The essential guide to IT transformation

Acer subsidiary ALi announced a chipset which supports both slot One and socket 370 PC systems and also includes multiple memory support for both PC-133 and PC-100. The Aladdin-Pro 4 chipset is claimed to offer high performance at a cost-effective price but may indicate uncertainty by chipset manufacturers as to where the market is heading. Intel's Slot One architecture will be completely phased out by the middle of this year, and it is thought that the ALi chipset will help overcome incompatibilities with previous socket 370 architectures. It will also help vendors cover their backs by allowing them to use old stock as Slot One heads for the chip gulag. The chipset was developed for both the desktop and notebook market and supports industry standards such as UDMA 33/66, USB and integrated 3D audio. ®
