MSI's - KT133 Athlon/Duron Motherboard
Should this be your next motherboard?

August 15, 2000 By Sean 'BiZ' Mueller

It seems like only yesterday we were all scrambling to get a hold of the latest and greatest KX133 based motherboard. AMD's Athlon CPU on a KX133 based motherboard had established itself as a more then capable competitor to the best offerings Intel could muster. Then someone over at AMD decided it was high time they moved on to Socket A. Something about Slot A/KX133 incompatibilities and margins, we were told. Poor KX133, we hardly even knew ya. So, what's an aspiring AMD loyalist supposed to do?  Well, let me introduce you to MSI's K7T Pro / (MS-6330). How does MSI's idea of what a KT133 powered Socket A motherboard stack up? Does it have "the goods" to compete against the best of the rest?  Well, I guess that's why we're all here, eh?
