LostCircuits heeft een uitgebreide review gepost van het nieuwe Asus K7V KX133 mobo met 5xPCI, 1xAMR, 3xDIMM en 1x AGP Pro. Het bordje bleek (slechts) tot 112MHz bussnelheid stabiel te kunnen draaien. Hier een hap uit de conclusie:
Compared to the K7M, ASUS has learned from some of the mistakes. The conflict between the ATX power connector and the requirement for cooling has been resolved by moving the connector block as far away as possible. All in all, the K7V is an excellent board with enough room to play around in the BIOS settings and excellent expandability. The worst aspects of the K7V in its present form are the BIOS layout and the presence of the AMR slot. An old fashioned ISA slot would offer quite a bit more, particularly in the domain of sound or modem, particularly in view of the fact that the story about ISA causing an overall performance hit turns more and more into what it really is: an unsubstantiated hype bare of any real world basis.
All in all, so far the K7V appears to be the best SlotA mainboard currently available. Where others give golden awards, we feel that this simple statement issued by LostCircuits suffices.
