According to some research done by our friends at The Inquirer, they believe that the dying AGP interface is still putting up a good fight in terms of the current top selling ABIT motherboards in the UK.

The AV8-3rd Eye appears to be ABIT's best selling motherboard at the moment - it's based on the K8T800 Pro chipset. The AV8, without the Guru clock is also placed in its top 10 selling motherboards, at number 7 in fact.

Both second and third best sellers are also based around VIA's K8T800 Pro chipset, with the KM400A and KV8-Pro taking those spots.

In fact, we have to go all the way down to sixth place before we find ABIT's best selling PCI-Express motherboard. It's the Fatal1ty AN8, which is based on NVIDIA's NForce 4 Ultra chipset. Note that this motherboard does not support SLI.

ABIT were late to market with its SLI motherboard, and we are only just starting to see reviews appearing now. NVIDIA have sold over a million SLI chipsets, so we expect the Fatal1ty AN8 SLI to sell pretty well.
