American Megatrends Inc. says it has designed around Intel's 840 chipset problems. The MegaDual dual Slot 1 Pentium III mobo runs at either 100MHz or 133MHz frontside bus and is also claimed to support the 1GHz Coppermine chips which are fast gaining a reputation for going into a sulk in dual installations. "Our server motherboard provides all the capabilities of the Intel 840 chipset without experiencing any failures that may result when using a memory repeater hub (MRH) to run SDRAM equipped with error correction code (ECC) circuitry," said Michael Patellis, AMI's motherboard product manager. AMI claims that any 840-based board with fewer than eight layers is likely to experience MRH errors, but that the MegaDual's eight-layer design gets around this. The ATX board supports up to 4GB on-board ECC SDRAM system memory, has six PCI slots, 4x AGP, on-board dual channel Ultra 160M SCSI and 10/100 Ethernet. The mobo will be available 'soon' and pricing has yet to be announced. ®
