VIA skips first revision of the KT333
Rumors that the first revision of VIA's KT333 chipset should be skipped have now been confirmed. The start of the KT333 has been delayed so much that the second revision is now to be produced and will then be sold under the name KT333 from the launch on February 20th.
This means above all for VIA that the time lag is even further behind SiS, who presented their DDR333-capable SiS 745 last year. In addition, VIA's lead over the successor to the 745 (SiS 746) shrinks to a few weeks. The KT333A has to fear this more than the SiS 745, which supports neither USB 2.0 nor AGP 8X. The following table summarizes this again clearly.
