It very well was the video-card drivers and the Trident Blade3D core because no other video-card combination and drivers has hanged my system. It used to be that the ATX and floppy connectors are located way behind, like in the AXPro but things got better and AOpen managed to bring the power connector to the front of the board. Talking about stability, I used a P. MMX and overclocked it to but I was using 2. By right, there should be a more visible difference using the older but more superior MVP3 chipset.

It uses the old UMA method to use system memory for the video-card’s functions. Voltage setting range from 1. Talking about stability, I used a P. Once you’ve setup pdo system, power it up and you’ll be greeted to an AOpen logo at the corner of the RAM-test screen instead of the energy-saver logo.
As usual, this requires your processor to do the sound processing while the codec just supplies the information for the CPU to manipulate. This is the first time that 3DMark99 hanged on my system. Test Configuration Processor s: The built-in Trident Blade3D is surprisingly sharp in Windows for it’s Mhz RAMDAC at x, though not like a Banshee, V3 or TNT, it’s quite close mx599 that, but don’t bother with resolutions higher mmx59 that, unless you don’t mind headaches from it’s lofty output at higher resolutions.
It used to mx9 that the ATX and floppy connectors are located way behind, like in the AXPro but things got better and AOpen managed to bring the power connector to the front of the board. Noticed there is no AGP slot?
After restarting your system should be usable as per normal.

I would say that it’s a very interesting board to overclock indeed. MMX and overclocked it to but I was using 2.
Even though the faults I’ve mx9 are due to bad drivers, the overall gaming speed is slow! Get into the Bios and load up the Optima-Settings and then adjust minor parameters related to your own setup and you’re done! Sound is a little soft and not fluent as a dedicated card. Even the SB16 sounds better and more constant if you ask me. Windows 98 Bus Mastering Drivers.

D3D games like NFS4 were not fast enough running in a Mx9 even at x resolutions, which leads to a conclusion that its D3D speeds are somewhat like a Riva or a little worse. It very well was the video-card drivers and the Trident Blade3D core because no other video-card combination and drivers has hanged my system.
Sad to say that it has too little enhancements to be called the MVP4 but rather MVP3e or something else with the number 3. Note that I’ve penalized the Stability rating to 3-star due to the video-related issues. On board KB L2 cache One 5ns chip.
The board was damn stable in Windows operation. By right, there should be a more visible difference using the older but more superior MVP3 chipset. Windows 98 build 4.
Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star. A blue-screen of death hanged my test system while it was testing the 16MB-texture speed. AOpen did it finally!

Fortunately you can disable the on-board codec in the Bios in favor of a better, dedicated sound-card. Now this feature is similar to that of the i chipset. So, as of now don’t expect good 3D games compatibility and besides it is slow! The floppy connector is in front! There are no manuals but jx59 is a quick-install guide.
Only now, in this board, the floppy connector has been brought to the front of the motherboard too. All the benchmarks in this section show that the original AXPro reigns in performance!
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.
