ABIT VT7 Motherboard - VIA PT880 Done Right

We have a review of the ABIT VT7 motherboard today which is based on VIA's PT880 chipset for Pentium 4. We compare against motherboards from MSI and Gigabyte which are also based on the same Dual Channel chipset. The VT7 is ABIT's answer to budget yet overclockable computing with the VIA chipset.

Introduction

 

ABIT's motherboard offerings are, in short, few and far between. While ABIT does a good gob to try and include every chipset of value in their portfolio, unlike companies like Gigabyte and the likes, there is usually only one motherboard based on these chipsets, unless they are an extremely good overclocker or have some extra merit.

 

VIA's PT880 chipset for the Pentium 4 platform has come out as one of the big guns. Designed to take on Intel's 875P chipset, it has thus proven to be more of the Intel 865PE killer. Designed to use Dual Channel memory, something VIA has been apposed to or a long time (since the introduction from its main competitors SiS, Intel and nVidia) it has been a necessity that VIA adopt the Dual Channel memory standards for optimal performance against its competitors.

 

Today we take a look at ABIT's take on the PT880 chipset. Let's see what ABIT adds to the party as they take on the Dual Channel Pentium 4 chipset from VIA.
