VIA flogs DDR333 P4 mobo

One way to sell chipsets

VIA has intro'ed a new P4 mobo, the "first mainboard featuring the VIA Apollo P4X333 chipset". This is not completely surprising - licensing issues between Intel and VIA means that few Taiwanese mobo makers want to stick their neck out selling and marketing P4 boards with VIA chipsets (although some are willing, obviously to build product for VIA under the cloak of anonymity).

VIA reckons that the P4PB, an ATX board has a better feature set than any rival. You can read the spec here. It's supplied with three DDR333/266 DIMMs. five PCI, one AGP, and one CNR slots. There's also support for smart card and Memory Stick options. ®
