note: if cache chips are soldered to board they are FAKE chips!

It is indeed a M918 board with FAKE CACHE . So it has no L2 cache. If you run a 5x86 133MHz CPU you still will have a fast system, but the missing cache has a performance impact (expect ~20-30% loss in memory performance). However, real world performance loss is a different story and depending on the game you play.

Nice find, thanks!
This fake cache stuff is fascinating.
