Hi, I have an PCCHIPS motherboard with an AMD-K6 3D/350. What's the type of this?
The bios is AMIBIOS and this appears down on the screen at startup: 51-0814-001437-00101111-071595-570-001_10_chipset-h

Thanks in advance

Google is your friend. 10 hits all say PC-Chips M570.

Will have to be careful here... IIRC, the first version of the M590 (only 4MB of onboard VGA RAM) did include "-M570-" in its string, too, but was later changed to avoid confusion when the 8MB VGA versions were released.

It's possible that some of the very first 8Mb Bios had this string,too

I had a dead flashed M590 8MB with a M570 Bios in it and the noted Bios-ID was similar with M570 in it's string

Does any of the M590s have _chipset-h in the ID ?
