VIA has added PowerNow! support to its Apollo KT133 chipset, ready for the launch of AMD's Palomino and Morgan mobiles next year. The KT133A is pin-compatible with its predecessor and supports both 200 and 266MHz FSB.

The mobile Athlons and Durons are due in the first half of 2001, but the KT133A is also suitable for desktop applications. It supports Socket A Athlon processors with a 266MHz Front Side Bus running at speeds of 1, 1.13, and 1.2GHz.

The Apollo KT133A is a two-chip set, consisting of the 552-pin BGA VT8363A North Bridge and a choice of the 352-pin BGA VT82C686A and VT82C686B South Bridges. It supports up to 2GB of 100/133MHz SDRAM and VCM memory, and includes a 200/266MHz FSB and AGP 4x. The chipset also features four USB ports, PCI 2.2 and ATA 33/66/100.

Additional features include an integrated AC-Link for AC-97 audio and HSP modem, integrated super I/O and hardware monitoring, and integrated KBC and RTC.

TSMC manufactures the chipset in a 0.35 micron, three metal layer process. It is currently in volume production and priced at $34 in OEM quantities. ®
