In the end, it all works out the same as the original article. Performance is on par, with no clear winner. Once I worked around the installation snafu, the KA266 performed flawlessly. But then so did the KT7A. There are a couple of (slightly more serious) issues with the KT7A motherboard, and the one problem I did encounter has been fixed with the latest VIA 4in1 drivers, but I cannot fault the KT7A’s performance or stability either.
