Ik liep bij AnandTech Webnews tegen deze press release van de Abit BF6 (BE6-II met 6 PCI slots, zonder ATA66):

ABIT Announces the Release of the BF6 with Six PCI and Soft Menu™ III!

Taipei, Taiwan, October 13th, 1999—ABIT announces the release of the BF6, the latest BX chipset ATX based SLOT 1 motherboard with Soft Menu™ III technology. The BF6 is the next generation of ABIT's famous BH6 motherboard. There are more advanced hardware specifications with the BF6 including two functions for setting CPU parameters, BIOS Soft Menu™ and DIP Switches.

The BF6 increases ABIT's popular advanced Jumperless technology, Soft Menu™ III which provides ABIT's customers the easiest and safest environment to achieve ultimate performance.

Soft MenuTMIII
The BF6 implements Soft MenuTMIII technology that eliminates all jumpers on the mainboard that set CPU parameters, allowing end-users to easily and correctly install or upgrade their own CPUs. The BF6 BIOS supports a wide range of external clock settings, multipliers from 2 to 8 and special multifunction PCI and AGP clock dividers. With the Award 6.0 BIOS, and a new clock generator, Soft Menu™ III supports Front side bus speeds from 66~200MHz, and unlimited from 83-200MHz (increments of 1)! Flexible Boot up sequence, and three setting functions for Power Recover which allows for power on after a power failure.

What's the same?
ABIT's new BF6 has One AGP, Six PCI and 1 ISA slot to handle all of your expansion needs. It also offers official support for Intel's newest Pentium®III and Celeron® processors and completely supports Pentium®IIs and earlier Celerons® as well. Furthermore, it comes with the following features: all the specifications for AGP spec Rev. 1.0 for improved 3D graphics performance at a lower cost, APM/ACPI power management, USB, PS/2 mouse and keyboard connectors, CPU auto-detect, AWARD write protect anti-virus, Wake On LAN, Suspend to RAM, and hardware health monitoring. APM is there also which stands for Advanced Power Management. It is a feature rich power management function for a more energy efficient P.C. It includes Soft Power On/Off, Sleep, Suspend and Stand-By mode, Real Time Clock (RTC) Alarm and RTC Power On, and Modem Ring On. The networking standards Wake On Lan (WOL) and Wake on Ring are also supported. [break] Verder bij AnandTech ook een press release van de BE6-II (BF6 met 5 PCI slots, mét ATA66): [/break] ABIT Announces the Release of the BE6-II, with ATA-UDMA/66 and Soft Menu™ III!

Taipei, Taiwan, October 13th, 1999—ABIT announces the release of the BE6-II, the latest BX chipset ATX based SLOT 1 motherboard, supporting the Ultra DMA/66 IDE Protocol and Soft Menu™ III technology. The BE6-II is the next generation of ABIT's famous BE6 motherboard. There are more advanced hardware specifications with the BE6-II including an UDMA 66 controller and two functions for setting CPU parameters, BIOS Soft Menu™ and DIP Switches.

The BE6-II increases ABIT's popular advanced Jumperless technology, Soft Menu™ III which provides ABIT's customers the easiest and safest environment to achieve ultimate performance.

What's different?
The major difference between the BE6-II and the other BX mainboards is the addition of Ultra DMA/66 support and now ABIT's next generation of Soft Menu™ technology, Soft Menu™ III.

Soft MenuTMIII
The BE6-II implements Soft MenuTMIII technology that eliminates all jumpers on the mainboard that set CPU parameters, allowing end-users to easily and correctly install or upgrade their own CPUs. The BE6-II BIOS supports a wide range of external clock settings, multipliers from 2 to 8 and special multifunction PCI and AGP clock dividers. With the Award 6.0 BIOS, and a new clock generator, Soft Menu™ III supports Front side bus speeds from 66~200MHz, and unlimited from 83-200MHz (increments of 1)! Flexible Boot up sequence, and three setting functions for Power Recover which allows for power on after a power failure.

...en de rest van het verhaaltje is gelijk aan die van de BF6. Hopelijk wil dit nu ook zeggen dat de BE6-II en BF6 binnenkort verkrijgbaar zijn (leveranciers: hier graag input ).

Doe mij maar een slof van die BE6-II! <img src=http://192.87.219.67/~femme/wot/forum/interface/smilies/smile.gif width=15 height=15>. En nu maar hopen dat ie voor de HCC-Dagen er is! <img src=http://192.87.219.67/~femme/wot/forum/interface/smilies/wink.gif width=15 height=15>
Waarom nu nog een nieuw mobo zonder ATA66 ??? <img src=http://192.87.219.67/~femme/wot/forum/interface/smilies/frown.gif width=15 height=15>
Voor mensen met SCSI die die ATA66-shit niet nodig hebben. Of mensen zonder ATA66-schijven die liever een goedkoper bordje hebben zonder ATA66.

Die ATA66-contollers mogen wel van mijn bp6 af. De controllers van je ATA33 kan je tenminste nog uitzetten maar die ATA66 niet, en dat zuigt toch wel een beetje
En zo'n beta-bios er overheen zetten om je 66-controller uit te zetten vind ik ook nix.
