the Abit VP6, - the Abit VP6,
Thu Feb 22, 2001 | 8:32P| PermaLink
The Abit VP6 is a dual CPU ATX board that uses VIA's Apollo Pro 133A chipset with dual processor support. The VP6 features two FC-PGA sockets that support 66/100/133Mhz system bus speeds. It also supports Ultra DMA 100 and RAID 0, 1, and 0+1 with a High Point HTP370 IDE Controller. It offers 5 PCI, 4 DIMM, and a 4x AGP slot. The Abit VP6 is Abit's long-awaited follow-up to the old BP6 board, which pretty much brought low-cost SMP to gamers. While the BP6 was based on Intel's all-mighty 440BX chipset, Abit decided to go another way and use the VIA Apollo Pro 133A chipset for the follow-up. A wise choice it was too. The VP6 not only has all the features one can ask for in a high performance motherboard, it also has the features we don't want. You will not find a modem riser slot of any ISA slots on this board. No sir! What you will find is nothing but the good stuff. Five PCI slots, support for ATA100, built in RAID support and four DIMM slots so you can pack over two gigs of RAM if your heart desires.
