The Tweakers Asylum has just posted a review of the AOpen AK77Pro Motherboard. It features the VIA KT266 chipset and support for that good old DDR RAM. here's a snip:
"Taking a quick look at the AK77 Pro you will notice several new designs and features from AOpen that scream "quality". Of course it takes quite a bit more than just cool looking designs and features. You could probably trick out a Pinto to look like a serious sports car, but unless you modify the engine, it's still a flaming pile of Pinto."
Today ASUS announced the release of it's A7V266-E motherboard while Abit done the same with their KR7A motherboard. Both boards are based on VIA's KT266A chipsets.
TECHhard have just put up their review of the ASUS A7N266-V which uses the new nVidia nForce chipset and is the second board based on it that they have reviewed, the first being the MSI K7C12-PRO.
There are some nuisance popups so have your killers ready.
With all the lawsuits flying and the contraversy of the new P4X266 chipset, it's nice to see some motherboard makers have the nerve to create a board using it. Go check out HotHardware and see their take on the Shuttle AV40 Motherboard. here's a clip:
"Here the P4X266 chipset along with DDR SDRAM, shows that it is definitely a viable and competitive alternative to i850 board with RDRAM. One would argue that, for the cost differential between the two platforms, the P4X266 and the AV40 is a better value for gamers."
