Overclockers' Workbench brengt ons een review van de nieuwe MSI K7 Pro Slot-A moederbord van Microstar. Het bordje is nog steeds gebaseerd op de AMD Irongate chipset en bevat verder o.a. 3 DIMM sockets, 6 PCI sloten (1 ISA), on-board sound van Creative Labs en 32 verschillende busspeed settings. Overclockers' Workbench kreeg de K7 Pro stabiel aan de praat met een FSB van 119MHz:
MSI K7 Pro is a very promising board that would really steal the limelight off ASUS K7M which has been around for quite some time.
At this moment of time, I did not find any problems except that the modified Athlon is very unstable and probably don't like to work with it well.
Other than that issue and with the new features built on to the board, it is a great contender for the Athlon market.
Readers might be interested to know that this board will be available by early late January. If you have not decided about which board to get for your newly purchased Athlon, why not give it a thought.
I am sure that in the near future, there will be more players that will come out with even more innovative products as most manufacturers are now eyeing for the Athlon pie.
