Operating System (requiring Hard-boot)2

We would classify the AD70-SRs stability as reasonable. We were able to crash the board under extreme circumstances, but in general, no more than is typical of most motherboards on the market. Remember that these are extreme testing conditions. The board is quite capable of sustaining long periods of normal usage without any problems, as are most boards on the market.

The AD70-SRs performance is right where wed expect for a KT266A-based board. As we mentioned about a week ago in our review of Iwills XP333-R, stay tuned over the next week or so, as well have a much more detailed look at the performance of modern Athlon chipsets. Suffice it to say the AD70-SR is well within the acceptable performance range for boards of this type.
