I am interested in purchasing the AX8 mobo. Does anyone have it ? If so, what is
your experience with it ? Do you know what the difference is between the AX8,
the AX8-3rd Eye, and the AX8 v2.0 ? Also I can find no suppliers of the latter
two, do you know who might sell them ?

The 3rd Eye version comes with a little clock thing that can be used to
monitor motherboard data without the need for software onscreen.

The v2.0 is sopposedly the only K8T890 board around compatible with Dual-
core processors. But, I cant find any for sale either, I'd like to buy
one. :( 

There is also a AX8-V around that doesnt have the third IDE channel and
some other bits and pieces.

I queried Abit about v2.0 but received no answer from them. I guess they are
interested in showing it on their US web site, as if it actually exists, but not
in selling it at all. That's a new marketing ploy on me. Maybe it is just
vaporware and does not really exist at all, or maybe it has not been distributed
to anyone yet, at least in the US. I have never seen an English language review
of it so this suggests to me that it has been released in Taiwan but not in the
United States. I guess if one is rich and doing well one does not need to
release a product to foreign markets.

Thanks for the information. I have not seen an ax8 revision 2 released anywhere
in the US.

Hi,

Where in the U.K. did you obtain the AX8 v2.0 from?

Thanks, Trevor.
