The dual-processor market received a boost today from third-party chipset manufacturer Via, which has announced support for paired processors for the Pentium III and Pentium II platform. The Apollo Pro 133A will support up to 4GB of PC-133 memory, Via said, with the chipset aimed at the workstation and server segment of the market. The chipset integrates the 133MHz system bus, includes AGP 4x and a 133MHz memory bus which can support both ECC PC-133 synchronous memory buffered and registered. According to Via, its dual processor solution will give both bandwidth and performance suitable for memory intensive applications. Via said the chipset is available now at a cost of $34. However, a number of third-party Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers are already working to bring product to market. Sources close to Via's plans said that Tyan and MicroStar already have dual mobos using the new chipset in production. Via is also expected to announce double data rate (DDR) versions of its technology in the next week or two. ®
