AMD760 - MSI K7 Master
MSI provided us with its upcoming
The BIOS-setup allows the alteration of the processor bus clock in small steps and it also lets you overclock the SocketA processors once you closed the L1-bridges on the CPU. Unfortunately MSI forgot to include an option to lower the CPU-multiplier, which would be very useful for owners of 100 MHz FSB Athlon or Duron processors that want to run their CPUs at 133 MHz FSB.
The board provided very stable operation and excellent performance, but the pre-release BIOS has got a problem with the ATA100-feature, as I was unable to get to a higher hard disk data transfer rate than 15 MB/s. I am sure that a new BIOS will remedy this problem, which forced us to use an external Promise Ultra100 IDE-controller for our benchmark runs.
