Jeremy van AGN Hardware heeft z'n review van de Abit BX6-II (uit januari) geupdate met zijn ervaringen met de nieuwe 2.02 revisie. Met de eerste revisie waren nogal wat problemen (vooral Amerikanen!?). Met Rev2.02 lijkt alles weer ok te zijn:
When you put as much faith in a product line as consumers have given Abit's B-6 models of main boards, you want answers when the products fail to meet the needs of the users. Abit's original BX6 and the LX6 before it were fantastic performers, so what had gone wrong with the BX6 2.0? Even before we had a chance to ask Abit, they had an answer. I have spent the last few weeks torturing the Abit BX6 2.2 (also known as the 2.02) to see if Abit's answer was a sufficient one. After all, Abit had quite a bit running on the BX6 2.0's success, and and when it failed to deliver as promised people began to take notice, including myself. We weren't so much interested in benchmarked speed as we were in stability and fixed problems. What we found in the process was a renewed faith in Abit boards. Without going into the gory details (this is just an update after all), no matter whet we threw at the 2.0 it still booted and ran without error. We tried 20+ combinations of PCI cards and our only real finding was that the SB Live! PCI sound card preferred to be in either slot 2, 3, or 4 on the PCI bus. Aside from that snag we had no problems with random reboots. Pioneer DVD players also seemed to work well and were detected as normal, the CPU temperature sensor worked as expected, as was never more than a few degrees different than an adjacent sensor monitored by the SuperCooler.
Ik heb sinds twee week ook in BX6-II Rev2.02 (daarvoor BX6) en ik ben erg blij mee. Installatie was wel wazig. Eerst wilde het ding niet booten, bleek te komen omdat een ISA kaart de plank net iets te voor door liet beugen (bij de meeste printplaten niet zo'n probleem). Toen het ding eenmaal werkte kon ik niet meer stabiel op 464 draaien. Een BIOS update naar het laatste beta update loste _alle_ problemen op!
