What does that mean for its spec? Games are often the usual culprits since they are the main drivers of hardware innovation these days. For the past couple of motherboard chipsets for the AMD processors a trend has begun that no one can quite explain. The first to truly introduce the world to overclocking processors, Abit introduced many features that we see today as almost being standard. Motherboards Previous page Next page. This removes the need for a floppy drive altogether since booting is all I use them for. For reference, running the P3 binary as we do here on a 2Ghz Pentium 4 20 x gives a render time of 55s for our test scene pawns.

ABIT KR7A-RAID – VIA KTA Motherboard Roundup – January

Conclusion So what was the board like overall? In practise it was quite fiddly to attach fans raie the headers even without the ATX power cable plugged in since there is very little room around the headers.

Eminently tweakable and up to Abits usual high standards. Recently on my test system I’ve taken to just using a bootable CD that runs DOS and enough drivers and kra so that I can get any operating system started or partition and manipulate any of my disks. It’s a pet hate of mine for the floppy port to be placed and aligned like it is here but given a long enough cable it shouldn’t pose too many problems.

This content was originally featured on Amdmb. In these past 12 months since the KT chipset, we’ve seen the emergence of some crucial new technologies to partner AMD’s Socket processors, mainly radi the form of memory bandwidth enhancements.

While the graph doesn’t show it very well, performance at x, our lowest test resolution, is over fps at Find other tech and computer products like this over at Amazon UK’s website. It used radi be that Abit was one of only a few choices an enthusiast had when choosing a motherboard, but things have changed. First impressions aren’t exciting. 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 k7ra overclocks.

More on that later. This is becoming a problem as far as board sales go.

Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first raiv Memory timings were always at their most agressive and everything was rock solid.

While the overall front side bus speed would be low due to the high locked multiplier of However performance is excellent when you get it tweaked to the best of its ability. Opulence for the enthusiast.

An excellent board, highly recommended for the performance enthusiast. Customize The Tech Report However an Alpha did fit fine with no clearance issues and being one of the largest Socket A coolers on the market I presume that pretty much anything will fit without a problem.

This removes the need for a floppy drive altogether since booting is all I use them for. Anand takes a guess that the internal data buffers in the chipset have been deepened, allowing a more uninterrupted data flow between CPU and the memory controller kr7z on to main system memory.

Lack of a DX8 card here will show up easily. Let’s take a closer look at some of the more important components and board locations. The graphics industry moves faster than the CPU industry at the moment and it’s all down to games.

Performance I’ve had a pretty special CPU here at Hexus for a short while for review and it was reviewed daid this motherboard. Depending on your priorities, though, this board could look pretty stacked.

Here we can see the KTA being put to good use and used well without any tweaking at all. Generally, krr7a, you should be fine with most hard drive and floppy locations. It seems like the extra time spent by Abit has paid off, not in feature count but in stability and performance. Subscribe to our Newsletter.
