New feature from Abit unlocks CPU multiplier on some motherboards

Abit has introduced many features that allow users to get the most out of their systems through motherboard overclocking, from SoftMenu, a jumperless BIOS, to OTES cooling, OC strips, and the uGuru utility. Today, Abit has introduced another technology to its lineup – CPU Accelerator.

The speed or frequency of a CPU is calculated by a simple formula, the front-side bus (FSB) multiplied by the clock multiplier value is equal to CPU frequency. For example, an Intel Pentium 4 3.4GHz CPU operates with a 200MHz (800MHz quad-pumped) front-side bus. Using a clock multiplier of 17, 200MHz FSB × 17 = 3.4GHz.
