There is a website (  It doesn't seem
to contain any documentation, although the site-map page does have a
"Technotes" bullet-point which isn't a hypertext link (I tried the obvious,
but it didn't work).  There don't seem to be any drivers for UDMA66
either.  Maybe ABIT are shipping boards with the things on before the
drivers have been written!  AFAIK the BP6 provides two UDMA33 channels
AND two UDMA66 channels.
