Magic-Pro MP-K7V-400A Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: VIA's second attempt at a 333MHz FSB AthlonXP chipset, known as the KT400A, is a good one even though it is a little too late to make a difference.

SysMark2002 is more of an extension of SysMark2001 rather then a whole new benchmark. The applications used during testing have been updated and most importantly for AMD users, the new SysMark2002 uses the Windows Media Encoder 7.1 which supports the AthlonXP's SSE instructions.

BapCo SysMark 2002 Benchmark Results
Internet Content (FSB/Memory) Sysmarks Ranking
1. 8RGA+ - 166/333 325
2. KX400-8XV Pro - 166/333 319
3. K7V-400A - 166/333 323
4. K7V-400A - 178/356 338

Office Productivity (FSB/Memory)

1. 8RGA+ - 166/333 198
2. KX400-8XV Pro - 166/333 185
3. K7V-400A - 166/333 186
4. K7V-400A - 178/356 192

Here we see that the VIA KT400A based K7V-400A slightly outperforms the Albatron KX400-8XV Pro at stock speeds, but is a tad slower then the Epox 8RGA+.

Winstone 2002 Source: Zdnet

Content Creation Winstone 2002 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running top, Windows-based, 32-bit, content creation applications on Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows Me, or Windows XP.

Business Winstone 2002 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running today's top-selling Windows-based 32-bit applications on Windows 98, Windows 2000 (SP6 or later), Windows Me, or Windows XP. Business Winstone doesn't mimic what these packages do; it runs real applications through a series of scripted activities and uses the time a PC takes to complete those activities to produce its performance scores.

Winstone 2002 Benchmark Results
Content Content (FSB/Memory) Score Ranking
1. 8RGA+ - 166/333 33.2
2. KX400-8XV Pro - 166/333 32.6
3. K7V-400A - 166/333 32.9
4. K7V-400A - 178/356 33.6

Business Winstone (FSB/Memory)

1. 8RGA+ - 166/333 47.1
2. KX400-8XV Pro - 166/333 45.1
3. K7V-400A - 166/333 45
4. K7V-400A - 178/356 46.9

The performance differences between the Albatron KT400 and Magic-Pro KT400A motherboards are within the margin of error so it's difficult to say which board is faster here.
