Tech Report takes a gander at Abit’s latest MAX offering, the AT7 MAX2.
Abit appears to have re-thought the MAX concept a little, and they’ve
come up with an updated AT7 MAX2. This new MAX seems to be more about
packing all sorts of integrated goodies onto the PCB than taking any
kind of stance against legacy ports, which is probably a good thing. But
integrated motherboard components like 6-channel audio, Ethernet, RAID,
and Firewire aren’t quite the novelties they were when the AT7 MAX was
first introduced. These days, it seems that every motherboard
manufacturer is looking to add on extra peripherals, which will make it
tougher for the AT7 MAX2 to stand out as much as its predecessor.
