DDR For AMD: 16 Boards With VIA KT266

Fujitsu-Siemens D1279: The Ultimate In Stability

Board revision: 1.0

The Fujitsu-Siemens board smacks of state-of-the-art production technology. Not only is it equipped with very few components, but it is also the only candidate in the test field to be fitted with an SMD voltage controller. Looking towards the future: In addition to the AMD Athlon, it accepts the AMD Palomino. Unlike the Asus A7V266, for example, this does not involve having to set any jumpers. The board is equipped with an additional voltage supply (AUX12) and also includes a corresponding adapter for standard power packs.

Adhesive strips on the SMD transistors indicate the early stage of the Siemens board.

Additional power connection - the AUX12 is located on the right of the standard jack.
