VIA's 7th Generation System Architecture
VIA's Apollo KX133 is currently the premiere chipset solution
for the AMD Athlon"!-based high-performance desktop system through its support
for the AGP4x, PC133, 200MHz front-side-bus (FSB) and ATA-66 technologies. With
implementation of AGP4x, the Apollo KX133 supports the next wave of
high-performance graphics cards to enhance your 3D gaming experience.
The Apollo KX133 supports the AMD Athlon 200MHz double-data-rate Alpha EV6-based FSB, the fastest processor bus yet for desktop PCs. This architecture provides twice the FSB throughput of current-generation 100MHz Pentium® III-based systems.
The Apollo KX133 integrates an advanced memory controller architecture that supports the wide range of PC133 and VC/133 DRAM types now available. Support for ATA-66, the latest fast-IDE transfer protocol, advances HDD access and data throughput and boosts overall system performance.
Additional notable features of the Apollo KX133 include four USB ports; AC-97 link for audio and modem; integrated hardware monitoring; and advanced power management.
