The hardware manufacturer, which won a place of honor at the Virtual Overlooking Hall, presented computers for businesses, a revolutionary ultra-portable computer, and how it is possible without motherboards - and much.

At CeBIT this year, we have seen several renewed attempts by ABIT to position itself in the global hardware market: from a ultra-portable computer that makes even ASUS's Eee pale to first-class motherboards.
There is no doubt that the most daring move the company is making this year is an attempt to enter the ultra-mobile market. In terms of branding, though, this is a slight mistake, as ABIT's tiny computer is more reminiscent of a PDA or GPS than a traditional ultra-portable computer. In addition, ABIT seems to have learned its lesson from the astronomical sales rates of the ASUS Eee, since in the technical data of the new mobile, USI MID150 named, there are many elements we have seen in the Eee. The first and most notable thing is the weight of the laptop, which stands at only 300 grams, but unlike the Eee, which contains an old and weak Celeron processor, the MID150 will contain a shiny new processor of the type Silverthorne At 1.2GHz speed, while ABIT retains the option to equip it with a more powerful processor in the future. The processors, which we told you in the past, are designed by Intel as part of its Menlow platform and built for zero power consumption to keep the battery life of the computer, which currently stands at 4 hours. Other technical data reminiscent of the famous Eee is the amount of memory, and its storage: The MID150 will be equipped with an 2, 4, or 8 gigabyte hard drive (again to conserve power) and will contain internal memory Of 512 megabytes with one gigabyte expansion option. In terms of connectivity, the MID150 also delivers the goods with built-in 802.11b / g support and a built-in GPS receiver.
In addition to the ultra-portable MID150, ABIT seems to be making a supreme effort to rebrand itself and become once again the proud ABIT. In order to do this, the company has deployed its motherboards, based on the best new chipsets, both from Intel and AMD-ATI. It should be noted that in some motherboards the company returned to Mekorót, and instead of the passive cooling usually used, it chose to assemble a separate cooling unit in addition to the fan. This step was explained to us by the company's representatives that today's chip systems are becoming hot and transferring their heat to the rest of the motherboard, which can be dangerous to the stability of the entire system. ABIT also tries to brand itself as a company for exotic computer systems, as it presented a number of interesting computer systems, some of which contained extreme cooling systems or the array of several video cards (or both in some cases). It is reasonable to assume that these computer systems are designed to break world records on 3DMark06 and certainly give the impression that the company is working diligently to penetrate the high end markets - those that are mainly populated with gamers and overclockers.
In the attached pictures you can see several motherboards from the above, including motherboards based on Intel's newest chipsets: the X48 for the high-end market and the mainstream P45. If you learn lessons from the past, it will be motherboards that will excel in the field of speeding, with the ABIT flagship being probably the IX48-MAX TigerForce. This panel, which according to the market segment to which it is intended, comes from the well-equipped ABIT plants, by its very launch, challenges the hegemony of ASUS and other companies in the motherboards market, designed for radical Uralcauts.
The latest market in which ABIT is trying to create a foothold is the integrated computer market. These computers are designed primarily for businesses such as supermarkets, hospitals, gas stations and government offices. ABIT representatives who were present at the exhibition pointed out to us that these are prototypes and prototypes, and that at the stage of mass production they will only arrive in a few months. Like the MID150 computer, these computers also carry the USI logo, and later on, when they are released, they will be marketed under the ABIT brand itself.
