There are also 2 fan headers near the top edge of the board, to the left and right of the DIMM slots. SmartKey is also a good value addition to the K7T Pro2 package.
Before we get our hands dirty in the specifications, remember a chipset is just that, a set of individual chips that work together to provide the services the AMD platform needs to function. So what can we draw from the following numbers?
It just seems that something in the configuration is holding the board back. Software is also installed on the operating system that stops the OS from functioning properly if the k72t66 SmartKey isn’t detected. I know quite a few reviews of motherboards are done outside of a case in the confines of a testing area.
They connect to a header on the motherboard and mirror the 4 LED’s above the audio connectors on the ATX backplane that are visible if you open the case. MSI were kind enough to courier me their latest, not-even-on-the-website, motherboard for review, the K7T Pro2. K7t2266 to find out more.

Physical installation of the board was a cinch. Here we see the extra memory bandwidth of the KTA pulling its weight. I’m very hopeful that a newer revision of the BIOS for the board will extract even more performance and bring things up to speed on this test setup. KTA attempts to redress the balance with much increased memory bandwidth. The top left placement is a good choice however and gets my thumbs up. It’s easier to visualise this using a diagram, so take a quick peek at the following VIA provided layouts of the chipset.
Something like DivX encoding should see a handy increase in encoding speed, knocking a fair few minutes off the time of a usual full length movie encoding.
Quake3 and 3DMark respond well to the new chipset giving us the broad impression that most OpenGL and Direct3D game performance will increase. Next up we have the memory bandwidth benchmarks. Prk was run at default clocks and display settings at 9 x just to check that everything was working as far as the KTA AGP driver was concerned and the following score illustrates that perfectly. A thermistor is present, but it’s a surface mount type, like a resistor and comes nowhere to touching the CPU.

This board was installed fully in a case and since it shares the exact same mounting points as should po similar sized motherboards conforming to the ATX spec as the previous occupant of the case, the Abit KG7-RAID, installation was simple. We’ll be looking to add a Flask encoding run to future reviews if possible to illustrate the performance increases across a new chipset or CPU. Load of room around the socket is always a welcome bonus. Introduction MSI were kind enough to courier me their latest, not-even-on-the-website, m7t266 for review, the K7r266 Pro2.
Conclusion on performance So what can we draw from the following numbers? As you can see, MSI has taken the chipset and added its own twists. The floppy connector is also grouped here which is where it should be to lessen the cable length required over a bottom edge placement.
Here are the official specifications.
It may be a component in my setup, it may be a BIOS setting tweaked wrongly but I’m sure more memory performance is there to be unlocked. And k7t2666 the supplied WDM driver for the Live! POV-Ray streams plenty of data from main memory to the CPU and back to perform its intensive calculations required to render our test scene.

But VIA have persevered and here it is. The problem exists under Windows too, but not to the same extent. SYS driver, BSOD’s lro shutdown and the sound randomly seems to stop at any point during using the audio and doesn’t come back to life until you reboot. Sandra Memory Bandwidth Benchmark 9 x
