Bij anand hebben ze een Gigabyte moederbord gestest, een vrij standaard ding met 1 'bijzondere' feature: een dubbele bios, voor het geval er eens iets mis gaat met het flashen. Verder is ie vrij kaal: geen voltagetweaking, en fsb tot 133 MHz.
The BX2000 avoided the more conventional jumper driven configuration, yet refrained from boasting a fully jumperless design, leaving Gigabyte with the remaining option, a single dip-switch solution. The dip-switch is an easily accessible area of the motherboard, and its possible settings are clearly documented on the motherboard directly above it. The BX2000 supports the standard set of FSB frequencies, and unfortunately doesn't feature the newer 153MHz clock generator present on the BX6 Revision 2 and the AOpen AX6BC. The 112MHz, 124MHz, and 133MHz settings should be no stranger to the BX motherboard scene, and those are the settings Gigabyte provided unofficial support for. The BX2000 also allows, via a single jumper, the user to set the AGP frequency at a 1 to 1 ratio (66MHz FSB) with the FSB frequency or a 2 to 3 ratio (100MHz FSB). Remember that the failure to include any other ratios is not the fault of the motherboard manufacturer, as the AGP clock frequency is a function of the chipset. Intel won't introduce any additional AGP clock dividers with the BX chipset, however VIA should be the first to introduce another divider with their Apollo Pro Plus 133 already announced. The bottom line? The 133MHz FSB is highly unreliable, even at the 2:3 ratio, for systems with AGP video accelerators.
