Motherboards using the contentious Apollo Pro 133 chipset have started appearing in Japanese electronics stores. According to this site, the chipset is being implemented in the Aopen AX63 Pro mobo at ¥16,800. The motherboard and chipset will support the 133MHz front side bus (FSB) which, according to the blurb is overclockable to 155MHz. Via's chipset is currently a matter of litigation between it and chip giant Intel. Intel was forced to delay its own 133MHz FSB implementation because of problems with its Camino i820 chipset, which is not now expected until September. There is an army of other Taiwanese mobo manufacturers which have similar products ready to ship, when they feel the time is right. ®
