Default VIA Shows Off Mainboard with Native PCI Express, AGP Interconnections

VIA’s PT890 May Come in Q1 2005

“I am in Taiwan at VIA’s head office running some tests on some new chipsets that will come out next year in January/February. Anyway, I get my hands on one of the first PT880s. This new Intel Pentium 4 chipset will support AGP and PCI Express and [dual-channel] DDR and DDR2. It’s going to be a great upgrader’s chipset,” said John Gatt, VIA Technologies’ Web Media Liaison and Technical Support specialist.

VIA indicated its plans to bring a platform logic that allows installing both PCI Express and AGP 8x graphics cards on the same mainboard for the first time in early 2004. The company has delayed its PCI Express-supporting chipsets it referred as PT890 and K8T890 for approximately six month and even rejigged some of its plans since then, putting PCI Express-AGP chipsets at a later date. Presently it seems that the memory controller hub initially referred as PT890 is received from the fab and can operate; according to VIA’s representatives, the system can boot up and even play Quake III game on ATI RADEON 9800- and ATI RADEON X600-series graphics cards.
