    Just installed the new BIOS from soltek for the sl-75drv DDR board which uses the VIA north and south chipssets and sandra reports the following.

    Mine (Soltek) VIA PC2100(133) CL2.5 DDR
    Int ALU/RAM Bandwidth = 598MB/s
    Float FPU/RAM Bandwidth = 761MN/s

    The AMD760 PC2100 CL2.5 DDR
    Int ALU/RAM Bandwidth = 573MB/s
    Float FPU/RAM Bandwidth = 700MN/s


    Not to bad. I need better cooling to do any overclocking. Case temp is 35. ambient is 21

    cheers.

    i get about 545/690 and sometimes around 590/710 if i'm lucky on an Ali Magik 1 board and Crucial PC2100 RAM @ CAS2.

    KT266 board should be beating the AMD ones.

    The new Asus A7V266 motherboard (based on the supposedly bad KT266 chipset) looks like it might be a winner - Kyle Bennett over at [H]ard|OCP reviewed one, and was very impressed.

    Via have denied (in this very forum) that there's a "revised" version of the KT266 chipset being used - it seems more likely that early boards based on the KT266 had performance and stability issues due to being "rush-jobs" rather than because of any failing with the KT266 chipset itself.

    Socket A also reviewed A7V266, they have A7V266, 8KHA, AK31 and 7VTX head to head.
