Anand Lal Shimpi zag Femme's Abit KA7 review en besloot vervolgens zelf ook maar eens snel aan het werk te gaan met dit leuk KX133 plankje. Anand komt tot de conclusie dat de KA7 voor gebruikers die geen trek hebben in onboard audio en AMR zooi een perfect alternatief vormt voor Asus' K7V, die echter wel nog steeds de meest stabiele KX133 oplossing is.
While we're still leaning towards the ASUS K7V because of its added stability and the reliability that we've come to know and appreciate from ASUS, credit must be given where it is deserved and ABIT definitely deserves credit for the KA7. System Integrators and OEMs will probably want to explore the ASUS boards as potential options because of their on-board audio codec and AMR slot, but performance oriented enthusiasts will definitely appreciate the amount of control granted by the KA7.
The KA7 is definitely reminiscent of what we all should remember ABIT for, as the company that helped define what features we take for granted now and as the company that helped pioneer the overclocking community.
ABIT hasn't had the greatest success in recent history, especially with all of the competition out there offering very ABIT-like options, but the KA7 is definitely one of the best KX133 motherboards available, thus helping to restore some of ABIT's unique qualities.
