    It would be nice if they'd give a bit more description about what changed. All it says is "Update new VGA BIOS."

    So how about the drivers for 2000/XP? The ones on that link apparently only support 9x/Me

    Busted... I didn't make the connection... ;-)

    I just hopped on the via site saw there was a new bios and though maybe, just maybe we'd finally have 800x480. Once I find a working floppy drive I'll update and post the results. I'm currently running linux on my system so there may be a magic modline out there, but I'm not betting the bank on it. I did have 848x480 running at one point and it looked aweful.

    Problems With 1.16, Beware!!!!

    There's some people on the ViaForums that have been reporting issues with this BIOS release
    Link 1
    Link 2
    Link 3

    I haven't jumped on it yet, I guess I'll wait till they upload XP drivers.

    I emailed via about the "*[Note] This BIOS needs working with below new VGA driver* Update new VGA BIOS" that wasn't present on the download page where the bios was placed. Got this response:
    Told I could get it here:

    But if it doesn't do 800x480 and there's a pretty decent chance that the motherboard might end up as a paperweight I'll pass for now.
