The Soltek 75drv5 was one of the first boards that came out using the KT333 chipset.

Basking in the success of their DRV line of motherboards, they must have thought that having a KT333 based motherboard would be a great addition to their product range.

Having excellent experience with VIA's KT266A, with their DRV2 and DRV4, Soltek then decided that they should get a motherboard out with this new chipset fast.

And so was born this motherboard, the DRV5. With their previous DRVs being widely accepted by the enthuiast market, I'm sure Soltek are hoping to produce the same magic with the 75drv5.
