This is definitely the best overclocking nForce 2 motherboard. The company has two boards in the top ten and 4. Also the box gets a face lift. He managed a reference clock of At FSB, we had no problems at all.

ASUS has three boards in the top ten and 5.
Motherboard Memory Lane: AMD Socket A, Abit NF7-S V2.0 and AMD Athlon 2500+
He managed a reference clock of Doing straight out of the box is an amazing feat in itself. Unfortunately there were some features missing that hard core enthusiast wanted. The backside proudly displays the available technologies, and the product label gives the revision number as well. Cipset we do see a change is the new Northbridge chip.
To many enthusiasts surprise, v1.
Find More Motherboards Articles. I’m sure there were other issues ablt the revisions fixed, but for the most part each revision was substantially better. Finally we come to the classic SuperPi 32M benchmark, an important benchmark in terms of historical relevance.
ABIT NF7-S – 2.0 – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – nForce2 SPP
In the Socket A era, we find the enthusiast segment to be quite different with Abit proving to be the motherboard manufacturer of choice with overclockers on HWBOT. Print Version Of Article. It was manufactured using a nm 0.
Here is a quick bit of info directly from the ABIT website. Watch our Tech Videos. Although raw CPU frequencies are not really treated as true benchmarks today, they remain an important performance metric for most overclockers. The VIA KT v.20 KT may well have been the most popular in terms of units shipped globally, abkt it lacked the necessary performance features that overclockers craved.
We have not tested any other chippset for the AMD platform that were able v2. do this until now. Most notably were the four mounting holes around the CPU socket to use beefier heatsinks, and watercooling, as well as audio and data corruption issues. It supported a range of K7 architecture AMD processors and core designs that spanned the period from to You may think that 4 revisions since the NF7 was unleashed in November may be a bit much, each revision has brought excellent features and significant features to the table.
Return next week when we will focus on the AMD Socket platform and the motherboards, chips and scores that defined that particular era. CPU Frequency Although raw CPU frequencies are not really treated as true benchmarks today, they remain an important performance metric for most overclockers.
Socket A motherboards supported a broad number of chipset designs that included the VIA KT and Nvidia nForce Ultra series, both popular choices with motherboard manufacturers.
Today we continue our Mother Memory Lane series, shifting our focus chpiset to the beginning of the last decade, to a time when AMD had the upper hand against Intel in terms of raw performance. Here we see the newer stepping of the Southbridge, and the version on the label.
Motherboard Memory Lane: AMD Socket A, Abit NF7-S V and AMD Athlon +
The nForce Ultra was most popular with overclockers due to its ability reach higher clock speeds with independent CPU, memory and AGP overclocking. At FSB, we had no problems at all. By Chhipset technology, the NF7-S supports Real-time audio encoding delivering up to simultaneous audio streams makes games and applications come to life.

Email Article To Friend. Our AMD series of articles kicks off with the classic Socket Aa CPU socket and platform which many us will recall with fondness, not least because it also involved some memorably overclockable processors.
Barton core processors tempted enthusiasts with the promise of better performance gains thanks to a larger MB L2 cache and the prospect of a higher MHz FSB.
OK, all the technicalities are out of the way, onto the good stuff In a nutshell, that’s where we are at today.
