The Shuttle Spacewalker AE23 i815EP Motherboard A Diamond in the Rough... By Jeff Bouton May 9, 2001   Since 1990, the Taiwan based Shuttle Computer Group Inc. has been producing high quality computer components. Providing a wide variety of products ranging from Video cards, motherboards, memory modules, and accessories has allowed Shuttle to profit in an increasingly competitive market. Their Spacewalker series of motherboards has been winning awards for several years for both quality and performance. Tonight we'll be taking a look at yet another addition to the Spacewalker family, the Shuttle Spacewalker AE23. The AE23 is an i815EPO based motherboard that offers a good balance between...

  Shuttle's AE25R Motherboard Twice The Fun By, Jeff Bouton September 25th, 2001   It seems like it was just yesterday when I was running a state of the art 486 processor at 33MHz. and a whopping 16MB of RAM.  A hot new game called Doom had everyone talking and I had just installed a brand new 2X CD-ROM drive in my rig.  Since then (thankfully), the industry has seen a steady influx of new technologies, as well as improvements upon existing ones, that have raised the bar of performance to what at the time seemed improbable.  Countless times through the years we?ve heard statements that a certain product had reached its limit, and a few months later the limit would be...

The past couple of days I?ve had a chance to get familiar with Shuttle?s new AV61 motherboard based on the VIA 133 chipset.  I hit a few speed bumps along the way, but ended up pleased.  This board has a strong list of features, at a fantastic price point, so if your itching to replace your BX mobo, and the i820/RAMBUS combo is too pricey; this is definitely worth a look. AV61 Specifications / Features VIA Apollo Pro133 vintage CPU Support (Slot 1) Pentium III/II processors: 266 ? 733+mhz Celeron processors: 266 ? 533mhz Chipset VIA VT82C693A VIA VT82C596B WinBond W83977EF-AW   Memory Support 3 SDRAM DIMMs  (3.3v, 768mb Max - PC66, PC100 and PC133) Jumperless or Jumpered CPU...

The Shuttle AK11 KT133A Based Motherboard Too bad this isn't a DDR board! By, Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta July 19, 2001 The VIA KT133A has long been the darling of the Athlon overclocking community. With excellent performance, compatibility and stability, at a great price point, is there any question why?  With the recent reduction in DDR RAM prices and wide availability of motherboards based on DDR chipsets from VIA, ALi, AMD and SiS, many people are dismissing the KT133A when considering an upgrade.  For the most part, we'd agree with these people.  The price difference between DDR RAM and standard PC133 SDRAM is marginal, and most DDR capable motherboards are only slightly...

Soyo's SY-TISU Motherboard All Overclockers Welcome By, Jeff Bouton August 20, 2001 With the July release of Intel's new Tualatin processor, we are seeing an ever increasing number motherboard manufacturers incorporating support for the new processor into their designs.  And why not?  The PIII Tualatin CPU, based on a 0.13-micron manufacturing process, it capable of running at faster speeds while requiring less power than its predecessors based on a .18-micron process.   Marry those qualities up with the i815EP's B-stepping and you have the makings of a high-performance system, capable of running virtually any of today's most intensive applications. Today we are spotlighting... Read more...
The Soyo SY-6ICA Motherboard Soyo's RAMBUS Driven i820 Offering By, Dave "Davo" Altavilla - 5/17/00 Here we are again with yet another look at a motherboard from a top notch supplier based on Intel's controversial chipset, the i820.  Whether you are interested in SDRAM supported designs with Intel's infamous MTH (memory transfer hub) or a somewhat expensive RAMBUS implementation, there is  definitely no shortage of opinions to go around about this new chipset and the motherboards designed with it.   We tend to avoid the rumor mill and chatter surrounding the industry and the products it spawns but rather approach reviews of the products made available to us with...

Soyo's SY-K7VTA - KT133 Motherboard AMD Socket A Technology From Soyo, Solid As A Rock By, Dave "Davo" Altavilla 10 / 25 / 2000   Motherboard offerings are really beginning to get overwhelming.  Why is this you ask?  Well, for starters Intel finally has true competition with AMD firmly perched in the heart of its mainstream PC product offering.  With a well rounded and entirely new platform now entrenched in the market place, there are easily 2X the number of motherboard flavors available from any given manufacturer.  Not to mention the fact that VIA has proven itself to be a formidable opponent to Intel in the chipset market, offering solutions for both CPU...

Soyo's SY-7VMA - PM133 Socket 370 Motherboard The i815 should be nervous... By, Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta 12/7/00 Competition.  It seams like that is one of the first words to come to mind when discussing the current PC hardware scene.  When you think of video, the competition between 3dfx and nVidia always comes up. Think of processors and immediately an Intel versus AMD debate breaks out.  Well folks, the bickering is about to get worse! It seems like we may have another topic to discuss, motherboard chipsets.  For years, Intel was the dominant force in the chipset arena.  AMD and Intel also had a much better relationship; in fact AMD actually manufactured...

Transcends TS-ASL3 - i815E Motherboard Straight Shooting Socket 370 Performance By Dave "Davo" Altavilla 12/5/00 It seems like the folks at Transcend only came into the PC Motherboard scene within the last year or so.  However, they have been in business making Memory Modules and Motherboards since 1988.  Perhaps the reason they seem so new to us this year at HotHardware, is because their product offering has been rounding out nicely as of recent. On our first pass with a Transcend product, we showed you one of their VIA based offerings.  This is a HotHardware look at Transcend's efforts with Intel's very popular new mainstream chipset, the i815E.  Transcend's VIA...

Abit's VP6 VIA Apollo Pro 133A Dual-CPU Motherboard Worth the trouble? By Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta February 22, 2001 Being afflicted with an addiction to PC hardware, I'm always on the lookout for my next major computer upgrade. Recently, Intel's Pentium 4 arrived on the scene but for me personally, that meant converting over to a whole new platform.  This was more than I wanted to chew on at the time but regardless, I still had that "power hungry" feeling.  Right around the same time as the P4 was making it's debut on "the net", Abit's much anticipated dual processor capable VP6 began shipping, and the wheels started turning... The VP6 is Abit's much... Read more...
