VIA PX266 Pentium 4 Chipset Preview
Posted by Philipp Esselbach on: 02/21/2001 01:40 PM [ Print | 0 comment(s) ]
VIA Hardware has posted a preview on the VIA PX266 Pentium 4 Chipset.
Another new development is the confirmation from sources close to VIA that the PX266 will support 2 Northwood processors in SMP. However, it will NOT support Willamette processors in SMP, even Willamette processors using the 478 pin package. It appears the currently shipping Pentium 4 is not SMP capable in any form. Intel´s Foster part (Pentium 4 XEON), will not be supported by PX266 initially, but future products more server-oriented will support the XEON.
