ABIT announced the A-S78H Motherboard, supporting ATI Hybrid CrossFireX Technology. 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 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.
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.
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.
