- VIA BETA AGP Driver 4.42

 

VIA has released a new BETA AGP driver which is optimized for Dual Opteron performance with the K8T800 chipset. Grab it from VIA Arena!

 


- MS and Tilt Wheel Mice

 

Digit Life has some pictures of Microsoft's upcoming Tilt Wheel technology which allows for horizontal scrolling.

 

As it is said at PC Web, Microsoft is ready to start selling new mice - with Tilt Wheel Technology. What is it for? For horizontal window scrolling!

 


- VIA PT800 shipping this month

 

Digit Life also reports that VIA's single-channel PT800 chipset will start shipping later this month. The delay has supposedly been due to problems with Serial ATA and VIA's southbridge.

 

This might seem strange for the PT800 chipset officially announced a month and a half ago (on July 8). However, according to the Taiwanese industrial sources, there are reasons for this delay, as the announcement was mostly "paper", as VIA hadn't launched the volume shipments until recently. They say the problem was about the VT8237 Southbridge compatibility, in particular, its Serial ATA controller.
