Let’s take a closer look at some of the more important components and board locations. Constantly a leader in overclocking options, performance, and even features like on-board RAID, Abit has made quite a name for itself in the hardware community. First impressions aren’t exciting. Customize The Tech Report The graphics industry moves faster than the CPU industry at the moment and it’s all down to games. An excellent board, highly recommended for the performance enthusiast. Lack of a DX8 card here will show up easily.

This placement might be a problem if you’re running a bigger case, as standard ribbons might not reach the ports.

More on that later. The board is no frills, stock layout, stock bundle, average features. These mobos include power and reset buttons right on the board, plus a two-digit diagnostic LED display. Performance Raidd had a pretty special CPU here at Hexus for a short while for review and it was reviewed using this motherboard.

Granted testing time was short but nonetheless no problems were encountered. Benchmark results are directly comparable however. Over 60fps x is the magic number here. While their volume of sales worldwide is not quite as impressive in comparison to kr7aa such as Asus and ECS, when you factor in their lack of OEM sales, the sales numbers are very good indeed.


Some color changes and flaws may appear. So stock performance is excellent out of the box. Kg7a on my test system I’ve taken to just using a bootable CD that runs DOS and enough drivers and tools so that I can get any operating system started or partition and manipulate any of my disks. Performance at Mhz 10 x As usual to start off our look at performance we have Sandra numbers.

Kr7x show a few benchmarks at Mhz then a result using a different CPU on the same board to show you what it’s really capable of. This is because it touted lackluster performance and had serious USB issues. DDR memory technology, where data is available on the rise and fall of the clock signal driving the memory module and memory controller, has taken off in a big way since its release and it’s now almost impossible to buy a new AMD system without DDR memory.

Some k7a sound options even rival the venerable SoundBlaster Live! I’d certainly like these features on Abit’s Socket A products. Multiplier Options 5x – 13x.

Abitone of the largest motherboard manufacturers in Taiwan have been known to produce high performing motherboards that cater for the enthusiast crowd.


You have CPU volt adjust to 1. Lack of a DX8 card here will show up easily. Not really an every day setup but it shows you what the motherboard can do when pushed and what a little watercooling can do for your overclocks. The box itself follows Abit new design and was the red and white type I’ve seen blue before too. Not bad for AMD’s new baby and simple watercooling.

Introduction This content was originally featured on Amdmb. Not only raie this chipset fix these issues, but it also featured a whole new memory controller, the same as that seen in the P4X chipset.

Read on to find out! With the review out of the way and couple of days to spend with the processor pushing it a bit further, I decided to see if I could break my personal 3DMark best of WindowsXP, Mhz, XP Mhz x Being heavily dependant on the DX8 rendering features on the graphics card, increasing card clocks would have had a bigger effect, however the increase is there nonetheless.

Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing So while the motherboard wasn’t able to take the XP very high due to heat issues we can still examine the performance increases we did get. So lets take a peek at the board itself and see what AMD have done with the chipset.
