AMD themselves had a go with their AMDbased motherboard, but that was more to do with getting the Athlon off and running.
ABIT NF7 Mainboard
Doing straight out of the box is an amazing feat in abif. Whilst it matched the incumbent VIA solution on a performance basis, and beat it in the technological and feature stakes, it’s relatively high price ensured that VIA could just hold on to their Socket A mantle as 1 chipset maker.
Here you’ll be able to add a maximum of four USB 2. ASUS has three boards in the top ten and 5. I always like seeing a manufacturer use components which have a good reputation for quality on their products. It indicates they care about the level of quality of their product and considering the recent failure rates surrounding some low ESR capacitors, this is an important area for the longevity of the board.
He managed a reference clock of It was manufactured using a nm 0.
Motherboard Memory Lane: AMD Socket A, Abit NF7-S V and AMD Athlon +
In only half a year, nVIDIA have dethroned the n7f champion chipsets from VIA and have created quite a reputation for themselves in the stable high performance chipset arena. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. Won’t you please settle this for us. We had a look at the revised nForce2 chipset a couple of months ago.
Socket A motherboards supported a broad number of chipset designs that included the VIA KT and Nvidia nForce Ultra series, both popular choices with motherboard manufacturers. It supported a range of K7 architecture AMD processors and core designs that spanned the period from to You can find the submission from I. Therefore, the NF7-S supports no more than four IDE drives total, which really shouldn’t be an issue with the vast majority of users and yes, even power users.
Something I was extremely happy to see was that the NF7-M was only using Rubycon capacitors, nothing else. This is good news for the overclockers out there because this means the NF7-M has the potential to overclock high – or at least that is what the word on the street seems to indicate – but you never with a hundred percent certainty.
ABIT NF7 – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – nForce2 SPP Overview – CNET
Log in Don’t have an account? Stacked with technology and useful features, ABIT have their interpretation up and raring to go. Today we continue our Mother Memory Lane series, hf7 our focus back to the beginning of the last decade, to a time when AMD had the upper hand against Intel in terms of raw performance.
The nForce Ultra was most popular with overclockers due to its ability reach higher clock speeds with independent CPU, memory and AGP overclocking. If you decide to upgrade out of vanity, or necessity, to a larger active Northbridge heatsink you’ll appreciate the fact that ABit have nvudia the fan header just a few millimeters up on the board. The motherboard is very well labelled, if you do not happen to nvodia what a header does just look closely on the PCB and you’ll find a description.
Finally we come to the classic SuperPi 32M benchmark, an important benchmark in terms of historical relevance. Return nd7 week when we will focus on the AMD Socket platform and the motherboards, chips and scores that defined that particular era.
Ships with the following: Knowing how well those other two iterations of the NF7 platform have performed, I’m sure you’ll agree we have some high expectations about what this board will be able to do, so abiy get started! This goal couldn’t be better exemplified than by their Serillel converter technology. Besides the two rear USB 2.
This is what ExtremeOvercloking. CPU Frequency Although raw CPU frequencies are not really treated as true benchmarks today, they remain an important performance metric for most overclockers.
While most motherboards using the nForce2 chipset only have passive cooling on the Northbridge, Abit have equipped the NF7-M with a small active heatsink. The general layout of the NF7-M is good, I would have preferred to have the main ATX and auxiliary power connectors elsewhere, but I understand that being ng7 to the MOSFETs provides the cleanest voltage signals to the motherboard powersupply circuit.
