That depends a lot on your point of view. As an AMD 760 chipset motherboard, it is most assuredly the fastest and most reliable available. It offers all the overclocking and tweaking features you could want as well as coming in three different flavors to suit your needs more exactly. When looking at it in today’s market against the powerhouses that are the KT266A and nForce chipsets, the AMD 760 falls behind in nearly every benchmark — rarely by less than 5%. True power users may see Abit’s attempt at the AMD 760 market as “too little, too late.”
Those of you that are dabbling over the difference in performance of 5-10% will surely want to take a look at the Abit KG7 line of motherboards. They are extremely fast and stable, and more than likely offer a solution in the price range you require.
Abit has further things coming, so don’t expect them to be out of the “top of the line” motherboard market for long. Their nForce and KT266A chipset boards are coming along nicely and should be ready for initial looks and reviews sometime very soon. And you can be sure that you can read about it here, at Amdmb.com.
