Test and Conclusion

This content was originally featured on Amdmb.com and has been converted to PC Perspective’s website. Some color changes and flaws may appear.

On to the benchmarks:

Test System Setup
CPU AMD Athlon Thunderbird 900 MHz
Memory 1 x 128 PC133 CAS2 Mushkin
Hard Drive 20.5 GB Western Digital 7200 RPM
Video Card Hercules 3D Prophet II 64MB (GeForce 2 GTS)
Video Drivers Detonator 5.30
Operating System Win 98 SE
Revision 1.0

Test Results
  Content Creation Winstone 2000
Thunderbird 900 on K7T Pro 31.5
Thunderbird 900 on Asus A7V 32.0
Thunderbird 900 on FIC AZ11 31.2

As I mentioned before the benchmarks were shown, if AMD has taken the steps to prevent simple overclocking of the multiplier (and I believe they will), then the advantages of have an A7V will become obsolete. The numbers clearly show that MSI K7T Pro motherboard can hold its own in a testing environment or situation. If you don’t have a desire to overclock, or have a processor that is already locked by AMD and unable to be easily modified, this motherboard should definitely be on your “Compare” list.
