Press release; Jessie Shen, DIGITIMES [Friday 30 September 2005]

Albatron announced the launch of its K8NF4X-754 motherboard, which features the Nvidia nForce4 4X chipset and supports dual-graphics card solutions for the AMD Socket-754 Athlon 64 and Sempron CPU lines. According to the company, the motherboard is slated to hit markets in the beginning of November worldwide.

Similar to the PX945P motherboard based on the Intel 945P chipset, the two PCIe graphics card slots on the K8NF4X-754 are comprised of one x16 PCI Express (PCIe) slot and one x4 PCIe slot, allowing users to install two x4 PCIe cards at the same time.
