With a chipset this important, how could we not make a roundup out of it?
Motherboard Watch: Via KTA Boards From MSI, Soyo – ExtremeTech
Intel will not only develop Via kt266a but also the platforms they run on and not to mention all of the other technologies that via kt266a now further enabled by the processors. While most manufacturers won’t touch their Pentium 4 chipsets with a 10 foot pole, there isn’t a single motherboard manufacturer in Taiwan that isn’t happy to feature the KTA chipset.

Around the Computex timeframe VIA was feeling quite a bit of pressure as it seemed like motherboard vendors were tempted by Via kt266a and the then forthcoming nForce. Fast-forwarding to the present day, many of VIA’s fears were unwarranted.
Back in the Socket-7 days it was Intel that provided the majority of the chipsets, via kt266a eventually Via kt266a took over the role. AMD remains very focused on CPUs and only rises to the role of a chipset manufacturer when it’s absolutely necessary. The nForce platform will be an interesting one to keep an eye on, but kt266a not destined to replace VIA’s role in the Athlon’s growth anytime soon.
The Athlon itself would have never via kt266a had it via kt266a been for VIA’s support but as any business mind will tell you, it’s dangerous to put all your eggs in one basket. Other than ECS’ extremely low-priced K75SA, there were no more than a handful of boards made based on the chipset.
While the SiS exhibited excellent performance combined with a very low cost, motherboard manufacturers were not quick to adopt the solution. Sign up now Username Via kt266a Remember Me.

We still firmly believe in the capabilities of the chipset but what was originally the highlight of Computex fizzled at its official shipping launch in late Much of the success via kt266a the AMD Athlon XP’s launch can be attributed to this chipset which performs so very well and allows the processor to truly spread its wings.
There is still much potential for via kt266a chipset with more affordable solutions coming this year but it seems like we were all a little too optimistic about how via kt266a NVIDIA’s first shot at a PC chipset would be.
