Anand heeft een hele test van videoplanken op Super Socket 7 mammaplanken inelkaar geknutseld.
Since the first day of the official release of the Super7 standard, the efforts of chipset manufacturers Acer Labs Incorporated and VIA Technologies have been lack luster in comparison to their big brother, Intel, in terms of chipset compatibility. One could make the argument that due to Intelís incredible size as a company, it is in the best interest of the market to make sure the best selling products are compatible with Intelís chipsets; the responsibility falls on ALi and VIA to make sure that their chipsets are equally as compatible. In the past, ALi and VIA chipset solutions have been at fault for compatibility problems with the latest AGP graphics accelerators due to the nature of the AGP support provided by their two respective chipsets. Only recently have most of the "kinks" in the software drivers been ironed out and the level of compatibility of Super7 motherboards and the latest graphics cards been increased. Unfortunately there remains another limitation of the nature of the Super7/Socket-7 standard that has kept the lives of gamers who own such computers a little less happy than those running equally priced Celeron systems on the Intel side of things. The second tragic flaw of the standard? Poor 3DNow! support by video card manufacturers.
Mij lijkt een C300a toch handiger, gezien de (incompatibiliteits) problemen die hij beschrijft.
