Since we started Hardware.Info back in 1998, we've probably tested almost 1,000 motherboards. Usually it's not the most exciting piece of hardware, but through the years we've seen some pretty interesting and creative attempts at innovation. In a bout of nostalgia, we took a look back at the most interesting and the most eyebrow-raising motherboards that came across our desks through the years. The desire for innovation is a breeding ground for some some strange and interesting ideas, that's for sure. Some designs pushed the boundaries with innovations that inspired the competition and changed motherboards forever, others should probably have stayed on the drawing board. We picked out 20 that deserve a special mention, motherboards that came out between the years 1999 and 2010. Do you remember the ABIT BP6, AOpen AX3SP Pro Che Che or Gigabyte GA-G1975X?
