The High-Performance PC Guide heeft een review gepost van de Soyo SY-6VBA mobo met Via Apollo Pro133 chipset. Naast een ATA/66 controller heeft-ie ook een gezonde reeks busspeeds:
As for configuring the SY-6VBA, we head straight for the "Soyo Combo Setup" menu, but a glance towards the jumpers are a good preamble. Jumpers JP8 and JP9 determine the base frequency of the processor, while jumpers JP2 and JP7 set the base frequency for the system bus and determines the bus ratio for the AGP port. The options provided by these jumpers are 66Mhz, 100Mhz, and 133Mhz, and 1, 1.5, and 2 for the AGP bus ratio. Depending on the option selected by jumpers JP2 and JP7, its possible to modify the clock frequency in the "Soyo Combo Setup" menu to between 66Mhz and 83Mhz (if JP2 and JP7 are set at 66Mhz), between 90Mhz and 122Mhz (if they're set at 100Mhz), or between 124Mhz and 155Mhz (if they're set at 133Mhz). The clock frequencies thus available are: 66/75/78/81/83/90/95/100/105/110/112/113/115/117/118/120/122/124/ 126/133/135/137/140/142/144/150 and 155Mhz.
By the way, in my opinion, the "Soyo Combo Setup" is beginning to look alot like "Soft Menu II" from Abit, as far as features provided. It's now possible to vary the latency of the L2 Cache from between 1 and 15 - much like with recent BE6, BF6, and BP6 boards from Abit. It's also possible to adjust the processor's core voltage with a versatility not yet equal to "Sot Menu II", but including: +2.5%, +5%, +7.5%, and +10%. It's also possible to select the clock multiplier and change the AGP bus frequency which, is equal to the processor frequency divided by 10, 15, or 20. The working frequency of the memory can also be set according to a few choices: equal to CPU frequency, CPU frequency - PCI frequency, or CPU frequency + PCI frequency.
