Albatron Technology, a mainboard company established only a couple of years ago and quickly managed to become a true expert in platform field, today announced availability of new BIOS versions for its certain mainboards to fully support the upcoming Prescott core based Intel Pentium 4 processors.

“With the “Prescott Ready” mainboards, new users will have the luxury of buying the latest technologies with the option of performance upgrades later when the Prescott CPUs are officially released. Existing mainboard owners will also be able to move up to the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition or the Prescott with a simple BIOS upgrade,” the company’s spokesperson said Thursday.
