The contents of the well known AOpen box include the following: In every category, it is slower and especially in games because the design of the AGP-bus or the accompanying drivers isn’t as refined as Intel’s. The scores fluctuate quite a bit and I cannot really pinpoint the exact problem, so I used the best scores out of three different separate runs. The sweet spots with the AX63’s FSB frequency range depends entirely on your hardware configuration, for those of you that can’t seem to get MHz to work, MHz may be what you’re looking for, and for those of you that can’t get MHz to work reliably, there’s always MHz. The results speak for themselves. This situation continues throughout all the tests.

Windows98 and even the display card are involved in the execution of this function. All but a single PCI slot can take a full length card while neither of the ISA slots is capable of accepting full length cards.

Though setting up the board is easy with the use of the quick-start manual, it’s very irritating to find out of the motherboard features, its offerings and many meanings of the BIOS menu from the CD. I do hope AOpen realise my constant complain about the over-concised manual as I believe it is quite important to portray a finished product for a company of its size and calibre, and considering how much effort they have put into designing the motherboard.

I thought the system hung but it was just a long delay.

There are 2 methods to implement it. I didn’t believe the scores, so I went to download the latest version of the 4-in-1 drivers and installed it. The results are very similar for Bump-Mapping Emboss in terms of difference between the both motherboards. Here’s another snip from the PDF manual for a clearer picture of how this feature works: Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.


The quality of the AOpen User’s Guide isn’t as high as it could be in comparison to ABIT’s “super manual” but it’s definitely an improvement over some of the other creations it seems that manufacturers just throw together at the last minute. Any Condition Any Condition.

The item may be missing the original packaging such as the original box or bag or tags or in the original packaging but not sealed.

Skip to main content. Do not compare newer ratings to older ones, the newer ratings are much more aggressive. Alternatively, you still have the Auto selection jumper setting too. AOpen allows the user to manually select the FSB setting regardless of the type of processor installed in the system, using a 6-pin jumper block that is adjacent to the last DIMM slot. Suspend to Disk feature was first introduced by AOpen and it’s still available in most of a63 current motherboards.

This division produces far better products than Acer itself and also does its own research for new innovations not that Acer isn’t good but AOpen still does it better. Although overclocking has never been a supported practice from a manufacturer’s perspective, AOpen dedicated an entire page to overclocking and their recommended settings in the comprehensive User’s Guide that was packaged with the AX ZD Winstone 99 Results Benchmark.

aopne The documentation bundled with the board is absolutely top-notch, as we’ve all come to expect from AOpen. The scores fluctuate quite a bit and I cannot really pinpoint the exact problem, so I used the best scores out of three different separate runs.

The ease of integration the Apollo Pro Plus chipset provides manufacturers with allows them to produce designs similar to their Intel counterparts in a relatively easy fashion.


Since Acer is such a large company, they have a sister-company called AOpen, which stands for Acer-Open division now you know why it’s called AOpen? Below are more details of each, taken from the manual: The ATX back-panel is colour-coded according to the PC99 specification for easy identification and plugging in of connectors.

The correct way to go about implementing this feature is clearly described in PDF-format manual. They also manufacture lots of other peripherals and are the 2nd largest motherboard manufacturer in the world. You can resume your original work directly from hard disk without go through the Win95 booting process and run your application again. The layout of the rest of the AX63 is perfectly identical to that of the AX6BC, the majority of the empty space on the mainboard is taken up by capacitors that are strategically placed around components that are critical to stable operation of the motherboard.

Other than that difference, there is no way you could tell the AX63 apart from the BX based AX6BC other than looking at the aopem model number on the board.

Although it’s labeled, it’s hard to see them within the case in one small corner. Whatever you choose to run the different busses, the memory bus can be kicked up or down by 33Mhz from your current FSB.
