Newport Beach Our pals at OC Workbench have their mitts on details of a Gigabyte mobo supporting the Pentium 4.

The board, the site says, is called the Gigabyte 8TX, with up to 2Gb of memory support for the Rambus platform, using four RIMM sockets.

The ATX board has one AGP Pro slot, four USB ports, two channel Ultra ATA 100/66 IDE devices, five PCI 2.2 slots and a CNR slot.

The news is good news for Intel, which has been struggling to complete its own "Garibaldi" boxed motherboard design, and also has had little support so far from third party Taiwanese mobo makers. ®
