Anand Lal Shimpi heeft het tweede deel van zijn KX133 review op zijn site gemikt. In dit deel wordt de review compleet gemaakt met o.a. OpenGL benchmarks onder NT4 en wat meer Quake / Unreal / Expendable scores. Vanwege de nieuwe nVidia NT4 drivers is de KX133 setup een heel stuk sneller geworden in de Specviewperf tests, het verschil t.o.v. van de AMD 750 plankjes met SyperBypass is tot wel 50%!
The next release of NVIDIA's Detonator drivers for Windows NT will feature the performance enhancements and optimizations that propelled our KX133 test bed to the top of the charts under the SPECviewperf tests. For those of you that own KX133 setups now and need the performance boost immediately, you can easily find the beta drivers online if you search around a bit.
As more KX133 based boards hit the streets, we can hope that the performance will improve as manufacturers begin to tweak the BIOS files more for speed. The only thing there is to be worried about is if motherboard manufacturers decide that promoting their KX133 products isn't worth the potential risks caused by VIA's competitors. If you remember, this was the case with the earliest AMD 750 based motherboards and their manufacturers, while we are expecting things to change with the KX133, there will still be a few frightened manufacturers, let's hope those frightened few don't become the majority this time around.
