- VIA and KT880 chipset?

 

We reported about this last weekend but cannot be sure exactly what is happening. VIA has a chipset planned which will offer Dual Channel memory support for the Athlon XP which we were told would be called KT680, according to our sources. Digi Times seem certain it will be called KT880, but I cannot see this happening with VIA already using the numbers with their upcoming PT880 Dual Channel chipset - only time will tell.

 

VIA Technologies will release another chipset supporting the K7 platform from Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), according to the company. The KT880 chipset, supporting a 400MHz FSB (front-side bus) and dual-channel DDR400 memory, will be the latest and last entry in VIA's K7 chipset line.

 


- Kingmax DDR433 Performance at DDR400 Pricing

 

On the hunt for some cheap quality DDR-433 RAM? Kingmax may be the answer.

 

If you're new to the computer market or want to squeeze that extra performance out of your system, Kingmax DDR-433 is for everyone. Kingmax DDR-433 memory offers total backwards compatibility at DDR-400 speeds giving a form of "future proofing" for people interested in overclocking in the future.

Next up with VIA K8T800 retail motherboard action is EPoX and their 8HDA3 which, according to INQ, is ready to roll.
