    A64 Chipsatz mit fixem PCI/AGP Takt

    As each of our AMD64 chipsets, K8T800Pro can work with Athlon 64, Athlon FX and Opteron. Since K8T800Pro features 1GHz HT bus, I would have described as beeing optimized for new 939-pin AMD processors and 1GHz HT 754-pin processors. Michal

    Kentron QDR

    Bokill, We are still looking into QBM (Quad Band Memory) and might bring it to the market, if there is such a need. A lot on how we are going to progess on QBM depends on DDR2 adoption and performance benefits. Stay tuned... Michal

    in zukunft Single chip oder NB/Southbridge?

    Hi All, just to add my two words to this discussion. First of all of our latest NB and SB are linked with V-Link (8x, Ultra). This gives additional design flexibility. Once mainboard vendor designs the SouthBridge area, they can almost "copy-and-paste" this solution across processor...

    PCI Express Geschwindigkeiten

    mtb][sledgehammer: PCI Express 16x is 4GB/s bi-directional. Full duplex, then. 1x PCI Express card can be fitted into 1x, 2x, 4x or any bigger slot. It is not possible the other way. The sizes of slots have physical difference. Also, 2x card can fit into 2x, 4x or any bigger slot. Michal

    According to the best of my knowledge the chipset is ready. There are some boards already sampling: enough to see: I am not aware of any delay from the chipset side. I rather expect that mainboard vendors were still considering...

    Neue Southbridge - Wann?

    Stefan Bassing - a hero of all VIA Forums! Was great to have you with us! S3 is online - welcome to post any questions. Michal

    PCI Express Geschwindigkeiten

    Yes! One example (from Jetway) was on our CeBIT both. But I am sure other mainboard vendors will have 4x solutions as well. Michal

    DDR2-RAM Unterstützung

    For the DDR2 support question: Our PT890 chipset supports DDR2 400MHz, 533MHz and 667MHz. We had live demo at CeBIT... Michal

    Neue Southbridge - Wann?

    VT8251 is based on Ultra V-Link with bandwidth of 1066 MB/s. VT8251 can be linked to all of the V-Link southbridges. I expect to see in on K8, P4 and even K7 platforms, also with older southbridges. Michal

    Epia Systems clocked at 1Ghz fast enough for DivX playback?

    1GHz system is surely enough decode MPEG4 streams in full resolution. We have launched our CN400 chipset with MPEG2 and MPEG4 acceleration. This chipset will be integrated in the Nano-ITX (EPIA N-Series) and upcoming Mini-ITX (EPIA SP-series) mainboards. Michal

    Neue Southbridge - Wann?

    VT8239 was renamed to VT8251, after we decided to add PCI Express support to the Southbridge. Michal

    PCI Express Geschwindigkeiten

    Buddy, In K8T890 and PT890 chipsets we are planning 20 PCI Express lanes: 16x for graphics + 4 for additional devices. They can be flexibly implemented by the mainboard makers as 1x, 2x or 4x. Additionally, in VT8251 southbridge, we are planning 2 PCI Express lanes. Those can be...
