DDR333 modules get OK for VIA chipsets
VIA is stepping up the PR pace for its DDR333-supporting chipsets.
Early results for the validation programme it's running with Advanced Validation Labs (AVL), of California, show that Kingston Technology and Micron's DDR333 memory modules work just fine with its new chipsets, VIA says.
The validation programme is intended to speed time to market, while providing a comfort blanket for OEMs.
The first iteration of VIA's DDR266 chipset platform was criticised for its poor PCI performance, and was characterised as 'buggy' by some system builders who contacted The Register.
With SiS breathing down its neck, and Intel trying to stamp on its throat, VIA is keen to show the computer trade that it retains a safe pair of hands. ®
