Onze kameraden van Ars Technica mikten een Asus K7M en Athlon 750 bij elkaar en verwerkten hun ervaringen tot een gecombineerde review. Proc en plank functioneerden probleemloos en konden zelfs straigth vanuit het BIOS richting 106MHz bus geklokt worden, wat resulteerde in een kloksnelheid van 795MHz:
After playing with this CPU for a couple of weeks I have to admit that I'm sad to see it go. I've never had horsepower like this to play with
. This CPU makes me think of a Ferrari--it's for the people who just have to have the fastest widget on the market, and price is no object. The 750 is a monster of a CPU in the Athlon arena. Price-wise it's a bit intimidating, today poking about at around $590 (1/25/00). If performance sans overclocking is your goal, this is the CPU for you. There's not an Intel CPU out there that can really touch this thing without the aid of overclocking.
[...] While I'm at this, I'd like to officially bump the ASUS K7M up to the Ars Athlon board of choice. My previous complaints about it's floating point inability have been corrected, and after I got the quirks ironed out I just could not shake this board. I went to town to attempt to crash the board, and it put up with everything I threw at it and more. Whether it was looping Q3 demos, while running SETI and transferring multiple 100MB zip files to the hard drive, the board ran like a champ. I remain a huge fan of the FIC SD-11 and it's no doubt a great board if you get one of the stable ones, but with this latest BIOS revision, the ASUS board comes out on top, and it's got overclocking potential thrown it to boot.
