Via KT266 based MSI K7T266 Pro - FrostyTech.com Via KT266 based MSI K7T266 Pro
Fri Jun 15, 2001 | 4:57A| PermaLink
With the influx of DDR memory into the market place, came a craving for a high performing chipset to exploit the increased bandwidth offered by this new memory type. AMD was first to introduce a DDR chipset for the Athlon. However, the chipset wasn't widely available and was priced slightly higher than expected. ALi then jumped into the fray with their DDR enabled MaGiK1 chipset. The MaGiK1 was quickly adopted by some major motherboard OEMs and has met with some success. Many users however chose to wait for VIA's DDR offering, before spending their hard earned money on a new motherboard. VIA announced their KT266 chipset and power users began chomping at the bit. In the last couple of years, VIA has been on a roll, releasing inexpensive, yet high performing chipsets. This time around, months went by without seeing any products based on the KT266 chipset. Rumors circulated that the KT266 was not stable, or was performing far lower than expected. Then MSI's K7T266 Pro was introduced but all was not well.
