ASUS’s new LGA775 motherboards on Grantsdale/Alderwood, SiS656, PT890/PT892 chipsets

French x86-Secret, referring to a certain presentation, informed on ASUS´s motherboard roadmap that includes solutions on Intel´s Grantsdale (i915) and Alderwood (i925) as well as on SiS´s SiS656 and VIA´s PT890/PT892.

As you can see, LGA775 motherboards will have the new model names starting with P5. The next letter seems to mark the chipset family — "G" for i915 (Grantsdale) and "A" for i925 (Alderwood). The next number will stand for the memory type supported — D1" for DDR-I and "D2" for DDR-II.

  • ASUS P5AD2 — i925X+ICH6R, LGA775, PCI-E, Dual DDR-II
  • ASUS P5GD2 — i915P+ICH6R, LGA775, PCI-E, Dual DDR-II
  • ASUS P5GD1 — i915P+ICH6R, LGA775, PCI-E, Dual DDR-I
  • ASUS P4GD1 — i915P+ICH6R, µPGA478, PCI-E, Dual DDR-I
  • ASUS P5GD2-VM — i915G+ICH6R, LGA775, PCI-E, Dual DDR-II

It´s interesting that Grantsdale-based models include Socket 478 solutions as well. Anyway, the most optimistic availability date is early May 2004.

There won´t be as many solutions on chipsets from SiS and VIA, but both Taiwanese manufacturers can be proud for providing the dual-channel support simultaneously with Intel (unlike the previous announcements).

  • ASUS P5SDC — SiS656 + SiS965, LGA775, PCI-E, Dual DDRI/DDRII
  • ASUS P5VD1 — VIA PT890 + VT8237, LGA775, PCI-E, Dual DDRI/DDRII
  • ASUS P5VD2 — VIA PT892 + VT8237, LGA775, PCI-E, AGP 8x, Dual DDR-II

Frankly speaking, I heard about VIA PT892 for the first time. Still judging by P5VD2 features, it´s likely to be a variant of PT890 supporting AGP 8x instead of PCI Express 16x.
