SOYO flag-waves patriotic mobo

But for which country?

SOYO's latest motherboard, the SY-P41 Fire DRAGON Pentium 4, has a "patriotic color scheme" - it comes in red, white and blue.

These are the colours of the flag of Taiwan, SOYO's homeland, but it's American patriotism the company is playing to with this limited "addition" (sic) Pentium 4 mobo. Buy a board and five bucks goes to the American Red Cross 911 appeal.

Curiously, the stars and stripes-themed Fire DRAGON etc. is available to resellers and disties worldwide. This could give Anti-American overclockers another way of burning the US flag.

Here's a little bit of spec. It's designed for Intel socket-478 CPUs, comes with 400MHz system bus and Intel's i845D DDR SDRAM-supporting chipset. One board will cost you $249. ®
