POV-Ray streams plenty of data from main memory to the CPU and back to perform its intensive calculations required to render our test scene. This is the first motherboard directly supporting USB 2. Is it the same again, not quick, hard to implement etc and have MSI done a good job with the board? While I think comparing temperatures, even across identical motherboards is a futile exercise, being able to measure CPU temperature as accurately as possible on the board in use is very important and the MSI can’t hope to do this unfortunately. Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. As you can see, MSI has taken the chipset and added its own twists. I’m very hopeful that a newer revision of the BIOS for the board will extract even more performance and bring things up to speed on this test setup.

Support For K7T Pro2 | Motherboard – The world leader in motherboard design | MSI Global

Taking a look at the picture of the motherboard and starting at the top, we can see that the ATX connector is to the left of the CPU socket, right in the corner. Introduction MSI were kind enough to courier me their latest, not-even-on-the-website, motherboard for review, the K7T Pro2. Performance is good and overall the board seems great. Here are the official specifications. Sorry, we’re having trouble showing recommendations right now.


Plextor the faster the better Video card: I didn’t install the extra Windows software component due to it being a review motherboard but rest assured the hardware side of things works well.

MSI K7T266 Pro2-A – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT266A

If you have the Kingston, then keep them and use them. Performance on the MSI never dropped below the performance of the KG7-RAID when the performance issues had been ironed out so we can say with confidence that it’s faster than that board.

However, I’ve had nothing but problems with the onboard sound driver under Windows XP. I could be wrong however. Please make sure that you are posting in the form of a question.

Next up we have the memory bandwidth benchmarks. The numbers in this benchmark fall right into line with the Reference numbers evr with Sandra in this new version. The manual makes not reference to the procedure to enable a working motherboard if the SmartKey is lost you can use a new SmartKey as long as you provide the correct password and the password is then copied to the new SmartKey and you enter verr wrong password 3 times, locking the BIOS and the system completely.


User Name Remember Me? With 3DMark testing overall CPU, memory and graphics performance and Sandra providing the synthetic numbers, we have pretty much all bases covered.

PTLE works on MSI K7T Pro2 (MS v) with an Athlon XP+ ??? – Avid Pro Audio Community

Under XP is fine. Has everything you need to know about hooking it up. A smart msk on VIA’s part indeed. But what do we get over the KT? Of course, the benchmarking crowd will love it. Sandra Memory Bandwidth Benchmark 9 x Next up we have POV-Ray.
