Abit announces Fatal1ty AA8 motherboards

Posted on Wednesday, October 13 2004 @ 18:18:32 CEST by

In an exclusive interview regarding Abit’s new gaming server, Scott Thirlwell, Abit director of marketing, released more details about the Fatal1ty AA8. He explained that the board, which has been the subject of much speculation on the Internet’s message boards, will go into mass production on Friday (October 15) and he expects the first boards to reach store shelves by the end of this month.

For the development of the Fatal1ty AA8, the real driving force behind the board was Johnathan ‘Fatal1ty’ Wendel, according to Thirlwell. Fatal1ty is touted as the world’s top professional gamer, with his latest victory at the first DOOM3 Championship held during ID Software’s Quakecon in August. Fatal1ty and his team have worked with Abit’s engineers in Taiwan and at the company’s factory in China
