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 PC133.
  • Pros: good features, UDMA 100 support, Award bios
  • Cons: out of date slot A architecture

Abit KA7 Slot A Motherboard

Andy0468, Ciao
15 December 2000
  • Excerpt: The Abit KA7-100 motherboard is one of the latest offerings from the Taiwan based company. Based around the Via KX133 Chipset, the board supports AMD's Athlon processot with it's slot A architechture. Unusually for a KX133 board, the KA7 has 4 DIMM slots allowing a maximum of 1Gb of system memory to be installed. All the other expected features are available - 5 PCI slots, a legacy ISA slot, and an AGP slot that, thanks to the KX133 chipset, supports 4xAGP.
  • Pros: Easy of setup, 'Tweakability'
  • Cons: Possibly unstable dependant on memory

Stable and fast motherboard

  • 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 4 DIMM RAM slots.

Abit KA7: Qualité et évolution au rendez-vous

Luckyx, Dooyoo
4 November 2001
  • Excerpt: Avec ses 6 slots PCI, 1 ISA, 1 AGP et 4 DIMM. L'Abit KA7 est bien pourvue.Elle supporte (en plus de sa rivale MSI 6195) l' AGP 4x, le bus 133 Mhz ainsi que la SDRAM PC133 ; cependant en terme de performances, ce gain ne se fait pas sentir.
  • Pros: Idéale pour l'overclocking
  • Cons: Son prix

Abit : Une valeur sûr !

marcassincorp, Ciao
28 October 2000
  • Summary: Pour ceux qui souhaiterais faire l'acquisition d'une carte mère pour Athlon (Slot A), l'Abit KA7-100 est faîtes pour vous ! J'en possède moi même une et j'en suis très content ! On peut régler toutes les fréquences de 1 en 1 pour le bus ! Malheureusement le coefficient multiplicateur est bridé sur les Athlon -:(( . Mais bon ! J'ai passé mon Athlon 650 à 800 sans problème ! La carte mère résiste à tous c'est dément !
  • Pros: Fiabilité à toutes épreuve  !
  • Cons: Prix ( mais bon c'est pour dire qques choses )

ABit KA7

fluche, Ciao
8 September 2000
  • Summary: Les fans d'overclocking le savent, Abit est l'un des meilleurs, si pas le meilleur fabriquant de cartes-mères dans ce domaine. C'est donc en toute logique que nous avons vu grand quand Abit a annoncé en grande pompe la sortie d'une carte-mère Slot A bâtie autour du nouveau chipset made in VIA : le KX133. Abit, au contraire d'Asus et d'autres, n'a pas eu peur d'afficher clairement son produit.
  • Pros: Overclocking, stabilité
  • Cons: Performances
