Apollo MVP3

                   The Apollo MVP3 is a high performance, cost effective, and energy efficient
                   chip set for the implementation of AGP, PCI, and ISA in desktop and
                   notebook personal computer systems from 66MHz to 100 MHz based on
                   64-bit Socket-7 super-scalar processors.

                   The Apollo MVP3 chipset consists of the VT82C598AT system controller
                   (476 pin BGA) and the VT82C586B PCI to ISA bridge (208 pin PQFP). The
                   VT82C598AT system controller provides superior performance between the
                   CPU, optional synchronous cache, DRAM, AGP bus, and the PCI bus with
                   pipelined, burst, and concurrent operation. The DRAM controller supports
                   standard Fast page Mode (FPM), EDO, SDRAM, and DDR SDRAM. The
                   VT82C598AT complies with the Accelerated Graphics Port Specification 1.0
                   and features support for 66/75/83/100 MHz CPU bus frequencies and the
                   66MHz AGP bus frequency. Coupled with BDDR SDRAM II, the VT82C598AT
                   allows implementation of the most flexible, reliable, and high-performance
                   DRAM interface.
