With support for all the latest Intel dual-core and quad-core processors the AW9D series is ready for all enthusiasts can throw at them. In this article we take the recently released Intel D975XBX2 'Bad Axe 2' motherboard and pair it against the AW9D-MAX 'Bushido' to see which board comes out on top!
The abit AW9D-MAX motherboard is one of the best Intel 965P/975X motherboard that I have used to date. It's actually refreshing using a motherboard like the abit AW9D-MAX because everything just works out of the box. The NVIDIA 680i chipset has gotten a ton of attention in recent weeks, but at the same time it launched with numerous bugs that are just now starting to be taken care of via BIOS updates. The Intel 975 Express chipset has been on the market for over a year and has 99% of the bugs worked out, which is nice for those of us that want to set up their system with a stable overclock and be done.
