As one of the last boards to appear on the KT266A scene, the KR7A had better show the benefits of a few extra weeks in development. Many of the other manufacturers have already released KT266 boards. Do note that Abit only has a KR7A and no KR7. It seems that Abit has gotten wise to VIAís production methods. For the last year VIA has released a second version of the same chipset only a scant month or two after the initial release. VIA has started to go out of its way to market the first chipset as the lower-end version; but weíve yet to see a price difference, at the release, delivered to the consumer as a result of this. Add to that, historically what company releases a low-end item before their high-end?
But I digress, back to Abit. Traditionally the board of choice for the overclocker, Abit hasnít fallen off the ball in the release of this product. The features within will make most drool. Some of whatís not there will make most happy. So letís get on with it.
Abit KR7A RAID
DIMM sockets - up to 3GB unbuffered/ 4GB registered modules
VIA has now released the KT133, KT133A, KT266, KT266A, P4X266, and the P4X266A. None of which had anything more than memory adjustments. Fortunately the KT333 and KT333A will have much bigger differences. The KT333A is supposed to have 8x AGP and much-improved bandwidth between the North Bridge and South Bridge.
