Sharky Extreme ha pubblicato un articolo riguardante la nuova roadmap di AMD e VIA rispettivamente per processori e chipset. Lo trovate a questo indirizzo
VIA should have their first Athlon DDR266 chipset finished or near finished by the end of 2000. Board makers had various opinions on whether or not VIA would be on time with DDR, but nobody we spoke with seemed to expect VIA or AMD Athlon DDR266 boards to actually hit the market before 2001. Believe it or not, the best hope for a shipping Athlon DDR266 chipset within the year 2000 comes from the homely ALi. If ALi can ship a chipset before VIA, ALi will be in a very strong position, much unlike their current bottom-of-the-market position. We did see several boards floating around behind the scenes with ALi chipsets, so it looks like the motherboard maker support will be there if ALi can ship first and they can get their production up. These are all very large "ifs."
