Soltek 75KV KT133 Motherboard Review

Soltek 75KV KT133 Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Plagued by numerous problems in the recent past, Intel now sees itself in a very difficult position. Quite a contrast from the days before the existance of the Athlon. Since the Athlon's conception, AMD has been moving forward at full speed and minimal hindrance many thanks to the vast pool of chipset and motherboard support.

Quake 3

For this benchmark, we used the High Quality setting under Quake3 with the default resolution of 800x600 and other options left at default.

Memory Bandwidth

The following scores were taken from benchmarks performed with SiSoft Sandra 2000's Memory Benchmark option.

Nothing new over here. Soltek's SL 75KV seems to fit right in between the Biostar and the Asus motherboard tested here. Naturally, when comparing motherboards equipped with like chipsets, results attained would not be drastically different from one another unless of course, the motherboard boasts of serious design problems.

Audio Quality

For those motherboards equipped with an AC97 Audio CODEC, I normally refrain from commenting about its audio quality as it is taken for granted that AC97 are for those not too serious about sound quality. In fact, with Soltek's SL 67KV, I came across some very harsh and noisy audio output. To my surprise, the audio output of the SL 75KV was quite pleasant.

At any volume level, the sound was crisp and most importantly it was very clear. So much so that I had even removed my PCI sound card as I was quite satisfied with what the CODEC could do.

However, the problem of "soft audio" is the fact that a good number of CPU cycles are consumed. Hardcore gamers will shun AC97 anyway as they cannot afford the drop in frame rates.
