Hardware Roundup Mobos slug it out

Boxing clever?

Although we somehow doubt that the ASUS A7V mobo really weighs in at 205 lbs, Sharky Extreme's head to head contest between it and ABIT's KT7-RAID in the blue corner, still makes interesting reading. Any mobo scoring 9.5 on a scale of 10 has to be worth a closer look.

Those awfully nice VapoChill people will soon have Socket A variants of their coolers on the market, claiming happy Athlons at 1.25GHz and ecstatic Durons at 1.1GHz. Check out the benchmarks at this site.

And over at One2Surf, you'll find another Head to Head between rival ABIT , ASUS and MICROSTAR's VIA Apollo KT133 Motherboards. The results are too close to call.

And OC Workbench reckons the MSI Geforce2 GTS is a wonderful performer, despite a little driver instability. AT the same place you can see what Intel revealed when it opened the kimono at the Fall developer forum in Tokyo - some tasty-looking Akiru Pentium 4 concept PCs, looking more than a little like the Mac G4. ®
