After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
Well the story behind the IS7 is its strange appearance in retail channels weeks before the official launch of the i865 Springdale chipset. Of course there wasn't any mention of the board on the Abit website at the time and even the Abit forum posters were confused. Any event seeing how I missed my publishing mark to have this review out before the Springdale launch, you will just have to believe me.
