Abit does the dually thang
What's better than two CPUs? How about dual processors and
dual hard drives? That's what Abit's got cooking with their new VP6 mobo, just announced:
Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C. Friday, September 22, 2000—ABIT is proud to announce the launch of the VP6. This dual processor motherboard is a follow-up to the immensely popular BP6. The VP6 is an ATX form-factor mainboard designed for use with all PIII Coppermine FC-PGA 370 Processors. It supports all normal industry standard functions, including Advanced Configuration and Power Management Interface (ACPI), AGP 1X/2X/4X and 100/133MHz SDRAM Memory Bus Settings. The VP6 features four 168-pin DIMM sockets supporting up to 2GB memory.
Drooling yet? This board does include Abit's Highpoint ATA-100 RAID controller. But Abit was careful to stress later in the announcement (full text here
) that this board is designed for Pentium IIIs, not Celerons. Sigh....
