VIA introduceert Apollo Pro 133A chipset

VIA heeft de licht verbeterde Apollo Pro 133A chipset gereleased, met support voor AGP4x, 133MHz FSB en ATA66. Allereerst ruk ik een hap uit de press release van VIA:

VIA Technologies continues it leadership role with today's introduction of the VIA Apollo Pro133A core logic chipset, the first chipset to unite AGP 4x, 133MHz FSB, PC133 memory support and ATA66. The 133MHz Front Side Bus of the VIA Apollo Pro133A optimizes the performance of platforms based on Intel's 133MHz Pentium (tm) III and other next generation processors. PC133 memory support enables the VIA Apollo Pro133A to satisfy AGP 4x's heavy bandwidth requirements and provide the highest mainstream graphics performance. The VIA Apollo Pro133A is available in mass volume now and major OEMs and Motherboard Manufacturers are already shipping Apollo Pro133A-based systems.

"With the release of the VIA Apollo Pro133A, it is evident that VIA is leading the industry in enabling new technologies," said Wenchi Chen, president and CEO, VIA. "AGP 4x, 133MHz FSB and PC133, built on the existing industry infrastructures and available immediately, are the performance standards that the Mainstream PC Market demands and which VIA provides."

[...] Key Features

- 133MHz Front Side Bus
- AGP 4x
- Supports up to 2.0 GB of 100/133MHz SDRAM and
- VCM memory types
- PCI 2.2
- ATA 33/66
- 2-4 Ports USB
- Integrated KBC, RTC
- Advanced system power management with ACPI and OnNow
- North Bridge: 510-pin BGA VT82C694X
- South Bridge: 324-pin BGA VT82C596B [break] Verder heeft The Register een nieuwsartikel over deze happening: [/break] Major OEMs and mobo makers have already started shipping the Via chipset in volume, the company said.

The move is likely to upset Intel because of the further delay it announced to the Camino i820 chipset because of problems with Rambus a couple of weeks back. Just two weeks earlier, Intel was forced to announce it would, in the future, give support to the PC-133 memory standard.

Via had a large part to play in promoting the PC-133 standard, which many Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers favoured over solutions suggested by Intel.
