iXBT heeft specificaties gepost van de vier nieuwe KX133-based mobo's die Asus in het volgend millennium uit zal brengen:
K7V - Slot A, AGP 4x, 4 memory slots with PC133 support, AC'97 audio, AMR
K7V-M - Slot A, AGP 4x, 4 memory slots with PC133 support, AC'97 + Aureal audio, AMR, LAN
X7V - Socket A, AGP 4x, 4 memory slots with PC133 SDRAM and DDR SDRAM support, audio, AMR
X7V - Socket A, AGP 4x, 4 memory slots with PC133 SDRAM and DDR SDRAM support, AMR, LAN [break] Over release dates is nog niets bekend, maar gezien het feit dat DDR reepjes en socket-A processors nog niet verkrijgbaar zijn het lijkt me logisch dat het nog wel even kan duren voordat we de X7V versies in de winkel zien liggen.
Ter aanvulling ook nog ff de reaktie van JC op dit nieuws: [/break] iXBT has info on Asus's upcoming EV-6 boards. Some neat stuff here. All of them have that "faster" kind of AGP that theoretically has double the peak bandwidth yet does hardly anything for performance, as well as four DIMM slots each supporting 133MHz SDRAM: The K7V is Slot-A while it's brother K7V-M is the same but with LAN support (and maybe better audio, according to the blurb?) on the board. The X7V is pretty much the same, except that in addition to supporting four 133MHz SDRAM DIMMs, it also supports four PC2100 DDR SDRAM DIMMs. I note that DDR SDRAM is supposed to have differently sized slots than regular SDRAM (I could be wrong with this, but it is what I've heard), so could this Asus board have two sets of four DIMM slots? Anyway, the ... they call it X7V, as well. It's the same as the X7V above, but with on-board LAN. Might this be a typo, and the board is called X7V-M?
