However, when I tried to use the same settings on the MS Pro, the system showed some instability, especially when running the Winstone benchmarks.
When I started the Winbench and Winstone programs, there was a long pause, a pause I’ve never encountered. The contents of the well known AOpen box include the following: ZD Winstone 99 Results. Other than that difference, there is no way you could tell the AX63 apart from the BX based AX6BC other than looking at the printed ax36 number on the board.
Once again, the benchmarks just never stop running even when we seem to have finished reviewing the product. Maybe a newer BIOS or drivers could iron some kinks out. The CPU is held in place by a retention mechanism that folds up from the board but is already in place. It’s a possible heat accumulating area because of the floppy cable going over the CPU. Anyway, here are more aaopen results drumroll The reason I use the word ‘truly’ is because there are some connectors located in front of aaopen 5th PCI and 2nd ISA slots and depending whether you aopdn them or not, you’ll have access to use full length cards on them.
The results are very similar for Bump-Mapping Emboss in terms of difference between the both motherboards. The documentation bundled with the board is absolutely top-notch, as we’ve aoen come to expect from AOpen. This is a feature that will quickly spread to most other motherboards, and it was actually first discovered by AnandTech on a Shuttle motherboard, however AOpen implemented it on the AX63 and it does add a world of expandability to the realm of the overclocker.
Save on Motherboards Trending price is based on prices over last 90 days. The results are very similar for all other sopen sizes in terms of differnce between the both motherboards. Windows 98 2nd Edition Firstly, let me say that overclocking the Pentium II was very easy with this board.
Unfortunately there has been a lack of quality Apollo Pro Plus solutions on the market, making the solution even more handicapped in addition to its lack of a large presence in the industry.
What we see was a very slight performance drop using the new drivers. I’ve included here, the info from the manual: 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. 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. Slot A Computer Motherboard. ZD Winstone 99 Results Benchmark.
Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star. AOpen allows the user to manually aoen the FSB ac63 regardless of the type of processor installed in the system, using a 6-pin jumper block that is adjacent to the last DIMM slot.
Windows98 and even the display card are involved in the as63 of this function.

Somehow, VIA still have yet to properly tune their bus mastering drivers. Whatever you choose to run the different busses, the memory bus can be kicked up aopem down by 33Mhz from your aoprn FSB. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.
The URMs have been much improved than those found on older AOpen Slot-1 boards I presume that the newer ones are made by a 3rd party manufacturer as some other boards have the same design.
The ease of integration the Apollo Pro Plus chipset provides manufacturers with allows them to produce designs similar to their Intel counterparts in a relatively easy fashion. I thought the system hung but it was just a long delay. 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.
Anyway here are all the FSB settings available: The following is a tiny part I took out from the PDF manual for reference: 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.
AOpen AX63 Pro Apollo Pro 133 Slot-1 ATX
Note that the hard drive used alpen the benchmarks was only a UDMA33 hard disk. So long the power is connected to your motherboard, it will sustain the information. I’m really aopeen what made AOpen put the floppy connector in such an awkward position.

Since my test system is different from that of Vijay’s the results I’m about to present here are a aopne different in terms of the benchmarked scores, but you should be able to make a pretty good comparison. Suspend to Aopfn feature was first introduced by AOpen and it’s still available in most of their current motherboards.
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. Windows 98 build 4. I do hope AOpen realise my constant complain about the over-concised manual qx63 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 apen motherboard.
Below are more details of each, taken from the manual: Read on to see if AOpen continues the trend of solid, well constructed, non-Intel motherboards with the introduction of the AX63Pro. The results using a new Apollo PC chipset board is like downgrading your other system components!
Though setting up the board is easy with the use of the quick-start manual, it’s very irritating to find out of the motherboard features, its offerings and many meanings of the BIOS menu from the CD. Skip to main content.
