Gigabyte abandons VIA KT400A

| Posted: May 12, 2003 12:23 am

It seems that lately the KT400A chipset released by VIA Technology has been coping a fair bit of flack from both us here at TweakTown and others such as Tom's Hardware. To add insult to the already gaping VIA wound Gigabyte has elected to move the KT400A based GA-7VAXP-A Ultra board towards the back of its motherboard road list in favour of the more popular and proven nVidia nForce2 chipset. Here is a slight snip from the Gigabyte news release.

 

We're pleased to announce the GA-7NNXP, a flagship model of the NVIDIA nForce2 platform processors based motherboard, accompanied with the launch of AMD Athlon XP 400MHz FSB processor. The brand new GA-7NNXP inherits the extreme power of nForce2 Ultra 400 platform processors and contains the innovative "6-Dual" Miracle design to deliver an ultimate solution with unprecedented performance and rock-solid stability. The GA-7NNXP stands at the top among AMD Athlon XP platforms of Gigabyte and the entire motherboard industry.

 

With EPoX keeping its boards nForce2 based, Albatron now starting nForce2 line the waters are looking very rough for VIA.
