Abit is going to launch a new series of motherboards later this week, that according to them would change the way people treat mainboards. The new line of motherboards aimed to offer gamers an ultimate platform solution for gamers is named after a famous gamer, Fatal1ty.
One of the world’s top manufacturer of mainboards and graphics cards is pretty tight-lipped on its new lineup of products named after a famous gamer. What is known about the new Fatal1ty series is that the mainboard company did its best to offer an ultimate platform solution for gamers.

“We do not disclose much information about the new Fatal1ty family of mainboards, but based on the obtainable information I can assume that the Fatal1ty mainboards will be totally different from what you expect from ABIT or any other makers around,” an ABIT’s spokesperson told X-bit labs.

ABIT’s first Fatal1ty mainboard will be based on Intel’s i925X core-logic and will be designed for Intel’s processors in LGA775 form-factor. Later during the year ABIT is expected to release Fatal1ty flavours based on Intel’s i925XE with support for 1066MHz Quad Pumped Bus and NVIDIA’s nForce4 for AMD Athlon 64 processors possibly equipped with 2 PCI Express x16 slots.
Abit declined to comment about why the Fatal1ty motherboards would be so special, but they said that they will differ by design and feature-set from current available high-end offerings.

The company will present the Fatal1ty motherboards at QuakeCon 2004, and they are expected to be available later this month.
