AOpen AX45-V SiS 645 Socket 478 Motherbo - AOpen AX45-V SiS 645 Socket 478 Motherbo
Tue Mar 19, 2002 | 6:45P| PermaLink
AOpen is better known around here for their 56k modems and elegant cases, but on the web we all know them for their motherboards, and sometimes even their videocards. In this review of a SiS 645 based Intel Pentium 4 Socket 478 motherboard, we will be examining the AOpen AX45-V, and its sexy black PCB. As we have already been extremely impressed with Epox's 4SDA+ which also uses the SiS 645 chipset, I would expect so see equally good performance from this AOpen motherboard as well. With a retail price of around $150 CDN, the AOpen AX45-V is cheaper then most SDR based Pentium 4 boards out there in the market, and it performs a lot better too! Sporting the SiS 645 chipset the AX45-V has support for 400 MHz based Pentium 4's which drop into the Socket m478 from 1.5 GHz-2.2 GHz+. The SiS645 chipset, unlike current Intel chipsets has support for older 3.3V AGP videocards (1x or 2x) which is nice as it doesn't force people to upgrade their videocard when they get a new motherboard.
