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.

Benchmarks: PCMark2002. 3DMark2001SE

PCMark 2002 Source: MadOnion

PCMark is a new benchmark from our pals at MadOnion which a whole system benchmark. It can be used on desktop PC's, Laptops and even Workstations and tests everyday computing from home to office usage. PCMark specifically stresses the CPU, memory subsystem, graphics subsystem, hard drives, WindowsXP GUI (if WinXP is used), video performance and even laptop batteries. This benchmark was released March 12, 2002 and can be downloaded from Madonion if you would like to give it a test run on your computer for comparisons sake...

PCMark2002 Benchmark Results
Processor PCMarks Ranking
1. 8RGA+ - 166/333 6682
2. KX400-8XV Pro - 166/333 6552
3. K7V-400A - 166/333 6489
4. K7V-400A - 178/356 6938


1. 8RGA+ - 166/333 5236
2. KX400-8XV Pro - 166/333 5116
3. K7V-400A - 166/333 5123
4. K7V-400A - 178/356 5334

Here we see the KX400-8XV Pro performs about the same as the K7V-400A. They're both slower then the 8RGA+ at stock speeds.

3DMark2001 SE Source: MadOnion

3DMark2001 SE is the latest installment in the 3DMark series by MadOnion. By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001 SE has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using Ipion real-time physics. Higher 3DMark scores denote better performance.

3DMark2001 SE Benchmark Results
Processor 3DMarks Ranking
1. 8RGA+ - 166/333 15973
2. KX400-8XV Pro - 166/333 14668
3. K7V-400A - 166/333 14824
4. K7V-400A - 178/356 15461

3DMark is sensitive to the memory controller and here we see that the K7V-400A is just slightly faster then the older KX400-8XV Pro. Even when overclocked though the board is still not as fast as the 8RGA+.
