VIA's K8T890 chipset: PCI Express meets the Athlon 64@ 2004/09/25
Today, VIA is upping the ante again with the introduction of the K8T890 and K8T890 Pro chipsets. The K8T890 series of chipsets brings with it support for the high-speed PCI Express bus standard, along with all of the features already incorporated into the K8T800 Pro.
In all honesty, the big story here on the K8T890 chipset is PCI Express implementation. Not much else has changed on the north bridge in terms of performance or features other than that. VIA's presentation that they brought to us touches on some interesting points about the market and their chipset, so I am going to go over some of them before we delve into any numbers.
