GA-Source heeft een review van de Soyo SY-6VZA socket370 moederplank met VIA Apollo Pro chipset op de site geplant. Hier maar weer een stukke ctrl-v:
One of the reasons I wanted to try this board in particular was to see how well VIA's Apollo Pro chipset compared to Intel's BX and ZX chipsets. In most tests other than Wintune98 it seems that the VIA chipset is around 10% slower than Intel's ZX chipset. In Wintune98, the SY-6VZA actually outperformed my comaprison boards, in some categories by quite a margin. Wintune is somewhat artificial of a benchmark, and not very gaming oriented. Quake 2 and Unreal framerates, as well as 3DMark99 showed the board to be about 10% slower, and these benchmarks are more meaningful for gamers. I tried a wide variety of differing BIOS settings in an attempt to enhance this, and was unable to do better. 10% is not completely horrible, but personally for the few dollars difference I think I would go with an Intel chipset based board such as SOYOs own SY-6IZA, which is based on Intel's ZX chipset. Having looked around a bit, I believe that the performance level that I achieved was pretty much normal for the Apollo Pro chipset in a gaming setting. The price difference between the differing chipsets is not that great, and the money would be better spent on the better motherboard to achieve the performance, rather than a faster processor.
