Gigabyte's GA-7DX AMD760 Platform
As an alternative we had also received an early version of Gigabyte's GA-7DX motherboard. Unlike AMD's Corona it comes with VIA's 686A south bridge, which will most likely be found on most of the commercial AMD760 platforms. The GA-7DX comes with only 2 DIMM sockets, but this will probably still satisfy most users. With a secret BIOS-feature and some dipswitches we were able to adjust the FSB on this board, but unfortunately it was a too early version to run reliably at 133 MHz FSB. Thus we tested an Athlon 1000/100 in this board, as AMD was unwilling or unable to supply our German lab with an Athlon 1200/100.
