VIA P4X400 Chipset
Fusing the unequalled bandwidth of AGP 8X with the Intel® Pentium®
4 processor, the VIA Apollo P4X400 with 533MHz processor bus, DDR333
, ATA-133, USB 2.0 and 8X V-Link chip interconnect, is a new paradigm
in total system performance.
Building on the success of the VIA Apollo P4X266, the first DDR266
SDRAM chipset for the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor, the VIA Apollo
P4X400 is the most feature rich and powerful chipset ever produced.
DDR333 memory support, offering 20% more memory bandwidth to the CPU,
and the ultra fast 400/533MHz processor bus unleash the full power
of today's and tomorrow's Intel® Pentium® 4 processors, enabling stunning
performance across the full spectrum of applications.
In addition, the VIA Apollo P4X400 supports the very latest I/O technologies
including AGP 8X deriving maximum performance from the most powerful
graphics cards, and new 8X V-link chip interconnect with 533MB/s of
bandwidth between North and South Bridge enabling the processor to
exploit the full potential of peripheral devices.
The VIA VT8235 South Bridge
also features first to market innovations including support for 6
USB 2.0 ports for peripheral connectivity 40 times faster than USB
1.1, and ATA-133 support, the fastest IDE interface available, making
total system performance a reality. Additional features include integrated
into the South Bridge include VIA MAC for 10/100Mbps Ethernet, integrated
PCI support, 6 Channel Surround Sound AC-97 audio and MC-97 modem.

Ultra Powerful Performance
The VIA Apollo P4X400 features the world's fastest single channel
memory controller, designed for exceptionally high performance. With
a 400MHz/533MHz processor bus and supporting DDR200/266/333 memory,
the VIA Apollo P4X400 provides lightning fast access to system memory
and can reach a peak bandwidth of 2.7 GB/sec, 20% greater than the
P4X266A, enabling the full performance potential of the fastest Intel®
Pentium® 4 processors to be harnessed.
The VT8235 South Bridge with 8X V-link, USB 2.0 and ATA-133 provides
the most advanced connectivity features to ensure the ultra fast
processor and memory are not restricted by peripheral bottlenecks.
USB 2.0 and ATA-133 high-speed transfer technologies are essential
for today's bandwidth-hungry peripherals, and greatly enhance the
performance of demanding applications including interactive gaming
and digital photography.
