Anyone having problems with AMD chips?

Heard a few posts...ergo "million miles an hour playback" problems etc which have been circumstantially attributed to the AMD or more specifically VIA chipsets.

Anyone running Prem successfully on these platforms and if so - which motherboard/chipset/CPU are you running.

I have a Gigabyte 72X and Athlon 1.3. I was having many problems until I got the latest mobo drivers and VIA 4-in-1 drivers. Not sure which one really did the trick but I think it was likely the mobo. Gigabyte boards come with a nice utility to easily flash the mobo. Also they have a utility called Easytune which safely and easily sets up overclocking.

I run several workstations with Premiere 6, all AMD 1Ghz with Elite K7VZA m/boards. No problems at all now, but before the Via 1430 drivers were installed the performance was terrible. Recommend you download "Raptest" from the Canopus site to test your harddrive read speed. You really need to be hitting 25 MB/s plus for reliable export-to-tape.

Any thoughts - I Have an underlying concern round all this.
