However, the results are quantifiably different. Vcore voltage is adjustable in 0. It seems as if Via are more than content with the performance of the KTA chipset as no major performance enhancements are evident with the KT More of a theoretical test as no-one we know plays at this resolution. As with previous USB 2.

Firstly we can see that it took a long time, seconds isn’t quick by any stretch of the imagination.

The close-knit performance from various motherboard manufacturers highlighted the maturity of the chipset, rarely did we see a poor motherboard. The silver North bridge fan adds an element of class to the package. Layout Starting at the top and working our aydio down, we see the ATX power jt3 is located at the at the top left of the board. We see a comprehensive list of features that allow one to experiment with overclocking.

If you’re looking for a Socket A motherboard to replace one from an older platform, or are seeking one that will give you maximal performance, then the MSI should most definitely make it onto your shortlist. Expect offerings from all the major manufacturers to hit the retail shelves shortly.

We tried to engineer a situation where stability would be compromised. DDR theoretically offer 2. We ran the benchmark at Fastest and xx32 Quality.


The greater memory throughput available allows the Athlon to truly flex its muscles in this test.

We’d hoped the KT chipset would have support for this. Windows XP installed without incident. We tried the test at different CPU speeds and found the boards tied for performance. To give us an idea of how the differency memory sub-systems handle a real game, we benchmarked the popular Serious Sam 2.

The KT is slightly faster and should come-to-market at about the same price. We can look back to the Sisoft Sandra unenhanced memory benchmarks for an explanation of the results. The ample bandwidth afforded by DDR seems more suited to the role. Here we use LAME 3. Subjective listening revealed that whilst not on a par with Nforce’s excellent APU, the on-board solution was more than adequate for general Windows duty, we’d say it was on a par with C-Media’s excellent 87xx series of codecs.

More of a theoretical test as no-one we know plays at this resolution. Overall, we’re pretty pleased with the layout of the board. We’re using Xmpeg 2.

The connectors for the various brackets are grouped close together toocolour-coded for simple ajdio. MSI don’t give you a motherboard so much as a package.

We removed the heatsink and were glad to see MSI had the care and attention to use thermal paste as a conduit between the Northbridge and heatsink. The demo automatically generates statistics after each run.

To measure the limitation of our board, we used a factory-unlocked 1.

The impressive overclocking options coupled with our new XP processor from AMD ensured that we would be furnished with a mt3 overclock. We’d hazard a guess that the motherboard platform is irrelevant for this test. Being multiplier-locked, we resorted to raising the FSB one Mhz per time.

AMD have been having a rather good time of late. We overclocked the processor, ran different modules of RAM, used the most aggressive memory timings available. We ran at xx32 Normal preferences, sound was disabled.
