KT880, PT890, PM890, K8T890 and other novelties from VIA Technologies

British The Inquirer found updates for VIA chipset roadmaps.

As you know, at IDF VIA showcased its PT880 Pentium 4 chipset supporting dual-channel DDR. I guess next week Computex 2003 announcements will just overwhelm us. However, it seems PT880 already has a successor in 2004 VIA plans to release PT890 chipset to support dual-channel 400/533/667 MHz DDR-2, PCI Express and 800MHz FSB processors. Of course, DDR-1 backward compatibility will be provided as well. The discrete PT890 won´t be left alone without an integrated brother. PM890 will feature the Unichrome 3.0 graphics core supporting DirectX 9.

We´ve already mentioned the integrated CM400 that was being prepared for volume production. This chipset supports Pentium III and features Unichrome 2 graphics core with AGP 8X support. Of course, VIA cares not about the Pentium III sales, but rather about its own C3/Eden.

As for AMD processors, the company prepares KT880 to be released this quarter. Naturally, this Athlon XP 400MHz FSB model will support dual-channel DDR266/333/400 with ECC. For 64-bit Opteron / Athlon 64 the company plans to release K8T890 in Q1 2004 with PCI-Express support.
