Over at Legion Hardware they have a chipset fight set up titled the VIA P4X266 vs. SiS 645 with the contenders being the SOYO SY-P4S Dragon Ultra and Shuttle AV40/R motherboards so go and see who can stand up to the punches.
I have finally changed our Voting Poll, it's been a while. The previous poll asked if we should produce our own TweakTown Merchandise. The poll wasn't very conclusive, but nevertheless we'll see what happens in the future as far as that is concerned.
The new Voting Poll is towards your left, I'd like to encourage everyone to vote for your favourite Motherboard Chipset Manafacturer of 2001!
UPDATE - Oh boy, silly me. I forgot to add Intel to the new Voting Poll. My apologies, I simply totally forgot. If you wish to vote for Intel, please vote for "Other". Thanks!
VIA Technologies, Inc. has a news release up detailing features of their new DDR266 Based Integrated ProSavageDDR KM266 Chipset.
t-break today has in their test lab the Soltek SL-85DRV3 motherboard which is based on the VIA P4X266A chipset and features the new VT8233A southbridge which supports ATA133 so head on over and check it out.
Over at t-break they check out the new Epox 4SDA+ SiS 645 P4/DDR-333 chipset motherboard which they reckon is an awesome overclocker and think it should be at the top of your list of motherboards for those wanting to build a P4 PC.
Over at amdmb they have a preview of the NVIDIA nForce 415-D Chipset which is just like the 420-D version of the nForce chipset except there is no integrated GeForce 2 graphics core but it has the same TwinBank 128-bit memory architecture as the 420-D as well as the DASP and HyperTransport features.
