Chaintech has begun shipping its first 'Grantsdale'-based ATX motherboard, the V915P, the mobo maker announced this week.

In addition to supporting 775-pin, Socket T Pentium 4 CPUs, the board provides slots for up to 4GB of 400MHz or 533MHz DDR SDRAM in dual-channel configuration. As per other based on Intel's i915P chipset, the V915P provides a PCI Express x16 bus for graphics.

The chipset supports up to four Serial ATA drives and two IDE peripherals. The board provides eight USB 2.0 ports for further device expansion. Gigabit Ethernet is standard, along with three PCI Express x1 and three 32-bit PCI slots for non-graphics add-in cards.

The board's audio sub-system comprises 7.1-channel audio support based on Intel's Hi-Def Audio technology, allowing earphone and microphone jacks to be re-tasked on the fly. S/P DIF IO is included too.

Chaintech did not disclose pricing.

The company also offers two mobos based on Intel's 'Alderwood' i925X chipset, the Z925X Zentith and the V925X Zenith VE. Both match the V915P's spec., but add RAID support to the Serial ATA drive chain, while the higher-end Z925X also incorporates IDE RAID and Firewire connectors. ®
