This makes the KTA chipset a very attractive option. Performance doesn’t vary especially much with the new KTA boards, they all essentially use the same components, the KTA and the new VIA B Southbridge which has native support for ATA transfer rates, the Abit does however offer lots of features to improve memory performance, these features aren’t implemented on all KT boards, and yet again Abit leads the pack in this area, the key area where Abit seem to lead is in the swift rectification of problems with the boards, usually this is a new BIOS release which fixes and improves speed and offers extra features. Click to find out more. For a final gaming benchmark I tried out 3dmark and tried to get the highest possible score. In advanced Chipset features, the memory timing was set to Turbo, Interleave was set to 4 way and CAS latency set to 2, these are the main options for performance setting, they only work with decent quality branded memory, such as Crucial or Mushkin, with cheaper spec memory you may not be able to turn on all the performance settings and still maintain stability. I recently got one of Abit’s current socket A motherboards, from past experience with the Abit KT7 RAID the previous version I knew I was in for a treat, Abit motherboards have built up an enviable reputation for building extra features and options on their motherboards. I must say I like Abit motherboards a lot, just about every motherboard I’ve had in the past few years, has been an Abit, I’ve gone from the BH6 through to the BE6 and now on with the KT7 series and they’ve all performed, and kept of performing consistently over the years.

Hardware monitoring – Including Fan speed, Voltages, It7a environment temperature 4. Quite a few KTA motherboards have arrived at the AnandTech Labs, and as usual, we will walk you through all of them and let you know which one is the best.

When was the last time you upgraded your PC? For a final gaming benchmark I tried out 3dmark and tried to get the highest possible score. We loved the board for its impressive performance and overclocking ability.

VIA stated to us that the mirror chip is the newest revision of the KTA, the ones without the mirror are earlier revision of the KTA chipset, so will this make a difference?

This presents problems when trying to install large heatsinks such as orb coolers or some of the larger Alpha coolers such as the PEP66T. Previous Page Next Page. I could run a whole bunch of abiy of the board, but since I just reviewed the whole OcUK bundle last week, it seems somewhat pointless so I’ll just show you the most popular Sandra benchmarks.

Via have sussed this out an now the KTA chipset ot7a regarded as a high performance motherboard chipset. Aabit other tech and computer products like this over at Amazon Canada’s website. Find other tech and computer products like this over at Amazon’s website. I ran it with a MHz Athlon Thunderbird CPU and it easily got the Tbird up to MHz, obviously this has a lot to do with the choice of CPU, but the Abit board with all it’s tweaks offers the best possible chance of overclocking the CPU and running it successfully, Abit have been loudly touting the 3 phase power circuits built on the board whilst over manufacturers stick with a 2 phase voltage circuit design, the 3 phase power design is supposed to offer better stability under the high current loads of the latest CPU’s and especially the overclocked Tbird’s, and it also offers much better heat dissipation, throughout the boards components.

In the picture on the left we can see the KTA Northbridge. While very few video cards use this slot it would be nice tk7a see it there when the cards come out using this slot possibly some GF3 video cards.

Overall RAID 0 makes the computer feel quicker and more responsive in loading applications and large games, the abih downside is the it7a expense and the bit of extra time on Windows bootup as the RAID array is initialized.

If you wait for the picture above to load you will see the memory benchmarks are taken at the various different settings and finally with the FSB maxed out at MHZ with all the various options in the Abit BIOS turned on for extra memory performance.

The only bit where RAID doesn’t seem to increase the performance is in the random read and write tests, though these results are certainly no lower than a single drive, the buffered and sequential transfer rates are much higher than with a single drive. Just about everyone jt7a games so lets see how the Abit copes with a few gaming benchmarks.

Click here for a slightly more thorough rundown on RAID. Index Talking about the design The Features: In another trend setting move Abit where among the first to include Jumperless setup, all the functions of the motherboard are available within the SoftMenu in the BIOS, this makes setting up the Abit motherboards as painless and easy as possible, fumbling about for tiny jumpers and poring over board diagram layouts trying to find hidden jumper JP23 has become a thing of the past.

By reading this site you agree to our cookie policy. We have discussed before that with KT chipset neither the heat sink nor lt7a fan is necessary for the North Bridge, even though the chip gets relatively hot during heavy usage. Abit where among the first to fit a Fan on the Northbridge chipset, they set the trend, now heatsink and fans are common on nearly every recent motherboard Northbridge controller.

The fan keeps the Northbridge cooler and adds stability at the higher bus speeds offered on the newer boards. Memory performance and bandwidth make quite a large difference to the whole computer’s performance and benchmark results. Supports up to 1. This is one place where the Abit really shines above other socket A boards on the market it offers lots of tweaking possibilities.

Performance doesn’t vary especially much with the new KTA boards, they all essentially use the same components, the KTA and the new VIA B Southbridge which has native support for ATA transfer rates, the Abit does however offer lots of features to improve memory performance, these features aren’t implemented on all KT boards, and yet again Abit leads the pack in this area, the key area where Abit seem to lead is in the swift rectification kt7aa problems with the boards, usually this is a new BIOS release which fixes and improves speed and offers extra features.

I do like this board a lot though, it offers overclockers all the facilities we need to get the best out of the system, and you cant really expect much more from a motherboard, this along with Abit’s experience in this market and there continual bug fixing BIOS updates and web presence ensures that the Abit KT7 series motherboards are winners in my eyes.
