Soltek 67KV Slot 1 VIA Apollo 133A Motherboard Review

Soltek 67KV Slot 1 VIA Apollo 133A Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Slowly but surely, 133Mhz front side bus speeds are becoming the evident standard being set. More so due to the recent release of the Intel Coppermine line of CPUs. For those of you who don't know, the Coppermine is actually the name given to the newest edition of Intel Pentium III CPUs.

System Spec's

Okay... Now here we go with the performance testing of the Soltek 67KV. The following hardware configuration was used to put the board through the benchmarks

System Configuration

Celeron 400 CPU
Soltek 67KV 133A Motherboard
Soltek SL-02A++ Slocket Adapter
96MB PC100 SDRAM (CAS-2) running at FSB + 33MHz
8.4GB Quantum Fireball CR

Winstone Performance

For this benchmark, Winstone 99 and Content Creation Winstone 2000 have been used to test the overall performance of the test bed setup. Winstone 99 (Business Winstone 99) v1.2 is used to test the overall business performance of the computer system by using applications such as MS Office 97, Lotus Smartsuite 97, etc. Content Creation Winstone 2000 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running today's Windows-based Internet content creation applications. The test focuses on top-selling Internet content creation applications.

Each test was run 3 times with the result being the average value of the 3 test runs. Higher numbers indicate better performance.

By looking at these figures, you can easily see that this board is certainly a solid performer under the given set of benchmarks. Under SiSoft Sandra 99, the memory performance was marginally less than than a 440BX with the same configuration, but that too, only marginally. Integer performance had a slightly wider gap than the floating point performance when compared to a 440BX motherboard.
