We mentioned that the Asus seems to over-supply voltage at any given setting. Asus have worked hard to gain this enviable reputation, work that has seen them leap to become to 1 manufacturer of PC motherboards world-wide. FSB adjustment can be made in 1Mhz increments from – Mhz respectively. We see our recurring theme present here. Click to find out more. The words that spring to this reviewer’s mind are stability, quality and reliability.

It seems Asus’ lack of bandwidth is negatively impacting on results.

We see our recurring theme present here. Shifting large amounts of data from system memory to processor is the name of the game here, Let’s see how they compare when racing to calculate Pi to 10 million decimal places.

ASUS A7VE, Socket A, AMD Motherboard | eBay

We’re somewhat under-whelmed by the performance of the Asus with the stock XP. Another fan header sits just to the right of the floppy port. We’ll start the ball rolling with one of our favourites, namely 3DMark SE.

It also sports an upgraded South bridge which is now ATA compliant. The performance delta was consistent from start to finish. We’re running the Valley of the Jaguar Timedemo included in the publicly available demo.

That’s not to say that Asus have not been busy in the retail channel, just one look at their extensive product catalogue informs you of that. That heritage seems to have carried through to the A7VE. If you’re looking for a solid, feature-laden motherboard, you can do considerably worse than the A7VE.

The socket has plenty of room around it ensuring that even large coolers are relatively easy to fit. What was the best tech product of ? We feel that Asus have done a pretty good job qsus the A7VE.

VIA KT266A Motherboard Roundup – January 2002

BIOS duty is handled by Award. You’ll typically find an Asus board sitting in a ready-built PC. We’ll next turn our attention to Pifast.

Asus also show the relative running speed of the PCI bus. One seemingly annoying feature is the inability to manually turn off the RAID ports when booting. Can you say consistent? However, even when set to jumper-free, you still have to manually change the DDR voltage by jumpers. The Asus is almost unique in that chipseh offers both jumper and jumper-free modes of operation.

ASUS A7V266-E, Socket A, AMD Motherboard

The Asus is close but not close enough. The board satisfies it’s probable OEM target market pretty well.


We’ve been able to empirically prove that Pifast thrives not only on pure CPU speed but also on memory throughput. Impressive results from a stock-clocked Geforce 3 Ti Using slightly stricter settings resulted in failed boot-ups.

We had to manually asue the DDR voltage to 2. We see three DDR banks that are thoughtfully placed. We see the standard PCI slots 5, 32bit, 33Mhz flanked by a rather oddly placed floppy port. Although latency is cut in half, you do sacrifice some security as RAID 0, by it’s very nature, has no redundancy. Unlike on some other boards, you can remove the memory without having to remove the AGP card, there is just enough space for you to do so.

Click to find out more. Some xhipset abhor rotated sockets and some like them, I fall into the latter camp as it allows me comfortably attach and remove my heatsink from the motherboard without having to remove it from the case.

The scaling of the Asus at Mhz informs us of that.
