 Benchmarks and Conclusions


In this review you'll find three motherboards which are using KT333 chipset. While they all have the same chipset, it doesn't mean they will perform the same or what is the bundle they come with. Lets take a brief look at KT333 and what it can offer.

The VIA Apollo KT333 is part of the V-MAP family of chipsets, which provides pin compatibility across the full range of VIA DDR products. V-MAP, or VIA Modular Architecture Platform, allows motherboard manufacturers, OEMs, and System Integrators to serve different market segments with a single, unified platform design. This approach speeds time to market and ultimately reduces the price of V-MAP based mainboards. The VIA Apollo KT333 (model number VT8367) is completely pin-compatible the VIA Apollo KT266A (VT8366A) to ensure rapid time to market. It can be paired with a choice of VT8233/VT8233A/VT8233C South Bridges, which are connected through the chipset's high bandwidth V-Link Hub Architecture. Other key features include AGP4X, ATA-100 (ATA-133 in the VT8233A), integrated six channel advanced audio, six USB ports, LPC bus, and integrated 10/100Mbps Ethernet and Home PNA, AC-97 audio, and MC-97 modem.
