A presentation of First International Corporation (FIC) of its motherboard offerings during the year 2000 has cast light on future technology arriving from Intel, Via and AMD. According to the document we have seen, AMD has just started sampling an Irongate 4 chipset, which will start to be produced in volume in June of this year. In the second quarter of this year, Via will go into production of KM133 chipset, and start providing samples of its Apollo FX266M chipset, with Solano production, which supports PC133, IGT and AGP4x, starting in April. Via is also releasing a Pro Media 2 product late in this quarter. In the second half of the year, Camino II (the 820e) will go into production, supporting ATA100 and 2, 4 and 6 channel audio. The Via FX266H production will start in the same time period, and so too will Solano II, which again is ATA100, and supports 2,4, and 6 channel audio. In the last quarter of this year, the Via PM266H will start to sample, and will be in production in the first quarter of next year. FIC will roll out a large number of motherboards during the year, including the FC15, the AM11, the AD11, the AM31, the FX11, the FG31, the FS33, the FR31 and the FT31. The SD11 will support Irongate 4. Many of these mobos willl support FIC's Novus technology, which sends you useful audio messages during setup including: "Caution! No CPU detected. Please check your PC" and "Caution! No VGA detected. Please check your PC". FIC's own Overclock Partner is a feature which allows processors to be overclocked from the BIOS, and is combined with a single jumper and a dipswitch which allows the system to return to default speed if any problems occur at power on. According to FIC, the system hardware is completely protected from any changes that are made at BIOS level. ® See also Intel's chipset roadmaps more like roadworks Intel's Y2K server, desktop, mobile roadmap
