Gigabyte has been in the business of making motherboards for quite some time now; since 1986 to be exact. They weren't really a name that was held in high regard by Power Users, but with the AMD Thunderbird striking with such force, they rose to the challenge and mass-produced several different varieties of motherboards for it - However, we Overclocking Enthusiasts, are a mighty tough breed to make happy.
Gigabyte has been with AMD Athlon from the start, even using AMD's 750 chipset for their Slot A boards. KX133, KT133, KT133A, KT266, KT266A from VIA have all been on Gigabyte's lists, but one thing has always been lacking; overclocking. Gigabyte tends to stick with the business and workstation market as they have often stated, it is where their biggest sales are. With the market moving towards overclockers, so has Gigabyte with their latest Socket A range of motherboards.
Recently we took a look at the Gigabyte GA-7VRXP motherboard based on the KT333 chipset. The motherboard was a complete masterpiece, while some others had some problems with settings that were available on some boards but not on others.
Gigabyte's last Athlon motherboard was the GA-7VAXP Ultra. This was based on the VIA KT400 chipset. While this board was quite impressive, the KT400 chipset wasn't. VIA's release of the KT400A chipset has put Gigabyte back to work. Gigabyte has put onto the market the new GA-7VAXP-A Ultra KT400A motherboard; will it replace the KT400 board? Let's see.
