While the 3DMark 2001 scores did increase along with the processor's speed,

While I was quite impressed with the Iwill BD133 overall, there are
still quite a few glaring flaws with the board in my mind. First, the
ridiculous positioning of the floppy drive connector, I don't know who thought of that,

Secondly, and most importantly, the current version I am reviewing isn't capable of running
the new Tualatin Pentium !!!'s.
an i815/E/EP chipset based motherboard right now are going to hit a
dead end at the 1.0 GHz coppermine Pentium !!!'s. Still, if you are going to buy an Intel
based board in the immediate future (for whatever reason you don't want to wait)
then give the Iwill BD133 a look... You certainly won't be disappointed by it's
performance, or low price point.
