AMI intros 64-bit PCI, quad PIII/Xeon mobos

A better board than Intel inside, company claims

American Megatrends (AMI) said it has shipped its MegaPlex II motherboard which gives 64-bit PCI support using the 450NX chip set. According to the company, the board will appeal to system builders because it outperforms Intel's own board and implements the full 450NX PCI set. That means the board will support four peer-to-peer buses, including a "true" 64-bit PCI bus. No price details were provided. ®
