HotHardware has posted a VIA PT880 Chipset Preview
HotHardware.Com, we've taken a look at VIA's latest chipset for the Pentium 4, the PT880. VIA's PT880 is the product of a memory controller re-design, a feature-laden South Bridge, and a faster link between the two chipset components. It isn't widely available just yet, but when PT880 boards finally do arrive, representatives from VIA expect that they will cost between $70 and $90. If you take a look at our benchmark results using a VIA reference sample, you'll see the PT880's performance does not disappoint either, besting Intel's 875P on occasion. How's that for performance on a budget?
