APOLLO PRO133A DRIVER


Ever since the advent of the LX chipset you really didn’t have to worry about whether or not the board you were picking up would perform like a speed demon or a piece of junk, but our last Apollo Pro A roundup proved that statement wrong. The modifications were not particularly easy to perform, keeping this market somewhat limited, but ABIT took a big step towards broadening that market by releasing the BP6 , a dual Scoket motherboard using the iBX chipset. FIC has also implemented an optional 6-pin ATX power connector that offers power supply fan speed monitoring and control for power supplies that offer such capabilities. As with most current PC motherboard manufacturers , EPoX was formed back in the late 80’s but only in the past few years have their products been brought into the public eye, mainly because of the advent of the Internet as medium for free marketing for those companies that can produce high quality products.

VIA’s Apollo Pro A chipset has been around for 9 months now and in that time, it has become wpollo more of a contender than we originally expected it to be. Ever since the advent of the LX chipset you really didn’t have to worry about whether or not the board you were picking up would perform like a speed demon or a piece of junk, but our last Apollo Pro A apollk proved that statement wrong. With the price of Intel processors constantly dropping, and operating systems such as Windows and Linux supporting multiple processors, dual processing is apoll more and more common.

This isn’t the case as EPoX uses the saved space to help clear up some of the clutter normally associated with boards that are this crowded.

Motherboard manufacturers are still working out the issues involving their implementations of the A chipset, and because of this we have seen a number of normally reliable motherboard manufacturers release some very disappointing solutions based on VIA’s alluring chipset.

While EPoX isn’t at the very top of the list in terms of quality they have always been better than average, which for those users not running high end workstations or servers is generally enough to get them through their tasks. FIC carefully laid out the apillo to allow full length cards to sit in any of those expansion slots. This two way compatibility may not seem like much, but the 3VCA is one of the first motherboards to officially support both Zpollo in a Socket interface in the initial shipping revision of the motherboard.

For various sized companies, where intensive processing is needed, dual processor systems fit the bill perfectly.

In the past, we’ve typically found FIC boards to be average, no frills boards, that get the job done.

We rounded up twelve motherboards based on the VIA Apollo Pro and the A back in February and basically concluded that the majority of apol,o manufacturers had a lot of work to do on their solutions before they would be fit for public consumption. Log in Don’t have an account?

Despite being rated to run at MHz, with the option of overclocking it to MHz, the X chip was not covered with a heatsink. The modifications were not particularly easy to perform, keeping this market somewhat limited, but ABIT took a big step towards broadening that market by releasing the BP6a dual Scoket motherboard using the iBX chipset.

Apollk there, the race was on, with just about everyone at least planning to release a dual processor board with the Apollo Pro A. Therefore in the coming weeks, we will try to review some of the most common dual Socket motherboards available today and find out which one is the best. Log in Don’t have an account?

As always, getting the right motherboard apolll quite possibly the toughest, and quite possibly most important, part of your decision making process when you still building your system. In fact, their headquarters are practically right next to each other in Taiwan.

While we have seen A based motherboards pro1133a feature a Slot-1 connector combined with a Socket connector ala Tyan Trinity as well as those with simply a Slot-1 connector, the 3VCA is the first we have seen with solely a Socket interface. Initially, we had quite a bit of trouble with this board, but after a couple of revisions from FIC, it’s currently a decent choice for an Athlon motherboard.

It’s no surprise that FIC likes to use VIA chipsets as the two companies have worked extremely close to each other in the past. FIC has also implemented an optional 6-pin ATX power connector that offers power supply fan speed monitoring and control for power supplies that offer such capabilities. Considering that its predecessor, the Apollo Pro Plus, went unnoticed by our community due to its inability to compete with the BX chipset, our expectations for the A were naturally very low.

With the BP6, you could simply drop in two Socket processors and you were ready to go. Pro13a3, we did not notice any heat related issues in our evaluation sample.
