Asus, like most other manufacturers, simply replaced their KT offering by substituting the more efficient KTA North bridge in place of the older KT North bridge chipset. BIOS duty is handled by Award. Impressive results all-round Let’s pay a visit to page 1 of our benchmarker’s Bible and try the old favourite that is Quake 3. Overall, we’re pretty pleased with the layout, the board looks good and everything bar the floppy port is located with thought. We know that many of our readers are interested in SETI.

A similar story to the Pifast results, one that should come as no surprise by now. We see our recurring theme present here.
Simply unplug the memory and away you go. Overall, we’re pretty pleased with the layout, the board looks good and everything bar the floppy port is located with thought.
Shifting large amounts of data from system memory to processor is the name of the game here, Let’s see how they compare when racing to calculate Pi to 10 million decimal places.
It also sports an upgraded South bridge which is now ATA compliant. We feel that Asus have done a pretty good job with the A7VE. One seemingly annoying feature is the inability to manually turn off the RAID ports when booting. We’re using Xmpeg 2. If, for any reason, you cannot load Windows and have to switch the machine off, it will then next restart by automatically clearing CMOS by itself, thereby ensuring that BIOS defaults are loaded.
All benchmarks were conducted at xx32 85Hz with vertical sync disabled. A7v626e we’re being a bit over-critical, but we’ve seen some truly excellent motherboards come through the door recently.
On-board sound is asud something of a renaissance of late. This boded well for our overclocking efforts. We see three DDR banks that are thoughtfully placed.
Features and Installation W7v266e a brief glimpse reveals that Asus have loaded the board with some rather nice goodies. Both systems were configured for maximum performance. Top marks to Asus for once again producing an impeccably behaving motherboard. This feature is quite handy if you push the board too far.
The layout of the board is generally good with the exception of an oddly placed floppy drive port. As part of our stability testing, we ran SETI.
Here’s a quick rundown of our test system and benchmarks used.
VIA KT266A Motherboard Roundup – January 2002
We could successfully run our XP 13x on the board without any problems, an upgraded BIOS may be needed for future processors. Pifast calculates the constant Pi to X million decimal places using the fastest method possible.
The fact that certain jumpers still have to be manipulated is a negative point. Using slightly stricter settings resulted in failed boot-ups.
Review: Asus A7VE RAID Motherboard – Mainboard –
Part of Asus’ reputation is built on producing extremely stable motherboards. Let’s have a look at the specification in a little more detail. We mentioned that the Asus seems to over-supply voltage assus any given setting.
It appears as if the better memory optimisations, coupled with running memory asynchronously, really help the MSI here. Another fan header sits just to the right of the floppy port. Let’s see how they shaped up. Impressive results all-round Let’s pay a visit to page 1 of our benchmarker’s Bible and try the old favourite that is Quake 3. We’ll next turn our attention to Pifast. Here’s a quick look at our overclocking result.
The board satisfies it’s probable OEM target market pretty well. Unlike on some other boards, you can remove the memory without having to remove the AGP card, there is just enough space for you to do so.
