"CHIP FIRM AMD has added an Asus motherboard which uses Nforce technology to what it describes as its "stringent" AMD Assured programme.

The firm said in a statement that firms which pass the validation tests have a guarantee that components are reliable, mobos will be available for a long time, are fully validated and can be used in commercial offerings.

The program is a guide to system integrators, said AMD. The motherboard in question is the Asus A7N266-VM/AA board."
