AMD, VIA push high bus speeds

Advanced Micro Devices has announced plans to deploy the AMD-760 and AMD-770 chipsets at a 266-MHz microprocessor bus speed in 2001.

The 760 and 770 chip sets, aimed respectively at one- and two-processor systems, will feature interfaces to PC2100 and PC1600 double-data-rate (DDR) memory, four USB connections, plus a “future storage interface,” which observers said most likely will be ATA-100.

Meanwhile, Taiwan-based AMD chipset partner VIA Technologies revealed the low-end VS2-K7, the first Athlon chipset to integrate S3’s Savage4 graphics chip, and the VS-12K7, the Athlon equivalent of the VS10-P6.
