Default VIA on the march

VIA has started sampling its K8T900 chipset, aimed at AMD processors, with support for one x16 or two x8 PCI Express connections. In addition, it brings a technology called RapidFire, which is said to enhance PCI-E performance through reduction in communication latency.

The north bridge also features four x1 lanes, 1 GHz Hyper-Transport bus and DDR400 memory, while the VT8251 south bridge provides up to five PCI slots, two ATA-133 ports, four Serial ATA ports, eight USB 2.0 ports, six or eight-channel audio and Ethernet 10/100 or Gigabit Ethernet.

I am liking VIA more and more. I can't wait for the new motherboards to come out using their new chipsets.

*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
