De mensen van GA-Hardware hebben een aardige review geschreven van de KA7, Abit's welbekende Athlon mobo met KX133 chipset. De reviewer gebruikte een Athlon 900 voor de test die hij stabiel kon krijgen op 1100 MHz (FSB 122MHz) na wat gerotzooi met de geheugensettings. Dit was zonder extra koeling. Men was ook erg enthousiast over de vele features van de KA7:
As with any new product, there are design choices along the way. One thing about ABIT is that their products are really aimed at enthusiasts. In this particular case, it has made them rather different than the "average" KX133 motherboard. For starters, ABIT is the only manufacturer to drop the AMR (Audio Modem Riser). Beyond that they also clipped out the onboard sound. Why did they remove these? Because their target audience is not very likely to use either one.
What did they add? Well, you get a sixth PCI slot as well as still having an ISA slot. That is pretty unique among the KX133s. Also, the KA7 is one of two KX133 motherboards with a 4th DIMM slot. ABIT also gives you their BIOS which allows you to tweak Front Side Bus speeds in 1MHz increments, which is handy in overclocking. As an added bonus, you get a thermistor that you can use for temperature monitoring on any component in your case.
