Super Bypass utility
If you have a very recent Athlon motherboard with an AMD 750 chipset in it, you may be able to turn on the "Super Bypass" feature (see previous story
) in order to boost performance. There's a Super Bypass utility program available for download at the AMD Zone
that supposedly only works with revision C, stepping 5 of the 751 chip. Andy tried it on our Athlon 800
system, which appears to be revision C stepping 6, and it locked up the system. There was a BIOS setting called "Bypass enabled", which was set to "on", but the utility reported bypass as off. So the utility may well be worthless, but a few of you might find it interesting.
