A Mother of a Board!
The California Graphics Photon 100 mainboard - based on the feature rich Next Generation VIA Apollo MVP3 chipset - combines a high performance, yet cost effective design with quality manufacture. The result of this is a solid, cutting edge technology platform for Socket 7 superscalar processors as they move into the 100MHz bus speed arena.
The Photon 100 is the ideal solution for desktop personal computer systems providing enhanced support for the hottest in new technologies like SDRAM memory, AGP graphics, USB connectivity, up to 2MB of L2 synchronous cache, and up to 100mhz front end bus speeds. It's flexible support of many Intel, AMD, Cyrix and IBM processors provide a wide selection of price and performance options on the system integration level.
