World’s Top Mainboard Maker Reportedly Cancels Plans for VIA’s AMD64 Chipset Use

@ 2004/12/05
The world’s largest maker of mainboards, ASUSTeK Computer, said in an interview with a German web-site that it has no plans to introduce a premium-class mainboard based on VIA’s latest chipset for AMD64 processors with PCI Express interconnection support because the core-logic is not “that efficient” as NVIDIA’s nForce4 product is.


In an interview to Hard Tecs 4U web-site an ASUS representative said the company currently has no plans to utilize VIA’s K8T890 core-logic, VIA’s first chipset with PCI Express interconnection for AMD Athlon 64, Athlon 64 FX and Sempron processors. Later, according to the report, the world’s leading mainboard company may reconsider its positions and include a product based on VIA’s K8T890 core-logic into the product family. Current plans of ASUS include adoption of NVIDIA nForce4 chipsets, including NVIDIA nForce4 SLI core-logic, one of the world's most advanced media and communication processors.
