Ik las bij Anandtech dat ze een press release hebben gekregen van VIA Technologies over dual CPU's op hun Apollo Pro 133A chipset .
VIA offers Dual Processor Support with the VIA Apollo Pro133A Workstation/Server Chipset supports up to 4GB DRAM
Taipei, Taiwan, March 29, 2000 -- VIA Technologies, Inc., the chipset technology leader for the PC industry, announces for the first time support for dual processor configurations with its new version of the VIA Apollo Pro133A chipset. With support for up to 4GB of PC133 Registered DIMMS and 133 MHz FSB on systems with dual Intel® Pentium® II or Intel® Pentium® III processors, the VIA Apollo Pro133A increases flexibility and manageability of system design for OEMs and motherboard manufacturers, providing them the ideal platform for a wide range of memory-intensive workstation and server applications.
"With Dual Processor support on the VIA Apollo Pro133A, VIA is expanding the range of systems that can be built around VIA chipset solutions and creating cost-efficient alternatives for the industry", said Ted Lee, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at VIA Technologies. "The VIA Apollo Pro133A takes industry-proven VIA chipset technology, known for its reliability, and applies it in a new direction, the rapidly growing workstation and server market."
Integrating the industry leading features AGP4X, 133 MHz Front Side Bus and 133MHz Memory Bus, the VIA Apollo Pro133A chipset provides the most powerful, scalable core logic solution for highest-performance PC, workstation and server systems. The VIA Apollo Pro133A maximizes system performance at minimal extra cost through support for high-speed registered and unbuffered ECC PC133 SDRAM, the leading memory technology for the present workstation and server market. And with support for up to 4 GB DRAM versus other chipsets, these advanced memory technologies provide the bandwidth and performance necessary for memory heavy applications that dual processor systems continually handle.
Eigenlijk had ik hier toch veel liever iets gelezen over een dual athlon chipset ipv dual pentium maar dat komt vast nog wel.
