Excerpt: Has the wait been worth it? Admittedly, the board isn't exactly new as of this review, but having been extremely busy with the KT266A launches and with some delays getting a sample out of Taiwan, it is here as quickly as possible. Can the KG7 motherboards compete with the new competition that has been thrown in the AMD marketplace since the boards initial launch?
Conclusion: It seems that Abit have entered this class of motherboard market later than the others. Epox have had their 8K7A and 8K7A+ boards out for a while and Asus with the A7M266 which has been out for quite a few months, all based on a hybrid AMD/VIA chipset, utilising AMD761 northbridge and the ubiquitous VIA 686B southbridge.
