Motherboard manufacturer Soyo is one of the first to support AMD's new K6-2 chip, announced just over a week ago.
AMD's K6-2 (see PC Week, 2 June) contains advanced 3D graphics capabilities, previously codenamed 3D Now. The processor is compatible with a 100MHz bus and uses the company's enhanced version of Intel's Socket 7 architecture, dubbed Super Socket 7.
Soyo's SY-5EH board boasts a 100MHz host bus developed for Socket 7 chips and allows the K6-2 to be run at 300MHZ with 100MHz synchronous DRAM with a 66MHz AGP graphics interface and a 33MHz PCI bus.
The new motherboard conforms to the Baby AT format, and offers three PCI and three ISA expansion buses. Both ATX and standard AT power connectors are supplied to allow the use of the board in different case styles and sizes. The board takes up to 1Gb of main memory, and either 512Kb or 1Mb of pipelined burst cache can be installed.
The Soyo SY-5EH boards are shipping to OEMs now.
