VIA VT8237R Plus South Bridge - RAID Done Right!

This product is available fully ROHS-compliant.

Ripping MP3 songs, editing the family video, emailing your holiday snaps to friends… digital media is becoming more and more part of our lives, meaning larger and larger file sizes - these days, megabytes and gigabytes have taken over from bytes and kilobytes.

Storing those memories in an efficient, powerful and affordable way is important, and older IDE standards of hard drive technologies are no longer sufficient. Serial ATA represents the new wave of storage data transfer, and RAID the best of breed new standard for multiple hard drive configurations.

VIA brings you both in the easiest to use application with the VIA VT8237R Plus South Bridge. Boasting advanced connectivity and multimedia features, the VT8237R Plus couples with current and next generation North Bridge chipsets to extend system performance across all major processor platforms.

See how VIA is again leading the industry, driving widespread adoption of the next generation storage and serial technologies through its advanced chipset architecture.


Exploring the Opportunities with VIA VT8237R Plus

The VIA VT8237R Plus South Bridge enables you to enjoy the performance, reliability and great value of Serial ATA and RAID through the advanced VIA DriveStation Controller Suite, with its user-friendly interface that allows you to "hot swap" Serial ATA hard drives, and set up your RAID configuration "on the fly", without the complicated BIOS set-up and OS reinstallations associated with other RAID applications.

VIA is all about enabling the platform for all major processors, and the unique VIA Modular Architecture Platform (V-MAP) approach provides the key. V-MAP means a fast and highly efficient North/South Bridge chipset interconnect at up to 1GB/s, it means the VT8237R Plus South Bridge can be twinned with a wide range of current and future North Bridges, and it means shorter development times, so that performance motherboards and systems reach store shelves faster.
