Floris Itsme! schrijft als eerste dat er bij AnandTech een review te vinden is van de Asus A7V, een Socket A moederbord gebaseerd op de Via KT133 chipset. Anand is erg tevreden over dit plankje, maar de beste KT133 plank is het net niet: de Abit KT7-Raid verdient die titel dankzij meer features:
ASUS has impressed us yet again with the A7V, but it seems like this round is won by ABIT, mostly because of the features that their KT7-RAID offers mimic those of the A7V, as well as extend beyond what ASUS has chose to present with this board.
In spite of our preference for the KT7-RAID over the A7V, they are both equally capable motherboards, and you'll definitely be happy with either one. In the end it comes down to whether you need the ISA slot that's on the KT7, the RAID support on the KT7-RAID, and value the jumperless nature of the board's SoftMenu III setup or prefer the ASUS name, appreciate having 7 USB ports and like the somewhat lower price of the board since we have noticed that the ABIT boards are currently being priced fairly high.
In any case, if you go with the ABIT KT7-RAID or the ASUS A7V, you're not going to regret it, it all comes down to the little features to determine which board is better suited for your needs.
