Brad from Tweakers Australia has taken a look at the new Abit KX7-333R motherboard featuring the VIA KT333 chipset.
Traditionally ABIT has been renowned for their excellent BIOS revisions that are frequently improved, and they certainly haven't skimped out with the KX7-333R, which is shaping up to be one of the most functional I have come across in a while. ABIT has gone with the Pheonix-Award type BIOS, and has most of the useful CPU options in one convenient menu - SoftMenu III. The SoftMenu provides control for pre-defined CPU Operating Speeds, CPU FSB Clock with a maximum setting of 250MHz in 1MHz increments, Ratio selection for FSB:AGP:PCI that includes 3 options, 3:2:1, 4:2:1 and 5:2:1. Other settings include Multiplier selection up to 13x as well as VCORE, I/O and DDR voltage adjustments. The I/O voltages only range from 3.50V and 3.65V, while VCORE went up to a maximum of 1.85V and DDR voltages ranged from 2.55V to 2.85V.More information at Tweakers Australia.
