Test and Conclusion

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

On to the benchmarks:

Test System Setup


AMD Athlon Thunderbird 900 MHz


1 x 128 PC133 CAS2 Mushkin

Hard Drive

20.5 GB Western Digital 7200 RPM

Video Card

Hercules 3D Prophet II 64MB (GeForce 2 GTS)

Video Drivers

Detonator 5.30

Operating System

Win 98 SE



Test Results


Content Creation Winstone 2000

Thunderbird 900 on K7T Pro


Thunderbird 900 on Asus A7V


Thunderbird 900 on FIC AZ11


As I mentioned before the benchmarks were shown, if AMD has taken the steps to prevent simple overclocking of the multiplier (and I believe they will), then the advantages of have an A7V will become obsolete. The numbers clearly show that MSI K7T Pro motherboard can hold its own in a testing environment or situation. If you don’t have a desire to overclock, or have a processor that is already locked by AMD and unable to be easily modified, this motherboard should definitely be on your “Compare” list.
