Unfortunately history seems to show us that like the even-numbered Star Trek movies, VIA usually needs two tries to get things right. The KT133 and KT133A, KT266 and KT266A chipsets stand as prime examples of what we mean. Even VIA's KT333 chipset had some issues just before it was released and had to be tweaked a little.
