There is probably no other chipset family currently produced in bigger quantity Abit BD7-III available in more mainboards than Abit BD7-III The chipset family is becoming what the Intel BX chipset was a few years ago: What more could you want? Well, ATA is rather useless and seems to have no impact on hard disk performance. There was good reason that Intel decided long time ago to simply skip this standard. After the first upgrade from to E to accommodate the Pentium 4 Northwood processor with a MHz system bus in midIntel has now done another step to keep the competitive.

What has been changed? Intel chipset diagrams for iE and iPE.


Looking at the Intel chipset diagrams it seems nothing much has been changed: The feature comparison shows the evolution that the chipset has taken from the original to the recently released PE. Abit BD7-III the specification sheet in detail we find only 2 differences the now released PE and its predecessor E.

The added Abit BD7-III chipset support for DDR is of course a desired feature. As HT is still relatively new we quote here how Intel is explaining this technology. Hyper-Threading Technology provides thread-level-parallelism TLP on each processor resulting in increased utilization of processor execution resources. Hyper-Threading Technology is a form of simultaneous multi-threading technology SMT where multiple threads of software applications can be run simultaneously on one processor. This is achieved by duplicating the architectural state on each processor, while sharing one set of processor execution resources.

Abit BD7-RAID iD Motherboard Review

Hyper-Threading Technology also delivers faster response times for multi-tasking workload environments. The first IT7 MAX was an instant success, maybe less because of the innovative concept than of its performance and overclocking potential. Such a well performing piece of hardware is Abit BD7-III easily replaced with something unknown. Features, board layout and the package content remain the same, at least at first glance. Later we found some subtle differences. This Abit BD7-III good, because black looks much better.

Abit BD7-III The second generation the MAX 2 Version 1 looked much more impressive in black. Another obvious change is that finally the battery is now mounted flush with the motherboard instead of standing.

A while ago we tested a BD7-II with exactly the same standing battery that the earlier IT7 versions are also sporting, and found it knocked down when we opened the box. The Abit BD7-III type battery, broken on our BD7-II. The preferred flush-mounted battery of the V2. A mix up of sorts? Other differences are very subtle and become only visible by close inspection Abit BD7-III comparison. Unchanged from its predecessor, the new Version 2 has a 4-way power supply with 8 mosfets.


But closer inspection shows that the size of the mosfets has almost doubled. The mosfets regulate the current supplied to the CPU and their quality is important for stability. We also realized that the number of capacitors around the CPU socket has been reduced from 6 to 5 and that several smaller transistors in the area around the DIMM sockets have been added. Different capacitors on Abit BD7-III left and V2 right. A positive side effect of the better power supply seems to be a slightly better stability and overclocking potential as we found out later.
