Albatron KX600S Pro Motherboard - VIA KT600 Lives On - Conclusion

We have the Albatron KX600S Pro motherboard on the test bench today. It is based on VIA's KT600 chipset for the Athlon XP processor. Albatron has provided a value based motherboard with overclocking on par with the likes of ASUS and ABIT.

Conclusion

 

In all, the AMD Athlon XP platform is far from dead with few AMD Athlon XP users making the migration to 64bit at this stage. It still seems like the KT600 chipset will be a long term product as far as VIA is concerned.

 

For Albatron, it just gets better. This motherboard is extremely small, fitting it to just about any budget case. It comes equipped with fast Ethernet for home networking and broadband, a basic 5.1 audio controller is included to give you digital vibrant sound and the overclocking which is by far one of the best we have seen on a budget based motherboard, up there with the likes of ASUS and ABIT.

 

Overall Albatron has only shown its true support for overclockers even in their budget motherboards. This is why we have given this motherboard our "MUST HAVE" Best Value Award.
