For a final gaming benchmark I tried out 3dmark and tried to get the highest possible score. In another trend setting move Abit where among the first to include Jumperless setup, all the functions of the motherboard are available within the SoftMenu in the BIOS, this makes setting up the Abit motherboards as painless and easy as possible, fumbling about for tiny jumpers and poring over board diagram layouts trying to find hidden jumper JP23 has become a thing of the past.

Phew with that little bit about RAID over lets see what it means for your computer and the all important Benchmarks.

I do like this board a lot though, it offers overclockers all the facilities we need to get the best out of the system, and you cant really expect much more from a motherboard, this along with Abit’s experience in this market and there continual bug fixing BIOS updates and web presence ensures that the Abit KT7 series motherboards bait winners in my eyes. Fri Oct 12, 2: RAID 0 stripping mode for boosting performance 4. Memory performance and bandwidth make quite a large difference to the whole computer’s performance and benchmark results.

Fri Oct 12, 8: Jul 5, Posts: Overall RAID 0 makes the computer feel quicker and more responsive in loading applications and large games, the only downside is the extra k7a and the bit of extra time on Windows bootup as the RAID array is initialized. No, create an account now. Do you already have an account?


I must say I like Abit motherboards a lot, just about every motherboard I’ve had in the past few years, has been an Abit, I’ve gone from the BH6 through to the BE6 and now on with the KT7 series and they’ve all performed, and kept of performing consistently over the years.

Can anyone confirm this beyond the one source? For a final gaming benchmark I tried out 3dmark and tried to get the highest possible score.


Aug 27, Posts: Magoo, can you please post here when your Athlon XP arrives to let us know whether it works? Okay so I know my mobo is an abit, but Just about everyone plays games so lets see how the Abit copes with a few gaming benchmarks. Join the community here. I can’t remember where I saw it, but my cloudy mind remembers it was somehow related to Azzo computers.

I ran it with a MHz Athlon Thunderbird CPU and it easily got the Tbird up to MHz, obviously this has a lot to do with the choice of CPU, but the Abit board with all it’s tweaks offers the best possible chance of overclocking the CPU and running it successfully, Abit have been loudly touting the 3 phase power circuits built on the board whilst over manufacturers stick with a 2 phase voltage circuit design, the 3 phase power design is supposed to offer better stability under the high current loads of the latest CPU’s and especially the overclocked Tbird’s, and it also offers much better heat dissipation, throughout the boards components.


The only slight improvements Abit could make in my eyes would be to offer a wider voltage adjustment within the BIOS maybe up to 1. When the CPU’s a bit faster and the performance delta a bit larger, I’ll upgrade. Ars Tribunus Militum et Subscriptor. With the KT7A rev1. Hmm, that doesn’t look too promising.

should i risk putting an athlon xp into my abit kt7a raid v? – TechSpot Forums

Click here for a slightly more thorough rundown on RAID. If you wait for the picture above to load you will see the memory benchmarks are taken at the various different settings and finally with the FSB maxed out at MHZ with all the various options in the Abit BIOS turned on — extra memory performance.
