Yep, that's been rumored to happen a while now...I'm still glad Abit may avoid going bankrupt this way, they were always the enthusiast's best friend in the business!
I hope that, the merger being sorted out, they will lose no time to finally FINALLY release the UL8pro with ULi 1697 chipset *drool*

If they managed to drone about it in their december newsletter AND were able to give away three UL8pro boards as christmas giveaways AND already have the mainboard on their chinese homepage, they should AT LAST satisfy my craving for probably the next OC champion (W1zzard, please review that as fast as possible!).
