I was able to reach 1.2 GHz with this CPU successfully which is a big improvement over the Tyan Trinity KTa that I tested before. Both boards are KT133A based but I had suspected that the Tyan board was having problems not related to the chipset. In order to achieve a comparison between two smiliar boards I decided to test the SL-75KAV at 900 MHz also so that we can have a direct comparison to work with. This meant retesting with the Tyan KTa since the release of newer nVidia drivers, VIA 4 in 1s and most importantly, the inclusion of the GeForce 2 Pro which would naturally deliver better performance over the GeForce 2 GTS I had used during the Tyan review.
