VIA Technologies announced today that its KT600 core-logic is now available for purchase by the company’s partners and that already about 20 manufacturers of mainboards had already adopted the latest Socket A product for their upcoming devices.

According to VIA, the KT600 chipset-based mainboard designs have been confirmed by around 20 manufacturers including ABIT, Acorp, Albatron, AOpen, ASUS, Azza, Biostar, Chaintech, DFI, ECS, EPoX, FIC, Gigabyte, Jetway, MSI, Shuttle, Soltek, SOYO and QDI.

VIA KT600 chipset launched a little bit more than a month ago supports all Socket A Athlon XP/Athlon/Duron processors with 200, 266 333 and now 400MHz EV-6 system bus, it support up to 4GB of PC2100, PC2700 or PC3200 (DDR400) DDR SDRAM, it offers AGP 8x slot and also utilises 8x V-Link architecture to connect North and South Bridges. Just like its predecessor, the KT400A, the KT600 also implements FastStream64 memory controller technology which uses an expanded array of prefetch buffers to reduce latency in the memory controller.

According to VIA, KT600 chipset will account for a significant portion of VIA’s revenue in July.
