of VIA P4X266
Ultra High Performance Platform
The VIA Apollo P4X266 is the most cohesive, powerful chipset platform
for the Intel Pentium? 4 processor with support for up to 4GB of
high speed, power efficient DDR SDRAM with 64 bit 266MHz memory bus,
ultra fast 400MHz Front Side Bus, and 266MB per second V-link hub
architecture connecting the North and South Bridge.
Flexible and Cost Efficient
The VIA Apollo P4X266 has flexibility built in, with support for
DDR266 SDRAM, PC133 and PC100 SDRAM, enabling system builders to
choose the specification that best fits their desired functionality
and target price points, while taking advantage of the cost and reliability
benefits of SDRAM infrastructure.
Power Efficient and Innovative
DDR266 lowers memory power consumption to 2.5 volts, balancing the
power hungry processor, while features like the integrated 3Com 10/100
Mb Ethernet Media Access Controller add value in an innovative, cost
VIA Stability and Reliability
VIA Apollo chipsets benefit from the most advanced design, manufacturing
and testing processes yielding the industry's most reliable and stable
VPX-64 64bit/66MHz PCI Controller
The VPX-64 64bit PCI Controller (model number VT8101) is a companion
chip that allows existing VIA chipsets to support high-bandwidth
64bit PCI in both 33MHz and 66MHz modes. VPX-64 enables VIA Apollo
chipsets to offer up to 533MB/s of PCI bandwidth for high end peripherals
like Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel and Ultra SCSI/320 and is perfect
for implementation in server systems based on the VIA Apollo P4X266.
VPX-64 also supports up to six traditional 32bit/33MHz PCI devices,
allowing VPX-64 equipped system designs to support no less than 10
PCI devices, and up to 12 in total. VPX-64 is available in a 27x27mm,
265 pin PGA package. VPX-64 interfaces directly to the dual mode
AGP/XIP port present in existing V-MAP compatible chipsets.
