Terms and conditions apply. However, the little push rod to lever the card from the socket is flanked closely by a capacitor making it very hard to operate with your fingers, even for someone like me who has quite small hands. Software installation was also simple. This is the first motherboard directly supporting USB 2. At MHz, the run takes 50 seconds. 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.

: MSI – MB K7T Pro2 ver, (K7T Pro2-RU): Computers & Accessories

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. Loading recommendations for this item A smart move on VIA’s part indeed.

As always though, it all depends on the applications that you run and whether they will be able jsi take advantage of the new speed increases. I’m very hopeful that a newer revision of the BIOS for pro2-w board will extract even more performance and bring things up to speed on this test setup.

You have to be pushing the current memory bandwidth limits on a previous chipset to really see the difference. At any rate, it is so far from being slow!

The manual makes not reference to the procedure to enable a working motherboard if the SmartKey is lost you can use a new SmartKey as long as you provide the correct password and the password is k72t66 copied to the new SmartKey and you enter the wrong password 3 times, locking the BIOS and the system completely. A closer inspection of the CPU socket reveals something a bit more disturbing. A couple of BIOS tweaks and a general going over and that should be that. Finally before we hit the pretty pictures, the tests are performed at the default system speed of Mhz 9 x and Mhz 9 pfo2-a showing the improvements to be gained both in clock speed and memory bandwidth via a higher front side bus clock.


If you are into media encoding such as MP3 encoding or the creation of DivX movies you’ll be happy with the new speed. The top left placement is kt266 good mzi however and gets my thumbs up. KT has been soundly trounced by AMD in the performance stakes.

However, I’ve had nothing but problems with the onboard sound driver under Windows XP.

It also seems like the BIOS setup is critical. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

Be the first to review pr2o-a item 0. While I think comparing temperatures, even across identical motherboards is a futile exercise, being able to measure CPU temperature as accurately as possible on the board in use is very important and the MSI can’t hope to do this unfortunately.

It 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. Thumbs up to MSI and if they can sort out the small issues in a later revision, they can’t fail to succeed with this board.

BSOD’s do occur however and the audio stops sometimes. The inclusion of things like USB2. So what can we draw from the following numbers? It’s a nice looking touch, but won’t please the overclockers looking to the K7T Pro2 as their next choice. I must stress that the layout of motherboard is pure personal taste and some problem item in one case might be perfect in another.

Sorry, we’re having trouble showing recommendations right now. A Quick Note on Installation and Software. Performance One of the biggest selling points of this new wave of KTA boards is the increased performance. Here we see the extra memory bandwidth of the KTA pulling its weight.

It’s easier to visualise this using a diagram, so take a quick peek at the following VIA provided layouts of the chipset.
