How much 'worse' is VIA's Apollo Pro running with PC133 virtual channel SDRAM than Intel's great i820 with 400 MHz direct RDRAM really? We ran Coppermine on both:
You can see that the differences aren't big. In office applications i820 has a slight edge of up to 3% over the Apollo Pro 133+, but in 3D-games the VIA chipset scores even better. Thus there' shouldn't be too much to worry about using an Apollo Pro 133+-platform with Coppermine.
