VIA KTA Motherboard Roundup

Intel will not only develop CPUs but also the platforms they run on and not to mention all of the other technologies that are now further enabled by the processors. Their former products didn’t catch many eyes, but their recent products stand out.

Time after it266a, ABIT surprises us. There is still much potential for the chipset with more affordable solutions coming this year but it seems like we were all a little too optimistic about how revolutionary NVIDIA’s first shot at a PC chipset would be.

However, we should never forget about the Iwill XPR. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. They take their time to find out what’s truly needed by users and design the best solution. The nForce platform will be an interesting one to keep an eye on, but it’s not destined to replace VIA’s role in the Athlon’s growth kf266a soon. Again, it ultimately comes down to what you need. We still firmly believe in the capabilities of the chipset but what was originally the highlight of Computex fizzled at its official shipping launch in late AMD remains very focused on CPUs and only rises to the role of a chipset manufacturer when it’s absolutely necessary.

The board performs very well and it offers some reasonable overclocking. While the SiS exhibited excellent performance combined with a very low cost, motherboard manufacturers were not quick to adopt the solution. While most manufacturers won’t touch their Pentium 4 chipsets with a 10 foot pole, there isn’t a single motherboard manufacturer in Taiwan that isn’t happy to feature vvia KTA chipset.

When it first came out, there was no doubt it was one viw the best KTA boards yet.

Log in Don’t have an account? They used to be one of the pioneers in releasing new motherboards using a new chipset, but that hasn’t been the case lately. Fast-forwarding to the present day, many of VIA’s fears were unwarranted. Around the Computex timeframe VIA was feeling quite a bit of pressure as it seemed like motherboard vendors were tempted by SiS’ and the then forthcoming nForce. Other than ECS’ extremely low-priced K75SA, there were no more than a handful of boards made based on the chipset.

The Athlon itself would have never succeeded had it not been for VIA’s support but as any business mind will tell you, it’s dangerous to put all your eggs in one basket. The chipset is by far the fastest AMD platform out there, and it’s capable of bringing out the full potential of AMD processors.

As the chipset continues to mature, we will start to see more solid KTA solutions in terms of performance and stability. It does not have the same level of flexibility with the KR7-RAID in terms of memory configuration, but it does overclock better and it has a very nice integrated audio device. At the same time a lot of manufacturers have put in some very nice features in their boards to make them stand out from the crowd. It has been a very long road for EPoX, but they have also gone a long way.

Back in the Socket-7 days it was Intel that provided the majority of the chipsets, and eventually VIA took over the role.
