DDR-SDRAM Has Finally Arrived

VIA's VT8633 Reference Platform

VIA's Reference motherboard for the Apollo Pro266 chipset was used as our first DDR-platform for Intel processors. It was tested with a Pentium III 933 as this time Intel was unable or unwilling to supply us with a 1 GHz FCPGA Pentium III CPU. We don't know if the new driver or the early stage of this motherboard were the reason that 3D-applications crashed consistently, but we could at least run several benchmarks that didn't require the AGP.
