Anand heeft een roundup gepost van 11 Athlon moederborden, waarvan 5 met de VIA KX133 chipset. Onder de deelnemers bevinden zich de AOpen AK72, Asus K7M, Asus K7V-RM, Epox 7KXA, FIC SD-11, Gigabyte GA-7IX, Gigabyte GA-7VM, Microstar MS-6167, Microstar MS-6195 K7Pro, Soyo SY-K7AIA en de Tyan Trinity K7 S2380. Van dit rijtje werd het Asus K7V-RM MicroATX plankje qua stabiliteit als beste bevonden:
The basic conclusion of this roundup is obviously that a motherboard based on the AMD 750 platform, regardless of how attractive a solution, wouldn’t be as wise of an investment as a newer KX133 motherboard, especially since there are good KX133 based solutions out there.
[...] As far as KX133 motherboards go, the pick out of this roundup goes to the ASUS K7V-RM because of its superior stability and quality when compared to the rest of the KX133 motherboards. Unfortunately, for most users, having 3 PCI slots simply isn’t enough. Provided that the K7V, the standard ATX version of the K7V-RM, performs identically to its microATX sibling in all areas, then that would be the board to get. But since we have yet to test it first hand, we cannot make the hands down recommendation, but if you’re willing to take the risk, our money is on the K7V.
