PCStats has posted an AOpen AK77-600 Max Motherboard review
VIA's latest chipset is currently the KT600, a chipset that in all honesty is about one year too late. VIA should have released the KT600 last year in place of the KT400/KT400A chipsets. Had they done this it would probably have been enough for VIA to keep most of their AMD market share. Amazing as it seems, the year old nForce2 is still faster and more advanced then the KT600. All is not lost of couse. VIA realized that while they cannot compete with nVIDIA's nForce2 in terms of performance, when it comes to pricing it's a whole other ball game. VIA have, and can price the KT600 chipset far below that of the nForce2-SPP. When the bottom line counts VIA definitely remains in the game as most people think with their wallets, rather than sometimes obscure benchmarks. Today we're going to be testing the new AOpen AK77-600 Max KT600 based motherboard. As we've seen lately, AOpen packs a ton of value into their motherboards and their AK77-600 Max is ! no different.
