Great board but older architecture

CyrixDes, Ciao
16 December 2000
  • Excerpt: "This is one of ABIT's older offerings, being a motherboard for the original Athlons (i.e. in slot format and not the socket Thunderbirds). This has all the specs on it's side and in my experiance is a very solid, stable and good performing motherboard. This board is based on the hugely successful VIA KX133 chipset, which has largely dominated the Athlon boards. As expected it has all the advanced chipset options, supporting both PC100 and ...
  • Pros: good features, UDMA 100 support, Award bios
  • Cons: out of date slot A architecture

  • Excerpt: Over the years and the different makes and Chipsets of boards, the main reason for buying Abit boards has been the fact they offer great overclocking facilities. The KA7 is no different to all the rest. The KA7 features soft menu III which allows alterations to the FSB (Front Side Bus). It also offers a clocking facility on the Processor chip only and not the components. The feature seems to be pretty unique and is great for getting extra performance.

ronaldtee, Ciao

  • Excerpt: "Abit KA 7 is a new motherboard for Athlon chips. It uses VIA k133 chipset and can support DIMM P133 RAM. Its very easy to setup, even for a beginner who would like to try to power of Athlon chips, it can be easily setup without any trouble. The motherboard has no jumper which save the trouble. And for overclocking fans, its specially stable and satisfactory. It has 6 PCI slots, one ISA slot and normal 2 comm ports, one paralle port, 1 AGP and ...

  • Excerpt: I agree with Gah and Guybrush who both put forward the opinion that the Abit board is the best motherboard for Athlons currently, but if I was thinking about buying an Athlon chip and board (which i am!) I would wait for a short while as soon these boards will be obsolete! Please bear with me as the reason for this centres around the AMD chips.

  • Excerpt: Abit is one of the most largest motherboards manufacturer along with ASUS, Tyan and many others. But without any doubt, the Abit motherboard is the most popular motherboard manufacturer among overclockers. This is my first Athlon motherboard, and I'm very happy with it. First of all, this board comes with 6 (that's it: SIX) PCI slots, 1 ISA slot (shared with a PCI) and an AGP slot and NO AMR slots (I personally dislike AMR slots).

Attention!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Summary: La nouvelle version de la KA7 arrive : La KA7-100. Elle intégre toutes les fonctionnalités de la KA7: - 6 PCI - 1 ISA - 1 AGP (4x) - 4 DIMM (100 à 183MHz) - 2 canaux IDE UDMA66 (4 périphériques) - Configuration SoftMenuIII (les doigts dans le nez) Mais voilà, il fallait bien ajouter quelque chose pour faire une évolution. Et là, c'est en fait un révolution. Abit à ajouté à la carte 2 canaux IDE UDMA100 (aussi appelé UDMA66+).
  • Pros: UDMA100
  • Cons: c'est quoi un désavantage?
