Introduction

This content was originally featured on Amdmb.com and has been converted to PC Perspective's website. Some color changes and flaws may appear.

Over the past generation of VIA chipsets, we have seen the motherboard manufacturer Gigabyte grow to become one of the more popular to retail consumers. Their Super 7 boards were top quality and stable for Socket 7 overclocking.


Gigabyte entered the Athlon motherboard world with the introduction of the GA-7IX, an AMD 750 chipset motherboard. One of the original distributors and pioneers of Athlon technology, Gigabyte received a large user base for their initial trial at allowing overclocking options to the user and keep stability at the helm. The GA-7VM, reviewed here, is a micro-ATX motherboard using the second generation Athlon chipset, the VIA KX133.
