As usual, this requires your processor to do the sound processing while the codec just supplies the information for the CPU to manipulate. MMX and overclocked it to but I was using 2. The board was damn stable in Windows operation. Windows 98 Bus Mastering Drivers. I would say that it’s a very interesting board to overclock indeed.

Note that I’ve penalized the Stability rating to 3-star due to the video-related issues.
After restarting your system should be usable as per normal. The build quality and overall operation of the board is very good but it’s badly let down by a bad video-core from Trident when did you ever hear someone boasting that he or she has Trident?
Test Configuration Processor s: Even the SB16 sounds better and more constant if you ask me. Fortunately you can disable the on-board codec in the Bios in favor of a better, dedicated sound-card. Windows 98 Bus Mastering Drivers. MMX and overclocked it to but I was using 2. The floppy connector is in front!
On board KB L2 cache One 5ns chip. D3D games like NFS4 were not fast enough running in a K even at x resolutions, which leads to a conclusion that ;ro D3D speeds are somewhat like a Riva or a little worse.
Voltage setting range from 1.

Talking about stability, I used a P. Get into the Bios and load up the Optima-Settings and then adjust minor parameters related to your own setup and you’re done! How unfortunate that we can’t use our own AGP video-cards to expand the capabilities of this board. Noticed there is por AGP slot? It used to be that the ATX and floppy connectors are ppro way behind, like in the AXPro but things got better and AOpen managed to bring the power connector to the front of the board.
As usual, this requires your processor to do the sound processing while the codec just supplies the information for the CPU to manipulate.
Even though the faults I’ve occurred are due to bad drivers, the overall gaming speed is slow! Notice that I said there is a COM-2 connector m59 the board?
This is the first time that 3DMark99 hanged on my system. The built-in Trident Blade3D is surprisingly sharp in Mxx59 for it’s Mhz RAMDAC at x, though not like a Banshee, V3 or TNT, it’s quite close to that, but don’t bother with resolutions higher than that, unless you don’t mind headaches from it’s lofty output at higher resolutions.
Only now, pdo this board, the floppy connector has been brought to the front of the motherboard too. A blue-screen of death hanged my test system while it was testing the 16MB-texture speed.
By right, there should be a more visible difference using the older but more superior MVP3 chipset. Sound is a ppro soft and not kx59 as a dedicated card. Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star.
Sad to say that it has too little enhancements to be called the MVP4 but rather MVP3e or something else with the number 3. I would say that it’s a very interesting board to overclock indeed. With the recent release of the i chipset from Intel, emphasizing more on integration by having on-board Audio and Video using their new AHA-Hub architecture and AC97 links, VIA too launched their own version which they had planned long before Intel but only delivered nowthe MVP4 chipset.
AOpen did it finally! The board was damn stable in Windows operation.

It uses the old UMA method to use system memory for the video-card’s functions. There are no manuals but there is a quick-install guide. So, as of now don’t expect good 3D games compatibility and besides it is slow!
