Mike Andrawes van Anandtech heeft voor ons een review van het Gigabyte GA-7VX mamaplankje geschreven, een Athlon plankje gebaseerd op de KX133 chipset. Het plankje heeft geen bijzondere features maar is ook niet slecht, daarom verdient hij een 6 volgens Anandtech:
Unlike just about every other manufacturer out there, Gigabyte still uses a DIP switch based CPU setup. Four dip switches control the FSB speed, which can be set to 100 / 110 / 115 / 120 / 124 / 129 / 133 / 138 / 143. FSB speeds of 120 MHz or above all include a 1/4 multiplier to the PCI bus to keep it as close to spec as possible. Unfortunately, we've had little success on any motherboard getting the EV6 bus of the Athlon to run stable over about 110 MHz, and the GA-7VX was no exception. We highly recommend using a "Golden Fingers Device" if you choose to overclock your Athlon. In order to supply a stable signal to the Athlon (something that is critical to the stable operation of any Athlon system since the Athlon draws so much power), Gigabyte outfitted the GA-7VX with twelve 1200uF and one 330uF capacitors next to the Slot-A connector.
Although the BIOS is technically the AMI Simple Setup 1.21, it looks exactly like the Award 4.51PG setup that we've come to know and love. All the tweaking options of the Award BIOS are still there, including control of the AGP transfer mode and the status of AGP fast writes, just like other VIA KX133 based boards.
[...] Overall, the Gigabyte GA-7VX is a well made KX133 motherboard, but has few features that make it stand out from the pack. If you're looking for a solid KX133 motherboard, the GA-7VX is an above average solution, although not the best out there.
