Our AMD series of articles kicks off with the classic Socket Aa CPU socket and platform which many us will recall with fondness, not least because it also involved some memorably overclockable processors.

Where we do see a change hcipset the new Northbridge chip. He managed a reference clock of The VIA KT and KT may well have been the most popular in terms of units shipped globally, but it lacked the necessary performance features that overclockers craved.

It was manufactured using a nm 0. This is definitely the best overclocking nForce 2 motherboard.


CPU Frequency Although raw CPU frequencies are not really treated as true benchmarks today, they remain an important performance metric for most overclockers. Also the box gets a face lift.

In nf7-ss Socket A era, we find the enthusiast segment to be quite different with Abit proving to be the motherboard manufacturer of choice with overclockers on HWBOT.

Motherboard Memory Lane: AMD Socket A, Abit NF7-S V2.0 and AMD Athlon 2500+

chipsef Watch our Tech Videos. OK, all the technicalities are out of the way, onto the good stuff The AMD Athlon XP series arrived in and was an immediate hit with enthusiasts, offering superior performance than Intel equivalents, coupled with reasonably competitive prices. Most notably were the four mounting holes around the CPU socket to use beefier heatsinks, and watercooling, as well as audio and data corruption issues.
