Epox MVP3G-M Super7 Motherboard
Last updated: 3/6/2001
WOULD I USE THIS BOARD IN A FILE SERVER? Yes. AMD
K6-2 processors and Epox Super7 make very reliable Windows NT workgroup and
small business file servers. I have a 58MVP3C-M in my NT server. It
has been the most reliable motherboard I've had in my server in 12 years. I
have a 51MVP3-M in my accountant's NT file server. He has eight workstations
hung off that server. His server has been running continuously for
six months without a hiccup or even a reboot (and even more remarkably in
Maine, without a power outage).
BOTTOM LINE. The K6-3 breaths
new life into the Super7 segment of the computer market and makes it more
than a second fiddle to the Pentium. But, wait for AMD to ramp-up K6-3
production and for the price to drop, as it will. In the mean time,
use your old socket 7 CPU or buy a K6-2. Add the performance, quality
and reliability of the MVP3G and you will have a very satisfactory system
at a very good price.
