A small chip manufacturer has beaten Intel to the punch with an advanced graphics processor (AGP), which supports Pentium PCs.
Via?s Apollo V3 supports the Socket 7 design, which Intel will phase out in favour of its Slot 1 Pentium II design. It already has many deals with major Intel competitor AMD and we understand that Via will cooperate with AMD to target future AGP technology from the chip giant.
Although the technology, pioneered in Taiwan, is unlikely to go into production until autumn this year, that will probably make little difference to the Christmas selling season because most PC vendors will push Pentium MMX-based processors for the season.
