Bij Deeztech hebben ze een roundup in elkaar geknutseld van een paar Via Apollo 133A plankjes. Om het maar zachtjes uit te drukken vonden ze deze plankjes niet erg fantastisch:
This is not going to be pretty folks, so I will take this moment to recommend that anyone with a history of heart conditions, easily disgusted by low performance, or has a weak stomach to leave this article immediately. Also any small impressionable children should be supervised by an adult so as to not mistake low numbers as a good thing. We at DeezTech.Com are not held responsible in any way for damage caused by the intense uncontrollable vomitous you may suffer from in the reading and viewing of these results. Proceed with caution as I unveil the total abuse put forth on these products and their ability, or lack there of to take the beating and perform under pressure.
[...] Take a close look at these numbers folks. I ran all tests 3 times, averaged the scores and came up with what is shown. I also showed scores with everything running at spec'd speeds, as well as the highest stable attainable speeds on each. My definition of stable is the systems ability to run all benchmark suites with absolutely no errors or hangs completely through 3 times. As you can see, the Tyan falls short in all areas, and wouldn't OC substantially enough for a real performance gain. AOpen took the show with it's excellent ability to run at the higher bus speeds, showing the attention they put into the design and implementation of Via's new chipset. While it is still in it's infancy (IMHO), and doesn't quite get the numbers of our old standby the BX, it is still by far the better of the two tested Via boards and offers the hobbyist a largely more enjoyable experience.
Voor alle duidelijkheid: dat plankje wat het verst overclockt en het snelst is in Quake3, SiSoft Sandra en Winstone is geen Apollo 133A plankje, het is de AOpen AX6BC Pro Millennium met de BX chipset .
