Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

Taiwanese chipset manufacturer Via has now confirmed it has released its Apollo Pro133 chipset. Over the weekend, we reported that motherboards using the chipset are already for sale in Japan. It had the design ready at this year's Computex show in Taipei, but was forced to hold fire because of negotiations between it and chip giant Intel. The chipset will deliver a 33 per cent increase in memory performance over PC 100 types, claimed Via. It will support Pentium processors with 133MHz front side buses (FSBs). Unfortunately, no such processors are yet available from Intel, which has announced a delay on the parts. Via said the Apollo Pro133 will also work with PC66 based PCs using Pentium IIs and Celerons, offering the advantage of 66/100 and 100/133 memory and CPU combinations. The chipset also integrates AGP 2x, ATA-66 and support for virtual channel SDRAM. It is shipping now and costs $29 when bought in large quantities, labelled with both NatSemi and Via logos. ®
