Soyo 7VBA 133 Review

For a long time now I've regarded Soyo motherboards as one of the best, soley by reputation. They've never been on the bleeding edge, but always producing solid consumer level boards which have stood the test of time. Recently we contacted Soyo and they agreed to send us their latest socket 370 board, the 7VBA+ based on the VIA Apollo Pro 133a chipset. The 7VBA sports an impressive features list including up to 1.5GB of Vitrual channel RAM and independant clock generators for the FSB, PCI, and AGP bus. Although the 7VBA is certinally not bleeding edge technology, it is a solid lower-end board with some nice features and decent performance to back them up.
