VIA announced today that it offers full support to the new AMD Athlon XP processor 1900+ with QuantiSpeed architecture. The AMD Athlon XP processor was specially designed to optimise the performance of the Windows XP operating system.

VIA provides a wide range of core logic chipsets for the AMD Athlon XP processor 1900+ covering all PC market segments, including the high end, mainstream, integrated and mobile PC markets. It also offers mainboard manufacturers, OEMs and system integrators a choice for building performance and value into their products.

The VIA Apollo KT266A together with the AMD Athlon XP processor 1900+ is said to make a powerful combination, designed to fully optimise the QuantiSpeed architecture developed by AMD. The VIA Apollo KT266A, featuring Performance-Driven Design and VIA Modular Architecture Platform (V-MAP) technology, has helped boost the industry's acceptance of DDR266 SDRAM memory.

"The close working relationship between VIA and AMD has benefited both companies over the years, and continues with the launch of this new processor from AMD," said Richard, Brown, Director of Marketing at VIA Technologies, Inc. "The combination of the VIA Apollo KT266A and the AMD Athlon XP processor 1900+ is a natural performance choice for the Socket A market.

"We appreciate the support of infrastructure partners such as VIA, who continue to work with AMD in driving the Socket A platform, and help improve overall AMD Athlon XP processor performance," said Rex Meek, director of the Hardware Infrastructure Enablement Group at AMD.
