Universal Abit this week rolled its latest Fatal1ty-branded mobo, this one based on Nvidia's Intel-oriented nForce 650i SLI chipset. It'll take an Core 2 desktop processor and run it on a 1,066MHz frontside bus speed.

The Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI Professional incorporates a pair of x16 PCI Express graphics card slots, ready for dual-GPU rendering, along with Nvdia's FirstPacket Gigabit Ethernet latency-busting technology for smooth LAN play. There's sufficient slottage for up to 32GB of 800MHz DDR 2 dual-channel memory, and 7.1-channel HD audio for more immersive zaps and bangs.

The board's ready to connect four 3Gbps SATA drives in a variety of RAID and non-RAID configurations, plus eight USB 2.0 ports for external peripherals. The chipset's cooled with passive radiators, Abit said. It also claimed the board's Japanese capacitors ensure a stable current is delivered to all parts of the board for "enhanced stability".

Alas, Abit didn't say when the Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI will ship - or how much it'll cost when it does.
