Chipset: VIA/S3 Pro Savage PL133

North and South Bridges of the VIA PL133 chipset.

A Realtek chip has been included on the board to ensure network functionality.

The board is based on the VIA Apollo PL133 chipset, which uses the S3 graphics (S3 Savage 4) in its North Bridge. Don't expect it to work any wonders with graphics, though - memory is reserved by RAM (shared-memory system). The South Bridge (VIA VT868B version) contains an Ultra-DMA/100 controller in addition to the four USB ports. Because space is so tight, you can only install a maximum of two IDE devices in the case. The integrated graphics permit a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels, albeit only in 16 bit color. If you prefer 32 bit color, you can set the display to a maximum resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels with a maximum refresh rate of 100 Hz.
