On to the benchmarks. The K7VTA3 does not support reading temperatures directly off of the Athlon XP’s die; instead it resorts to an external thermistor like most motherboards. The test systems’ Windows desktops were set at x in bit color at an 85Hz screen refresh rate. The VIA KT brings up support for a memory technology specification that has not even been written yet.

With AC’97 rev 2. The sheer volume of motherboards and the very low prices that they sell for make ECS a formidable competitor; ECS has even forced ASUS to pursue a new low-cost motherboard brand of their own in order to compete.

Using the reference boards will allow a true chipset-to-chipset comparison. What to watch for in the test results As with all chipset reviews, we’re testing to see which souns fastest, but that doesn’t mean you should expect wide variances in performance. I seriously doubt Soyo would name two very different boards the “Dragon Kt333-8233.


No need to give up the Line in and Mic on the back of the board now. Searching on pricewatch came up with several vendors. Jesus christ, I can’t believe they’re doing that. Im still wondering if the DDR Voltage is ommitted.

Talk is cheap, and while many times, such as with video cards, opinions on performance are very subjective, this is not the case with a chipset built for motherboards; they either deliver or they do not.

And in real-world use, even larger margins of victory are probably going to be imperceptible. While you are seeing lots of “PC” advertised, the simple fact is that all of it at this time is simply overclocked PC or DDR Jun 9, Posts: Despite of the support for 6 USB 2.
