AK31 motherboard - FrostyTech.com AK31 motherboard
Wed Jan 23, 2002 | 1:23A| PermaLink
SHUTTLE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED us with their AK31 motherboard. Revision 2 of that board miraculously combined VIA's KT266 chipset with decent performance and stability-a feat few other motherboard makers had accomplished at the time. Not only that, but the AK31 rev. 2 had fully six PCI slots, four DIMM slots, and BIOS-based overclocking options out the wazoo. For 90 bucks, it was a wonder. We did have a couple of complaints about the AK31, though. There was no on-board RAID controller, and most good enthusiasts' mobos now include ATA RAID. Also, we were lukewarm on the integrated AC'97 audio. We have nothing against AC'97, but the audio controller on VIA's south bridge chips 90wehf hoifewo fewiho... Sorry, something got garbled there. Must be static. Anyhow, Shuttle appears to have listened to us, because their new AK35GTR is everything we liked about the AK31 plus everything we were asking for in addition. Coupled with VIA's revised KT266A north bridge and their new ATA/133-capable south bridge chip, the AK35GTR aims to put Shuttle in the running for "best Athlon motherboard" in a field that's grown considerably more crowded in recent months. Can Shuttle's new mobo really run with the best of the pack when the competition is intense? Keep reading to find out.
