As far as the performance is concerned, the FIS2R doesn’t show much of an improvement in any of our tests. Since this version is equipped with more features, you would expect it to cost higher than FSR, but interestingly that’s not the case. The prices for KT800 boards have fallen so far that there isn’t much of a difference between the high-end and more economic class boards anymore, at least this is the case with the ones that were launched with Athlon 64 platform initially. The MSI K8T-FIS2R is a worthy contender for anyone who is looking to build a system on a strict budget, and for the approximate price of $60.00, this is definitely the board to get over its FSR equivalent.
