Expert Review

  • Conclusion: As I mentioned earlier, one of the main factors that led me to choose this board was its ability to support both SDRAM and DDRAM. DDRAM, or Double Datarate RAM, theoretically provides a marked improvement over the old SDRAM.

ECS K7S-5A DDR Motherboard Review

6 October 2001
  • Conclusion: As the results on the previous screen show, this is a speedy board. The SiS735 chipset, combined with a fast T-Bird and DDRAM, turns in some very impressive numbers. Benchmarks aside, the performance of the system on a totally subjective scale is impressive.
  • Pros: Fast and stable, Awesome price! Can be found for around $60 if you look in the right places, Enough integrated peripherals to get you up and running quickly, ATA/100 supported out of the box, Can use old SDRAM as long as you need to, then switch to DDRAM when you're ready
  • Cons: Tight spaces right where you need room, esp. the CPU area, Only 2 DIMM slots can be used at a time, no mixing of SDRAM and DDRAM, VERY limited tweakability. This is not an overclocker's board., Yo Mamma
