AMD 760 problem identified?

Gigabyte mobo doesn't work at 133MHz FSB

Stalwart DDR supporter Tom's Hardware Guide, couldn't make its sample Gigabyte GA-7DX mobo run reliably at 133MHz FSB. Could this point to the reason DDR Athlons aren't quite with us yet?

As THG says: "Unfortunately it was a too early version to run reliably at 133 MHz FSB. Thus we tested an Athlon 1000/100 in this board, as AMD was unwilling or unable to supply our German lab with an Athlon 1200/100."

Although THG still maintains its stance that there are no problems with either the AMD 760 in general and the Gigabyte GA-7DX in particular, the mobo's inability to support 266MHz DDR SDRAM could well be causing system builders to be holding back until this support is forthcoming. ®
