Soyo presents new motherboard

Soyo is also presenting a new mainboard based on the Intel i845D chipset, the SY-P4I Fire Dragon. The board supports Intel Pentium 4 CPUs for socket 478 and can of course also use DDR-SDRAM, as usual up to 2 GB.

The new 4-layer ATX board has on-board IDE RAID (0, 1, 0 + 1) using a highpoint controller chip that already supports Ultra-ATA/133. There is also a 6-channel audio chip (CMI 8738), a 10/100 LAN connection, a Firewire and two USB connections as well as a connection for a smart card reader on board. In addition to the two RAM slots, the board also has 6 PCI slots and an AGP-Pro slot (1.5 volts). A slot bracket with optical and coaxial S/PDIF outputs is included for digital sound output. The price and release date for Germany have not yet been determined.
