VIA today launched a "feature packed" P4 DDR SDRAM-supporting mobo.

Called the P4PA, the product uses the Apollo P4X266A chipset and incorporates support for Ultra ATA/133 and USB 2.0 bottleneck-easing fast connectivity standards. The board is designed for "high performance desktop PCs, servers and workstations" based on the P4.

VIA says the P4PA will be available "soon" through distributors. Pricing is available on request.

VIA is currently in dispute with Intel over rights to use DDR-DRAM chipsets for the Pentium 4. Until this is settled, spec and pricing will take a back seat to legal issues for system builders.

Still interested? Here's the P4PA data sheet. And here is the press release.
