Jon "Albinus" Albiez has been as busy as a beaver lately. Up this time around is a review of the Shuttle AV40R Motherboard. It uses that magic combination of the Pentium 4 processor and DDR memory, but does so using the VIA P4X266 chipset. So come on in and see if it's worth a shot at your upgrading dollars.
Ok there's quite a bit of stuff out there today on some new motherboards that are just about to hit the market so here's some pic's and info so 1st over at t-break they have pic's of the MSI's SiS 745 Motherboard and MSI's KT333 Motherboard. Next it's over to OCworkbench for pic's on the ABIT SD7-533 P4 Motherboard and MSI K7N415 Pro (nForce 415-D) Motherboard. Then finally over to X-bit labs for a run down on 4 New Motherboards from Iwill based on Intel i860, i850, i845D and ALi Aladdin P4 chipsets. So go and check them all out but warning for those on dailup the pic's are huge so they will take time to load.
Over at Templin Tech they have their comparison of the SOYO K7V Dragon Plus and DFI AD-70 SR Motherboards up so get on over there and check it out.
Well there's a bit of news today so don't forget to check the next page as well but to make a start, over at Hot Hardware they take a gander at the Acorp 7KT266A Motherboard so head there first and take a look.
The Tech Report checks out the new Shuttle AK35GTR motherboard based on the VIA KT266A chipset but with the new VT8233A Southbridge which brings you a ATA133 IDE controller plus it has onboard ATA133 RAID and 6 channel sound so head on over there to see how it performs.
Those Germans at Hardware-Test are at it again but this time with the Iwill XP333R Motherboard based on the latest ALi Magik 1 chipset that supports 333mhz DDR-ram and ATA133 plus includes a Highpoint 372 RAID controller and a 6 channel sound card onboard.
The Processor Emporium (UK) has a look at the Chaintech CT-7VJDA (KT 266A) Motherboard which left them with an overwhelming impression of a very well engineered board which is a very OEM friendly product whilst not alienating a large portion of the PC enthusiast.
Today OnePC.NET checks out the DFI NB70-SC (i845D) DDR P4 Motherboard which delivers more than 90% of the performance of the i850 board, and even beats it in the 3ds max 4 test so they give it a 9 out of 10.
Cameron "Sov" Johnson has just finished up with another Pentium 4 motherboard for your viewing pleasure. Up today is the Asus P4B266 Motherboard which uses the new Intel i845D chipset and DDR memory. With all this, it should be a pretty good performer, but you may want to take a gander at the results before getting one for yourself.
Lost Circuits goes and checks out the ECS K7VTA3 V. 2.0 (KT266A) Motherboard and found that even as a budget board not geared to the overclocker it was stable and does not have any obvious performance problems but shows that it is geared to the OEM market.
Across the Tasman again at Overclockers NZ they gather all the AMD DDR motherboards that they have reviewed over last few months and decide to have an AMD DDR Motherboards Shootout so head on over the see how the participants stack up against each other.
