The words that spring to this reviewer’s mind are stability, quality and reliability. Will the situation be mirrored in Serious Sam 2?. Part of Asus’ reputation is built on producing extremely stable motherboards. One interesting thing to note is that Asus seem to over-supply actual voltage. It also sports an upgraded South bridge which is now ATA compliant. Strong performances all-round here.

The Asus at Mhz takes an expected lead in this test. We’re somewhat under-whelmed by the performance asys the Asus with the stock XP. Part of Asus’ reputation is built on producing extremely stable motherboards. We’re running the Valley of the Jaguar Timedemo included in the publicly available demo. Here’s a quick look at the CPU adjustments available. When Asus is mentioned with aound to motherboards, what do you think?.
Benchmarks Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way. Everything is stowed away neatly. We’ll try the test at Fastest to garner an idea of total throughput and then at Quality to represent something that mirrors actual playing resolutions.

We see three DDR banks that are thoughtfully placed. This sound chip capable of 5.
Asus, like most other manufacturers, simply replaced their KT offering awus substituting the more efficient KTA North bridge in place of the older KT North bridge chipset. When set to 1.
The board packaging is subtle and not completely over-the-top like some. The modes can be toggled by changing the position of the JEN jumper located at the bottom right of the board.
ASUS A7V266-E – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT266A Series
Impressive results from a stock-clocked Geforce 3 Ti We could successfully run our XP 13x on the board without any problems, an upgraded BIOS may be needed for future processors.
We ran the board continuously for well over 16 hours with Prime95 and SETI both taxing the system simultaneously.
FSB adjustment can siund made in 1Mhz increments from – A7v626 respectively. As has been mentioned above, the board can be set to jumper-free mode by changing the position of one jumper.
VIA KT266A Motherboard Roundup – January 2002
However, we at Hexus expect a motherboard to perform well at stock speeds, we look at motherboard manufacturers to provide that something extra, whether it be with new, innovative features or with outstanding performance. Asus have always impressed me with their presentation and the A7VE is no different. By reducing the multiplier to 8x, we were able to hit a stable FSB of Mhz. Let’s have a look at the results. However, even when set to jumper-free, you still have to manually change the DDR voltage by jumpers.
One interesting thing to note is that Asus seem to over-supply actual voltage. Let’s have a look at the specification in a little more detail. Overall, we’re pretty pleased with the layout, the board looks good and everything bar the floppy port is located with thought. The memory throughput is a far more interesting comparison.
Let’s see how they shaped up. Another fan header sits just to the right of the floppy port.
Can you say consistent? We also disliked the inability to be able to turn the RAID controller off, this increased the boot up times by at least 10 seconds.
Although latency is cut in half, you do sacrifice some security as RAID 0, by it’s very nature, has no redundancy. Both systems were configured for maximum performance. We’ve found this combination to be the most stable in our stress tests. Let’s move onto another area of media encoding that has historically been heavily reliant on memory throughput, namely DVD encoding.
