VIA has launched its latest AMD-oriented chipset, the Apollo KT266A.

The product supports all 200MHz and 266MHz frontside-bus Athlons and Durons, connecting them to DDR200 or DDR266 SDRAM. That, reckons VIA, gives the new part a speed advantage of up to 20 per cent over rival chipsets.

Two south-bridge chips are supported, the VT8233 and the VT8233C. Both provide "AGP4X, ATA-100 and PC133 support" plus "integrated six channel advanced audio, six USB ports, LPC bus, and integrated 10/100Mbps Ethernet and Home PNA, AC-97 audio, MC-97 modem, and support for AMD's second generation PowerNow! technology", says VIA.

The 0.22 micron chipset costs $26 in volume purchases. ®
