ATI presents the A3 and A4 at CeBit
ATI has recently been able to convince in the graphics card sector. Now, like nVidia has done, they want to bring chipsets onto the market. At this year's CeBit, ATI wants to present the first mainboards with the A3 and A4 to the public.
The A3 is a chipset that supports both the Pentium 3 from Intel and the entire Athlon family from AMD. The A4, on the other hand, can only be operated together with a Pentium 4 from Intel. Both have an integrated graphics core. This corresponds to the Radeon 7000. The graphics solution can use up to 64 Mbytes of system memory. But it will also be possible to use a normal AGP 4x graphics card. Both chipsets support PC1600 and PC2100 DDR-RAM. The built-in Southbridge is manufactured by ALi.
