VIA has launched a new integrated chipset for the Athlon XP. It's called the VIA ProSavageDDR KM266 and the numbers at the end indicate that is supplied with 266MHz DDR DRAM i.e. it's got fast memory.

The chipset is built on an S3 core, and the spec includes "effective AGP 8X bandwidth graphics and ultra fast ATA-133 at ultra-competitive price points". We'll have to take VIA's word for on price, as it's not saying how much the new chipset costs.

According to VIA, Ultra ATA-133 delivers 33 per cent more bandwidth between the hard drives and chipset, so performance is cranked up again. High integration and lots of drivers minimise OEM costs, the Taiwanese company says.
