SCSI and RAID Devices


The black borders are cropped to save unnecessary encoding time. Everything is stowed away neatly. It appears so, the Asus can’t quite catch the MSI at default speeds but naturally edges ahead at overclocked speeds. Both systems were configured for maximum performance. Impressive results all-round Let’s pay a visit to page 1 of our benchmarker’s Bible and try the old favourite that is Quake 3. The performance delta was consistent from start to finish. I’m sure OEM system builders will be more than happy at the inclusion of this little chip, as it almost precludes the need for a true hardware solution.

ASUS A7V266-E – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT266A Series

The scaling of 7av266 Asus at Mhz informs us of that. As has been mentioned above, the board can be set to a7b266 mode by changing the position of one jumper. We weren’t surprised to see the board soldiering on even after extended abuse. We ran the board continuously for well over 16 hours with Prime95 and SETI both taxing the system simultaneously.

MP3 encoding is something that I regularly do, anything that saves time in that process is most welcome.

Asus also show the relative running speed of the PCI bus. Here’s a quick rundown of our test system and benchmarks used. RAID 1 is more commonly used to back up data as one drive simply mirrors what’s is on the other.


So far we’ve seen the Asus put up a commendable performance in our benchmarks, let’s now focus on gaming and see sounf it continues to do so. Either way, the times posted are extremely impressive in their own right. We would also like to see a completely jumper-free mode in BIOS. Pifast calculates the constant Pi to X million decimal places using the fastest method possible.

Let’s move onto another area of media encoding that has historically been heavily reliant on memory throughput, namely DVD encoding. This is Asus’ interpretation of how a KTA should look and perform. We’ll try the test at Fastest to garner an idea of total throughput and then at Quality to represent something that mirrors actual playing resolutions. This boded well for our overclocking efforts.

We found it difficult to tell the difference between this and our A7c266 Fury, praise indeed for the on-board solution. Everything is stowed away neatly. Again, we see the Asus trailing the MSI at stock speeds but managing to overtake it when ‘clocked to the limit.

Review: Asus A7VE RAID Motherboard – Mainboard –

We appreciate that little touch. We feel that Asus have done a pretty good job with the A7VE.


Strong performances all-round here. The fact that certain jumpers still have to be manipulated is a negative point. Let’s see how they shaped up. We see the standard PCI sohnd 5, 32bit, 33Mhz flanked by a rather oddly placed floppy port. The same story unfolds here. The layout of the board is generally good with the exception of an oddly placed floppy drive port.

The board also has a fail-safe booting mechanism. That heritage seems to have carried through to the A7VE.

On-board sound is having something of a renaissance of late. We tried to find the limit of the motherboard by using a factory-unlocked 1. Will the situation be mirrored in Serious Sam 2?. This feature is quite handy a7v66 you push the board too a7v66.

Vcore can be raised from 1. By reading this site you agree to our cookie policy. Let’s have a look at the specification in a little more detail. 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.
