And over at Techseekers they reviewed the Gigabyte GA-7VAX Athlon Motherboard :
Today we are going to look at Gigabytes KT400 based GA-7VAX. This is the standard board without all the extras that the VAXP has. It is aimed more at the budget end of the market but still maintaining quality and speed known to Gigabyte.

The KT400 chipset is VIAs first chipset to support 8x AGP as well as 400Mhz operation of the Memory interface. (More on this later) .The Memory interface is tricky ground because DDR400 is not a JEDEC standard yet and some modules differ in operation at that speed. This is the reason behind the compatibility list that Gigabyte has prepared covering DDR400 memory operation.
