Asus has no plans for K8T890
Although it was announced as a VIA K8T890 partner last month, Asus apparently has no current plans to use the chipset. We originally previewed the K8T890 chipset back in September, but apart from a couple of motherboard announcements from Abit and Albatron, all's been pretty quiet on the K8T890 front. With ATI's Radeon Xpress and NVIDIA's nForce4 chipsets officially released, it looks like VIA may be late to the PCI Express Athlon 64 party.
Update: It appears that rumors of Asus' lack if K8T890 plans are greatly exaggerated. The rumor was apparently the result of an internal communication problem within Asus.
