ECS's KA1 MVP Extreme Motherboard
The Tech Report does their usual thorough job evaluating ECS's KA1 MVP Extreme motherboard. This mobo is based on the ATI Radeon Xpress 200 CrossFire Edition chipset, and sports supplemental PCI Express based Gigabit Ethernet and SATA RAID controllers. We'll be including this board in an upcoming CrossFire motherboard round-up we've got in the works.
"The latest of ECS's Extreme offerings is the KA1 MVP, a Socket 939 motherboard that combines ATI's Radeon Xpress 200 CrossFire Edition chipset with PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet and Serial ATA RAID. That looks like a decent spec on paper; however, we enthusiasts are a picky lot, and we demand more than just an "Extreme" moniker and checkbox features. Read on to see if the KA1 MVP delivers the performance, BIOS, layout, and extras needed to back up ECS's intentions."
