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.
