Lost Circuits heeft een review gepost van de MSI 5184 Super 7 moederplank.
To spin the thread back to the 5169, MSI, one of Taiwan’s many computer manufacturers has always produced high end motherboards. Still, high-end prices may have been one of the reasons why this board never gained the popularity it deserved, considering the outstanding performance at the time of its debut. However, now, following the trend towards higher bus speeds, MSI decided to release yet another version of a SS7 AT form factor board and, a big surprise here, in this case they went with the VIA MVP3 chipset. On paper (or screen), the new release MSI 5184 looks very appealing, baby AT form factor, supported bus speeds up to 133 MHz, 4 PCI slots and everything from MSI, that is, sort of guaranteed to work.
Considering the fact that some grades of the VIA MVP3 chipset are working quite well at the 124 MHz bus speed setting, as demonstrated by FIC several months ago, one ought to be curious what kind of magic trick MSI has pulled out of the hat to get this and the next higher setting at 133 MHz to work.
