Bij MHW hebben ze een review gemaakt van de Tyan S2380 Trinity K7, een Athlon mobo gebaseerd op de VIA KX133 chipset. Groot voordeel zijn de 6 PCI-sloten, maar voor de overcklocker biedt dit bord weinig mogelijkheden. De performance was dan weer goed, dan weer minder:
After evaluating the results, I have some mixed feelings about the overall performance of the board. I can say that the board is an average performer in some tests, yet it excels on some but fails in others. It's just a mixed bag, hence the rating of average.
The Trinity K7's layout may pose problems if one desires to use a high performance cooling solution for their CPU. So future buyers must keep this in mind. The performance isn't as striking as one would think, especially for a product from a company with as great a reputation as Tyan. The board needs a bit more refining of tweaks to be a real performer. I was a bit disappointed as I was expecting more. Heck, the board could just need a future BIOS revision.
