You have to be pushing the current memory bandwidth limits on a previous chipset to really see the difference. POV-Ray streams plenty of data from main memory to the CPU and back to perform its intensive calculations required to render our test scene. Media Control Devices Manufacturer: As always though, it all depends on the applications that you run and whether they will be able to take advantage of the new speed increases. The software integrates with the screensaver to provide extra security. Numeric data processor Manufacturer:

Introduction MSI were kind enough to courier me their latest, not-even-on-the-website, motherboard for review, the K7T Pro2.

Otherwise, thumbs up to MSI. With 3DMark testing overall CPU, memory and graphics performance and Sandra providing the synthetic numbers, we have pretty much all bases covered.

SmartKey is also a good value addition to the K7T Pro2 package. The sound files would not play until that was done.

So how does the layout of the K7T Pro2 stack up? I must stress that the layout of motherboard is pure personal taste and some problem item in one case might be perfect in another.

Before we get to the benchmarks, let’s take a look at the test system. It’s a nice addition and gives you an extra piece of mind and seems to work well. If you are into media encoding such as MP3 encoding or the creation of DivX movies you’ll be happy with the new speed. Also enable “Advanced Controls”. Standard floppy disk drives PNP Service: Software is also installed on the operating system that stops the OS from functioning properly if the correct SmartKey isn’t detected.


This means new motherboard designs using V-MAP family chips are quick and relatively painless to implement.

The inclusion of things like USB2. Windows 98, while having little testing on this motherboard, seems to be OK.

So there we have them, the numbers most people mis be looking for. Applications that shift a lot of data between main memory and the CPU will be the obvious benefactors with the KTA. Let’s start with Sandra first off: From the diagram, we can also see the VT Southbridge implements AC’97 and MC’97 audio and modem facilities of which the manufacturer of a motherboard mzi this chip provides the headers and support for.

I didn’t install the extra Windows software component due to it being a review motherboard but rest assured the hardware side of things works well.

Standard system devices PNP Service: Also still no windows sounds. The notable additions include the USB 2. Was a few extra under it. Even if they were wrong that would not expain why the sohnd sounds don’t come over speakers. It’s nice to see different colours sounc used on motherboard PCB’s to make a change from the usual green.


The following error or errors occurred while this message: Standard monitor types Status: I’m very hopeful that a newer revision of the BIOS for the board will extract even more performance and bring things up to speed on this test setup.

Finally before we hit the pretty pictures, the tests are performed at the default system speed of Mhz 9 x and Mhz 9 x showing the improvements to be gained both in clock speed and memory bandwidth via a higher front side bus clock.

Is there something physical or in the Bios k7tt266 I would need to change?

I could be wrong however. Three operating systems, Windows 98, Windows and Windows XP were installed without any problems. My bios at present is set to the default. I have tried different speakers etc to see if it was external but no go. Legacy Audio Drivers Manufacturer:
