Tyan dual Athlon 4 mobo goes on sale

Turns up on PriceWatch

Mobo maker Tyan has shipped - or is about to ship - its AMD760MP-based, multiple Athlon 4-based motherboard, the Thunder K7.

The board has turned up on PriceWatch for $575.

AMD is expected to introduce the 760MP and the workstation/server version of the Athlon 4 on Monday 4 June. The long-awaited 760MP will allow Athlon to operate in dual-processor systems.

VIA, meanwhile, has prepared a dual-Athlon 4 chipset of its own, the KT266DP, claims The Inquirer, and it may well announce the product on 4 June, too. The chipset has a fairly broad release schedule - the second half of the year - so expect it to ship later rather than sooner. ®
