This is Asus’ interpretation of how a KTA should look and perform. Will the situation be mirrored in Serious Sam 2?. Benchmarks were run 3 times consecutively and an average score was taken. Pifast calculates the constant Pi to X million decimal places using the fastest method possible. We see the standard PCI slots 5, 32bit, 33Mhz flanked by a rather oddly placed floppy port. BIOS duty is handled by Award.

That heritage seems to have carried through to the A7VE. This is Asus’ interpretation of how a KTA should look and perform. This boded well for our overclocking efforts. Top marks to Asus for once again producing an impeccably behaving motherboard. The modes can be toggled by changing the position of the JEN jumper located at the bottom right of the board.

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

The Asus, whilst not the best, is certainly in the top half of those that we tested. The same story unfolds here. The board packaging is subtle and not completely over-the-top like some. Out attention is immediately drawn to the number of jumpers and dip-switches on the board, something we are seeing less of these days.

Although latency is cut in half, you do sacrifice some z7v266-e as RAID 0, by it’s very nature, has no redundancy. Let’s see how they shaped up.


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. We see our recurring theme present here.

This one takes a while to complete. Another fan header sits just to the right of the floppy port. We’ll try the test at Fastest to garner an idea of total throughput and a7266-e at Quality to represent something that mirrors actual playing resolutions.

Both systems were configured for maximum performance. We see the mark barrier breached once more courtesy of an overclocked XP The scaling of the Asus at Mhz informs us of that.

MP3 encoding is something that I regularly do, anything that saves time in that process is most welcome. By reading this site you agree to our cookie policy. Asus also show the relative running speed of the PCI bus. Another observation we made was that the board takes a while to power up once the power switch is depressed, longer than any other board we’ve had in the labs. 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.


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

You receive an excellently written main instruction manual, a quick setup guide for those who simply want to fire the motherboard up with the minimum of reading, a Audii 1.

We’re running the Valley of the Jaguar Timedemo included in the publicly available demo. However, the MSI, running with asynchronous memory, puts a little distance between itself and the Asus.

We don’t like to see this happen, but in the cut-throat x7v266-e of motherboard manufacturing, any increase in performance, however gained, is more than welcome. So far we’ve seen the Asus put up a commendable performance in our benchmarks, let’s now focus on gaming and see if it continues to do so. It’s well presented, has a multitude of features and is a champion in a7vv266-e stability stakes.

We mentioned that the Asus seems to over-supply voltage at any given setting. It’s the same as the KTA in all other respects. We would also like to asud a completely jumper-free mode in BIOS.
