All but a single PCI slot can take a full length card while neither of the ISA slots is capable of accepting full length cards. Unfortunately there has been a lack of quality Apollo Pro Plus solutions on the market, making the solution even more handicapped in addition to its lack of a large presence in the industry. The results are very similar for Bump-Mapping Emboss in terms of difference between the both motherboards. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. ZD Winstone 99 Results. Skip to main content.

Be the first to write a review. This is indeed very puzzling to me. I don’t think this one should have been skipped. In this board, there is an adequate gap between the DIMM slots and the above mentioned connectors but in many other boards those same connectors are nearly flushed against the DIMM slots, causing inconvenience to use the 1st DIMM slot. The results speak for themselves. The same phenomenon happened in some other minor occasions but the board and system still worked flawlessly.
In terms of fan connectors, there are only two on this board — one directly next to the chip and the other below the PCI slots at the left front of the board. The URMs have been much improved than those mogherboard on older AOpen Slot-1 boards I presume that the newer ones are made by a 3rd party manufacturer as some other boards have the same design.
The Apollo Pro Plus mainboard market is a unique one in that it has the potential to offer Intel motehrboard incredible competition, yet the solution has not been properly taken advantage of since it’s debut.

Anyway here are all the FSB settings available: AOpen allows the user to manually select the FSB setting regardless of the type of processor installed in the system, using a 6-pin jumper block that is adjacent to the last DIMM slot. Eventually, to encourage manufacturers to explore the possibilities the other slot-1 chipset held, VIA released an updated version of the Apollo Pro that was pin-compatible with the Intel BX, and called this solution the Apollo Pro Plus. Although overclocking has never been a supported practice from a manufacturer’s perspective, AOpen dedicated an entire page to overclocking and their recommended settings in the comprehensive User’s Guide that was packaged with the AX Slot 1 Computer Motherboard for Intel.

I didn’t believe the scores, so I went to download the latest version of the 4-in-1 drivers and installed it. What we see was a very slight performance drop using the new drivers. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.
The ease of integration the Apollo Pro Plus chipset provides manufacturers with allows them to produce designs similar to their Intel counterparts in a relatively easy fashion.

Suspend to Disk feature was first introduced by AOpen and it’s still available in most of their current motherboards. Alternatively, you still have the Auto selection jumper setting too. The documentation bundled with the board is absolutely top-notch, as we’ve all come to expect from AOpen.
Windows98 and even the mitherboard card are involved in the execution of this function.
The following is a tiny part I took out from the PDF manual for reference: A bigger complain other than the 3rd fan-connector would be the lack of a proper manual in booklet form! These tests ensure that each model meets the highest standards of compatibility and performance. The correct way to go about implementing this feature is motherboafd described in PDF-format manual.
I do hope AOpen realise my constant complain about the over-concised manual as I believe it is quite important to portray a finished product for a company of its size and calibre, and considering how much effort they have put into designing the motherboard.
