Japanese site PC Watch is reporting that chipset company VIA is ready to ship its Apollo Pro Plus 693A family. And that will support not only the PC-133 memory standard but also AGP4x. According to the site, there will be a version of the Apollo Pro Plus supporting PC 266 DDR synchronous memory later in the year. Intel has claimed throughout most of this year that it will not support PC-133, but VIA executives insisted earlier this year that yields on Direct Rambus memory, which the chip giant is supporting, were not sufficient and parts were too expensive for it to be a viable option. PC Watch has pictures of the VIA 693A here. ® See also VIA to debut 133MHz FSB This story contains info about PC-133 and links to earlier VIA stories.
