VIA today confirmed its support for Intel's 0.13 micron die-shrink Pentium III - aka Tualatin - across its Socket 370 chipset family.

The Apollo Pro266T, the Apollo Pro133T, the Apollo PL133T and the Apollo PLE133T are all ready to go onto Tualatin-targeted mobos, the company said. The chipsets allow Tualatin - which is expected to begin shipping in June at 1.26GHz, 1.13GHz and 1.06GHz - to be used in single and dual-CPU DDR SDRAM-based systems, mainstream PC-133 PCs and budget machines.

VIA's chipset rival, Acer Labs, yesterday introduced its integrated Tualatin chipset, aimed at the notebook market. The part, the CyberAladdinT, integrates graphics acceleration technology from Trident.

From what we've heard, Intel will release the 1.26GHz and 1.13GHz Tualatins next month at $321 and $294, respectively, before knocking the price down to $294 and $268 on 15 July.

1.13GHz and 1.06GHz Mobile Tualatins will ship at $637 and $508, respectively. ®
