There isn't any surprise here. The 75KV2 X performs as good as the 75KV and
ranks in the performance scales remain similar. This is certainly what we expect
considering similar design (and similar Northbridge). What we are still very
impressed about is that that it comes in very close to performance levels
of the Asus A7V.
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
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.
