MSI also uses the finest precision equipment to minimize the defect rate. Via’s engineers were given the task of improving the KTA’s lacklustre performance, they came up with something not far short of remarkable. Even with today’s powerful processors, we still have to wait a considerable time before a ‘DVD-rip’ is complete. That doesn’t change anything but we just found it interesting. Fuzzy Logic is a particular favourite of ours, it safely overclocks your CPU through Windows, thereby eliminating many failed bootups. Both systems were configured for maximum performance. Still, seconds is the fastest time we’ve ever seen for a CPU at default speeds.

MSI KT3 Ultra-ARU, Socket A, AMD (MS-6380-020) Motherboard

Here’s a ussb rundown of our test system and benchmarks used. This item doesn’t belong on this page. Additional Product Features Interfaces. DVD encoding is another popular pastime of our readers.

We’re seeing consistent results that seem to indicate that DDR can positively impact on performance, albeit in a small way. This, once again, seems to ratify our theory that DDR is able to provide the DDR limited Athlon more available bandwidth when truly required.

Review: MSI KT3 Ultra ARU – Mainboard –

Naturally, a number crunching activity like Pifast thrives on memory bandwidth, as the computation relies upon passing masses mmsi information between system memory and the CPU. DVD encoding is another activity that thrives on memory bandwidth. If motherboards were judged on aesthetics, the MSI would score very highly. Unfortunately, at the time of testing, we didn’t have access to bluetooth devices to verify just how well it works.


MSI KT3 Ultra2 – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT333 Series

The usual gamut of hardware features are covered in intuitive fashion. But as kalabp points: The KT is slightly faster and should come-to-market at about the same price. Best Selling in Motherboards See all. Instead you have to use the plus and minus keys to scroll through a list of FSB settings from – MHz, which is a tad irritating.

AMD’s success is due in some part to Via Technologies. The integrated USB 1.

Being multiplier-locked, we resorted to raising the FSB one Mhz per time. I have no issues with the USB case in Windows. The weight of the unopened box is enough to inform you of that. Rotate the socket 90 degrees and all those problems vanish We feel that MSI’s interpretation of the KT chipset has been a successful one, one that marries performance to stability. MSI, historically, have not paid too much attention to the overclocking community. About Us Employment Privacy Policy.


On-board audio is handled by the rather capable Realtek AL chipset. Again, at first glance, the official support for DDR seems a shade academic. Both systems were configured for maximum performance. Subjective listening revealed that whilst not on a par with Nforce’s excellent APU, the on-board solution was more than adequate for general Windows duty, we’d say it was on a par with C-Media’s excellent 87xx series of codecs.

Our attempts proved futile. As soon as you open the rather heavy motherboard box, you just know that a considerable amount of thought has been put into the board and package.

Features and Installation The extensive specification list informs you that this board is jam-packed with features. Any suggestions what to try next? It gets somewhat hot during use, so this heatsink probably helps stability quite a lot.

As the Athlon matured, so did Via’s chipsets. We ran the benchmark at Fastest and xx32 Quality. What was the best kh3 product of ?
