No, i do not believe that PAT is enabled on the AI7. But the AI& has its own features which help improve the memory. This new feature is called GAT short for Game Accelerator Technology. You can, depending on your memory, eneable features of this to stress your memory to run faster and tighter.

The AI7 will never be as fast as an 875 chipset based board. I had one for a week, tested it, sent it back. It worked fine, but benchmarks were noticeably lower, especially cpu scores. The memory performance of this board rivals even those of the highly touted Asus boards.
