"SOYO is a pretty known brand in the US and it was one of the first brands to compete directly with the ABIT BX boards in terms of overclockability.
This is the first board we received from SOYO featuring the PM133 chipset. Well, what is VIA PM133 chipset?
The VIA ProSavageT PM133 combines the market-leading VIA Apollo Pro133A chipset with the winning S3r Savage4T 3D and S3r Savage2000T 2D graphics engines to set the new industry benchmark for integrated chipset scalability and performance in Value PC systems.
The VIA ProSavage PM133 is the first integrated chipset to offer true performance and upgradability by providing an advanced S3r Savage4T 3D and S3r Savage2000T 2D graphics core and an optional AGP interface. Combining advanced PC133, 133MHz FSB and ATA-66 technologies with the rich 2D/3D graphics capabilities of the S3r Savage4T AGP4X and S3r Savage2000T 2D graphics core, the VIA ProSavage PM133 redefines the integrated chipset standard for value desktops, notebooks and internet appliances.
It is also one of the possible solutions to counter Intel's integrated chipset, the i815E which features similar functionalities. Below is a comparison chart from VIA website comparing the three different chipsets."
