Note that the hard drive used in the benchmarks was only a UDMA33 hard disk. Now, since AOpen does provide the conventional Battery just in case, you don’t have to worry about unplugging the power supply. The results using a new Apollo PC chipset board is like downgrading your other system components! Log in Don’t have an account? The scores fluctuate quite a bit and I cannot really pinpoint the exact problem, so I used the best scores out of three different separate runs. Log in Don’t have an account? Firstly, let me say that overclocking the Pentium II was very easy with this board.

Ever since Intel gave up sole licensing, VIA has been creeping up and has become a popular competitor. The given CD comes with these software: It a63 one of the most successful PC companies of Taiwan, which now is an International Corporation that sell PCs mostly made from their own components.

Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star. Anyway, you should note that the generic drivers provided in Windows 98 Second Edition may not be the most stable driver around, although it worked fine during all my benchmarks.

So you can be confident that every model passes through AOpen world-renowned testing lab before it goes into production at one of the company’s ISO certified facilities. In every category, it is slower and especially in games because the design of the AGP-bus or the accompanying drivers isn’t as refined as Intel’s. What we see was a very slight performance drop using the new drivers.

In addition, the strange behaviour of these drivers seems to give varying disk benchmark results as you can see from the inconsistencies tabulated above. These tests ensure that each model meets the highest standards of compatibility and performance. There were a good number of capacitors both around the chip and a few smaller ones scattered around the board.


Best Selling in Motherboards See all. This is indeed very puzzling to me.

Slot 2 Computer Motherboard. I do hope AOpen realise my constant complain about the over-concised manual as I believe it is quite important to portray a finished product for a company of its size and calibre, and considering how much effort they have put into designing the motherboard. Instead of the standard green heatsink, there is a gold colored one unique to to AOpen’s pro line, which is mounted with thermal tape onto the chipset.

The results are very similar for all other texture sizes in terms of differnce between the both motherboards. The reason I use the word ‘truly’ is because there are some connectors located in front of the 5th PCI and 2nd ISA slots and depending whether you connect them or not, you’ll have access to use full length cards on them. Although overclocking has never been a supported practice from a manufacturer’s perspective, AOpen dedicated an entire page to overclocking and their recommended settings in the comprehensive User’s Guide that was packaged with the AX The lowest-priced item in unused and unworn condition with absolutely no signs of wear.

Slot A Computer Motherboard. But if you are dying to get your hands on a PC chipset with UDMA66 capability, then I guess this board is something that you could consider. The CPU is held in place by a retention mechanism that folds up from the board but is already in place. All but a single PCI slot can take a full length card while neither of the ISA slots is capable of accepting full length cards. This item doesn’t belong on this page.


axx63 The results are very similar for Bump-Mapping Emboss in terms of difference between the both motherboards. Even though AOpen made an Apollo Pro Plus board — the AOpen AX63 — it’s good to see one of the big boys in motherboards continuing ax36 support the third party chipset manufacturers. The available clock multipliers on the AX63 range from 1. The board is tight fitting to the ATX specification other than the placement of the floppy drive at the top of the board.

I didn’t believe the scores, so I went to download the latest version of the 4-in-1 drivers and installed it. I’m not sure if the heatsink is really gold-plated or just gold-coloured. With more and more manufacturers trying their hands at VIA’s infant solution, it’s good to see one of the big guns like AOpen support the other third party chipset manufacturers and do them justice with a well constructed board.

It’s a possible heat accumulating area because of the floppy cable going over the CPU.
