I've got a couple of motherboard articles here this morning with the first coming from Legion Hardware with their review on the new i845G board from ASUS that goes by the name "P4B533-VT".

ASUS has just released a brand new motherboard based on Intel's i845G chipset. The original ASUS i845G board went by the code name P4B533-V. Their latest i845G solution named the P4B533-VT incorporates many new technologies. The P4B533-VT is the first ASUS motherboard to support the next generation Pentium 4 processors from 3GHz and beyond. In fact, ASUS claim to be the first motherboard manufacture to implement Intel's latest processing technology up to 3GHz and beyond. The new CPU power design specification enables the P4B533-VT to support all past, present and future socket 478 P4 processors.

Explosive Labs follows up then with a VIA KT333 motherboard roundup review featuring motherboards from Soltek, Gigabyte, AOpen, Biostar, and Jetway.

I'll start off with a quick run through of the general aspects that this particular chipset offers. The VIA KT333 chipset obviously supports DDR333 (PC2700) memory and can reach a peak bandwidth of 2.7GB/sec, 25% greater than the KT266A. Other key features include AGP4X, ATA-100 (ATA-133 in the VT8233A), integrated six channel advanced audio through the C-Media 8738 chip, six USB ports, LPC bus, and integrated 10/100Mbps ethernet and home PNA, AC-97 audio.
