AOpen AK77Plus - AOpen AK77Plus
Sun Dec 16, 2001 | 11:32P| PermaLink
VIA's KT266A is what AMD had originally hoped for from third party chipset makers; a stable, high performance DDR chipset to match the Athlon. Sadly, things have not always been to good, the original KT266 was plagued with problems leaving AMD to push out 760 chipsets in the interim. The KT266A seems to have solved the riddle of DDR, and since it is a pin-for-pin drop in replacement for the ill-fated KT266, the transition was simple. Our subject of our affection this week is the AK77 Plus, AOpen's top-end DDR platform for the Athlon CPU. Our review sample features the KT266A chipset, but older revisions of the board may use the KT266. A look at the AOpen site reveals the UPC codes and part numbers to distinguish the KT266 from KT266A equipped boards, so be sure to check before you buy. Before we delve to deep into the AK77 Plus, we'll rundown the KT266A chipset for those that may not have kept up on their weekend chipset reading assignments. All of the information you could possibly want to know can be found here at VIA's site, so if we miss something, check there.
