Digital Web 3D brengt ons een roundup van een vijftal KX133 bordjes, te weten de Asus K7V, Gigabyte GA-7VX, Abit KA7, Tyan Trinity K7 en de onbekende Impression 771AS. De Abit plank kwam als winnaar uit de bus hoewel elk bordje wel zijn eigen eigenschap had waarin hij uitblonk tegenover de rest. Hier een hap uit de conclusie:
With only five competitors, we almost had no problem deciding who was going to be the choice for the award. Preceeding this I should point out that: GigaByte has shown a solid quality, but the performance and Jumper issue left us wishing for more. The Asus K7V was the fastest KX133 motherboard in our tests, but is a bit too expensive and had no real extras in terms of innovation. Still, the K7V does offer speed, quality, and performance. Tyan has been the most stable KX133 motherboard in our tests. Its performance and quality have proved once again that this company cares about stability more then anything else. And, as you know from the review, the overclocking part of Trinity K7 is way behind the competition.
The Abit KA7 has everything you could currently wish for from a Athlon motherboard. It is packed with so many features that it will make any computer enthusiast proud. One additional feature that really puts above all of the competition is its overclocking ability. The performance, stability, expansion slots, the Abit KA7 has it all.
Yes, we gave DW3D Best Buy Award to ABIT's KA7 motherboard.
