Soyo K7VTA KT133 Motherboard Review

Soyo K7VTA KT133 Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: In the wake of the popularity of the Athlon/Duron platform, Soyo has released 2 Socket A boards of their own: the SY K7VTA B and the SY K7VTA. Soyo Europe was kind enough to provide us with both of them. These two boards look quite similar, but they do have some significant differences in feature set.

We used Business Winstone 99 and Content Creation Winstone 2000 to evaluate performance of the tested boards. Winstone 99 (Business Winstone 99) v1.2 is used to test the overall business performance of the computer system by using applications such as MS Office 97, Lotus Smartsuite 97, etc. Content Creation Winstone 2000 is a system level, application based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running today's Windows based Internet content creation applications. The test focuses on top selling Internet content creation applications. Each test was run 3 times with the result being the average value of the 3 test runs. Higher scores indicate better performance.

Business Winstone performance of the K7VTA sits amongst the top performance wise. It lags behind the DFI boards in this arena but only by a slight margin. Content Creation Winstone 2000 scores show a different story with both Soyo motherboards clinching top spot.

Gaming Performance

A similar turn of events here where our Soyo sample was able to give a near 3 FPS boost in performance. As you will see in the next section, this is attributed to the high memory bandwidth scores that we obtained.
