Goh, waar hebben we dat eerder gezien? Soyo heeft z'n SY-6BA+IV moederplank onder handen genomen en er een extra ATA66 controller op gezet. Hier wat geblah uit de press release:
OYO’s SY-6BA+IV motherboard has been reengineered to include an onboard ATA66 controller to power next generation high-speed hard drives. With its on-board ATA66 support, system builders now have a total of four IDE disk drive channels (two with Ultra DMA 33 and two with Ultra DMA 66 support). Soyo’s new ATX footprint motherboard also features a new clock generator that allows the CPU Frontside System Bus (FSB) and PCI bus clock to be configured 29 different ways - from 66MHz-155MHz - in order to fine-tune the system bus speed for performance-oriented applications such as 3D modeling, animation or gaming. The new design also protects overclocked systems from crashes, particularly when using PCI bus add-in cards, because the redesigned SY-6BA+IV automatically sets the PCI bus clock to a safe level when the CPU FSB is set. When users overclock the CPU FSB, the PCI bus clock will be automatically clocked to a safe level.
Other enhancements geared to overclocking include adjustable CPU Core voltage. Users can set CPU Core voltage directly through the BIOS without jumpers. The new version SY-6BA+IV also supplies power to the DIMM memory banks directly from the motherboard to improve the stability and performance of the entire system instead of supplying power from a switching power supply.
[...] The SY 6-BA+3 features 1AGP, 5PCI and 2 ISA expansion slots, and will support up to 1GB of SDRAM system memory with 4 x 168-pin DIMMs sockets. Onboard I/O includes one floppy disk connector for two floppy drives, two serial ports, one parallel port, one PS/2 mouse port, two USB ports, one IRDA (infrared) port, and one PS/2 keyboard port.
