Asus A7V333 shortly after CeBIT
The first details on Asus' new A7V333, which will be based on the KT333 from VIA, have already surfaced on the American side of T-Break. As the name suggests, the new KT333 is the first chipset from VIA to support DDR RAM according to the DDR333 standard.
The mainboard will probably be presented to the public for the first time at CeBIT 2002 (mid-March) and should be in stores a few days later. The C.O.P. is also new. (CPU Overheating Protection), which shuts down the PC as soon as the CPU cooler fails and thus protects it from death by heat. The board has 5 PCI, one AGP Pro, one CNR and three RAM slots. It also offers four USB 2.0, four USB 1.1 and optionally both C-Media 6-channel sound with S/PDIF as well as two ATA133 RAID promise ports and an IEE1394 Firewire connection.
