TheTechLounge has posted a review on VIA’s New Chipsets: PT880, PT894, PT894 Pro
Today VIA is announcing their new PT series of chipsets to the masses. The chipsets that make up the PT series represent the first real alternatives to Intel’s chipsets for the Pentium 4 platform and aim to ease the transition to PCI-Express and DDR-II. All of VIA’s PT products are covered under a ten-year cross license agreement between VIA and Intel. As expected, the majority of motherboard manufacturers will be using the PT chipsets in upcoming boards. Some of these companies include Abit, Asus, Chaintech, Biostar, DFI, EPoX, Gigabyte, MSI and Soltek. The PT chipsets cover a wide range of PCI-Express, AGP and IGP solutions for the Intel platform. VIA’s new PT chipsets include the PT880 Pro, the PT894 and the PT894 Pro. VIA has a four-tier solution with the PT chipsets: StepUp Technology, Performance, Audio and DriveStation.
