Let’s pay a visit to page 1 of our benchmarker’s Bible and try the old favourite that is Quake 3. We tried to find the limit of the motherboard by using a factory-unlocked 1. As you can see the performance-enhancing 1T command is present too. However, the MSI, running with asynchronous memory, puts a little distance between itself and the Asus. Once again, the impression of quality is evident here.

We see the mark barrier breached once more courtesy of an overclocked XP Our visual preferences were xx32 Normal settings. The same story unfolds here. Benchmarks Our trusty synthetic friend, SiSoft Sandra, leads the way.
Three Kings is the DVD of choice, it’s mixture of action and dialogue make it an excellent benchmarking test. This synthetic benchmark stresses the CPU, memory sub-system and graphics card to the limit. Asus have always impressed me with their presentation and the A7VE is no different. This boded well for our overclocking efforts.
Pifast calculates the constant Pi to X million decimal places using the fastest method possible. That heritage seems to have carried through to the A7VE. We tried to find the limit of the motherboard by using a factory-unlocked 1. The bulk of Asus’ revenue is accrued from the OEM channel. Qudio part of our stability testing, we ran SETI.
Another audko to bear in mind is the relative running speeds of both systems when set at CPU defaults. The software package, although not as impressive as some we’ve seen, is more than adequate. Let’s have a look at the results. Asus also show the relative running speed of the PCI bus. The socket has plenty of room around it ensuring that even large coolers are relatively easy to fit.
This feature is quite handy if you push the board too far. As you can see the performance-enhancing 1T command is present too. And there you have it.
It’s well presented, has a multitude of features and asis a champion in the stability stakes. Here’s a quick look at our overclocking result. We see three DDR banks that are thoughtfully placed. When set to 1. Impressive results from a stock-clocked Geforce 3 Ti We’re running the Valley of the Jaguar Timedemo included in the publicly available demo.

Will the trend that we’ve observed so far continue here? Once again, the impression of quality is evident here. The board also has a fail-safe booting mechanism. Either way, the times posted are extremely impressive in their own right.

ASUS A7V266-E – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT266A Series
We found it difficult to tell the difference between this and our Sonic Fury, praise indeed for the on-board solution. The board satisfies it’s probable OEM target market pretty well.
However, we at Hexus expect a motherboard to perform well at stock speeds, we look at motherboard manufacturers to provide that something extra, whether it be with new, innovative features or with outstanding performance.
