Every time I tried to run the extended test with the Quantum drive, it would give me floating point errors. Other then that, my drives score pretty well. The Promise Ultra100 Controller scores better in both access time and burst read rates naturally. It's too bad that I didn't have another identical HDD so I could test a RAID-0 configuration. I'm sure it would have been interesting to see how it would fair. The results would seem to indicate it would have performed very favorably.

So why would the average consumer want a board based on SDRAM instead of DDRAM? Well its becoming more of a personal choice than anything else these days. DDRAM is now priced about the same (or less) than SDRAM, so there isn't the huge price difference to sway you anymore. Regardless, DDR is just beginning to have it's time, but currently the Asus A7V133 is a prime example what a good mature chipset with stable drivers can produce. On top of that, if you are just upgrading your old system you can continue to use your old SDRAM without any added memory expenses.

I'm sure I'll be keeping this board for a while longer, and when the day comes that I do eventually switch to DDR, this board is not going to be retired. No, the A7V133 is an amazing performer that will see a good long life span.
