Mike Andrawes heeft bij AnandTech een review gedumpt van de Gigabyte GA-6VX-4X Apollo Pro 133A moederplaat met een 5/1/1/1 (PCI/ISA/AGP/AMR) slot configuratie. Hoewel er met de performance van dit bordje helemaal niks mis is zullen overklokkers het ontbreken van een jumperless CPU setup, voltage tweaking en het geringe aantal FSB mogelijkheden als een zwaar gemis beschouwen:
Maybe we've just been spoiled, but jumperless CPU setups are what we expect in a motherboard today. Unfortunately, Gigabyte did not feel that step was necessary. While it's not the end of the world, and makes no difference if you don't tweak your system or overclock, it's not that hard to implement as evidenced by the fact that nearly every other manufacturer has done so. The minimal FSB speed selection doesn't help the overclocking situation either. Core voltage adjustments are another essential feature for overclockers that is missing here. If you use an FC-PGA CPU in a slocket adapter, it's likely that the adapter will have voltage tweaks via jumpers.
While DualBIOS is a nice feature that can certainly save you in a number of situations, it does make flashing the BIOS a little more complicated since there are physically 2 BIOS chips on board. The 6VX-4X would complain that the BIOS was corrupt even though our flash was successful and then proceeded to try to copy the backup BIOS to the main BIOS. Unfortunately, this BIOS copy would fail and the system would lockup. Fortunately, a simple reset brought the system back up, but we were stuck in a loop until we entered the DualBIOS configuration utility. From there, we were able to disable the automatic copying of the backup BIOS to the main BIOS.
