Bij GamePC is een review online geplaatst van Soyo's nieuwe Athlon plank, de K7AIA. Dit bordje is nog steeds gebaseerd op de AMD Irongate chipset (met "SuperBypass" feature) en biedt helaas geen support voor FSB overclocking. Daarentegen toont de Soyo K7AIA 100% stabiliteit en heeft hij geen last van rare compatibiliteits bugs. Hieronder wat meer info:
We're happy to see that even being based on a reference design, Soyo somehow managed to tweak performance to get slightly higher benchmarks. While the Asus offers slightly higher performance, it's widely known that the K7M has small bugs that still haven't been worked out that can jeopardize system stability, whereas the Soyo is rock solid.
Even though it doesn't have overclocking features or four USB ports like the Asus board, the Soyo is already one of the (if not the) best Athlon motherboards on the market today. This is the first Slot-A board we've tested that didn't have ANY problems from the get-go, 100% stable, no incompatibilities that we could see. While it took Soyo a while to get this board out, it seems the extra time may be well worth it. This is the most reliable Athlon motherboard we've ever tested, and finally puts the AMD 750/756 platform on the stability level with the 440BX/I820 chipsets. Let's hope Soyo can follow-up on the quality of this board with a KX-133 board out sooner than later.
