer ^^ is notorious, what the hell, hit several forums I use all on different interests in the same day?!!

    Banned now - unless you were talking about Bindi ;)
