Jeff Lee van GamePC heeft een review gepost van de nieuwe Asus CUBX. Zoals de naam van deze plank al suggereert gaat 't om een mobootje met de aloude 440BX chipset, die als gevolg van het falen van de i820 chipset nog steeds erg populair is. Wat betreft layout steekt de CUBX erg sterk in elkaar: 6xPCI, 1xISA, 0xAMR, 4xDIMM, FC-PGA socket en additionele ATA66 controller van CMD Technologies! Overklokkers kunnen zich bovendien vermaken met een uitgebreide range busspeeds:
Moving on to the BIOS, the CUBX uses Medallion version 6.0 from Award. Along with the Medallion BIOS, the CUBX also provides a secondary backup for setting up the CPU's clock multiplier and FSB speed, via onboard dipswitches. The dipswitches are nice to have on the motherboard but are very rarely used in our opinion. In any case, the Medallion BIOS comes with many features to tweak and setup the motherboard in various ways. For example, the PCI slots can be enabled or disabled to support PCI 2.1. The ATA66 controller can also be enabled or disabled under the BIOS. Multipliers begin from 2.0 and ends at 8.0 while FSB settings starts at 66 and stops at 150 MHz. Although the multiplier range may seem small, the CUBX is able to read the multiplier lock off the newer CPUs like the Celeron 2 (all of which have multipliers over 8.0). But on a sad note, we were quite disappointed how ASUS included such meager FSB settings.
[...] So to top it off, once again ASUS has a winner with the CUBX. Going with the 440BX wasn't a bad decision on ASUS's behalf, but again, the age of the 440BX may scare off some potential buyers. Intel should be proud how the 440BX is working out so well still, even after all these years. If there was ever a hall of fame for computer components, the 440BX chipset should be accepted with out a doubt.
