Ik kreeg net een mailtje van Sander Sassen over zijn Soyo SY-6BA+100 review bij HardwareCentral. De plank is gebaseerd op Intel's vetrouwde BX chipset en heeft dankzij de HighPoint HPT370 controller IDE-RAID ondersteuning aan boord. Verder bleek de SY-6BA+100 geen problemen te ondervinden van hoge bussnelheden zoals 155MHz:
Provided you’re using SDRAM specified to handle 133 MHz and a compatible graphics card the 440BX is more than capable or running at a 133 MHz busspeed. We’ve actually verified the SY-6BA+100’s stability up to its maximum 155 MHz with no problems whatsoever, although you’ll need to carefully select your components in order to be able to run it reliably at those high speeds.
The Quantum’s Fireball Plus LM HDs used in this review are actually Quantum’s 3rd generation 7200 RPM models, and it shows. Performance was top-notch when combined with the SY-6BA+100’ HPT370 RAID controller, both in single disk and RAID 0. Throughout and response was very consistent throughout all of our testing, a good indication that Quantum’s 7200 RPM rotational speed disks with 2 MB buffer come with very stringent cache management, a requirement for consistent and high overall throughput.
Overall the SY-6BA+100 performed admirably and our issues with the evaluation BIOS will undoubtedly be resolved prior to the actual product shipping. The 440BX has been awarded so many kudos that I’ll hold off on the usual bliss and blessings. The SY-6BA+100 is simply the best 440BX motherboard on the market, and a worthy successor to the 6BA+IV, period.
