AOpen AK73 Pro (A)
 Date  : May 1st, 2001

 Manufacturer   : AOpen

AOpen is no stranger to the computer peripherals market, with their impressive and widely acclaimed line-up of products in numerous categories. Having had an excellent experience with their optical storage products, we were eager to see firsthand just how good AOpen's motherboards are.

Thus, to debut our motherboard reviews, we present AOpen's flagship Socket-A solution, the AK73 Pro (A). The KT133A motherboard market is viciously competitive, with all major motherboard manufacturers either planning or having released newer KT133A-based versions of their KT133 predecessors. AOpen was late for the KT133 bout, but it hopes to make up for that with its timely KT133A entry. Here's a brief technical overview of the AK73 Pro (A) :
