Ze schieten als paddestoelen uit de grond, die Via moederborden round-ups. Nadat net al gepost is dat Tom's Hardware 21 moederborden met Via chipsets heeft bekeken, doet DW3D nu hetzelfde met 8 van die plankjes. Als beste kwam de Abit VA6 uit de test:
When I hear the name ABIT, one of the things that comes to mind is oveclocking. This is true for many people. ABIT has been offering its quality motherboards with that particular option in mind, and was one of the first companies to implement Jumperless settings for your CPU.
VA6 is based on Apollo Pro133 chipset and uses VT82C686A chip as a South Bridge Controller. As many of you know by now, 686A is a well packed chip that helps motherboard manufacturers to save on production costs as well as valuable space on the board. It impliments some key features like built-in voltage, temperature and fan speed monitor as well as Integrated ISA Bus Controllers and 4 USB ports.
Even though there have been earlier reports about VA6 being not stable, it turned out to be a very reliable motherboard. VA6 passed through all of the test and even showed itself as a pretty fast and stable motherboard with a very good patentials for overclocking.
