Kenn van Thresh's Firingsquad heeft een review gepost van de Abit ZM6, een moederplank met ZX (= gecastreerde BX6) chipset. Hoewel een low-cast plankje zitten er toch wat leuke features op:
Despite its low-cost nature, there's a lot to cover on this motherboard! The most notable is how it breaks with tradition. The 440ZX chipset supports up to 256MB of RAM on four memory banks. A standard DIMM socket allows for two banks, one for each side of the DIMM. A one-sided DIMM takes up one bank, while a two-sided DIMM takes up two banks. From this configuration, you can see that it's possible to support 256MB by using two 128MB double-sided DIMMS (thus filling up all 4 banks).
Now it's not possible to up the maximum memory allocation of the chipset, but Abit did pull a stunt by splitting the 3rd and 4th memory bank between two DIMM sockets. What does this mean? Well, you still have 4 banks and the 256MB limit, but Abit's been able to implement this through 3 DIMM sockets. This means that you'll be able to use three DIMMS as long as their bank usage adds up to 4 banks, as sockets 2 and 3 share banks 3 and 4. This means you can have two double-sided DIMMs in slots 1 and 2, or 1 double-sided DIMM in slot 1 and 2 single-sided DIMMs in slots 2 and 3.
