Via DDR solutions coming soon

COMDEX - On the show floor, mobo manufacturers Shuttle, Gigabyte, and Chaintech are all displaying early versions of Via Apollo Pro 266-based boards. Sporting DDR SDRAM, ATA/100 support, and Via's new V-Link North-to-South bridge interconnect, these PIII boards should be available starting in the first quarter of the new year. One techie we interrogated claimed a 5% performance increase with the new mobos, and he attributed much of that gain, surprisingly, to the V-Link interconnect.

Also hot: miniscule mobos with zero PCI slots and absolutely everything already built in.

More later...
