First International Computer has been a long-time supporter of core-logic sets developed by ATI Technologies and expressed its commitment to the recently-announced RADEON 9100 IGP platform earlier this year. Today the company issued official details of its new VT35 mainboard powered by the latest chipset with integrated graphics core from ATI.
Like most RADEON 9100 IGP mainboards unveiled so far, FIC’s VT35 is a microATX product intended for OEMs and SIs, but probably not on hardware enthusiasts, even though it provides a number of capabilities for overclocking. A good thing that can be said about FIC VT35 mainboard is that it contains basically all features and capabilities needed to build a mainstream personal computer. Take a look:
- Supports Socket 478 Pentium 4 / Celeron processors with 400/533/800MHz FSB with 3.20GHz and above clock-speed;
- Can take advantage of the CPUs with the Hyper-Threading technology enabled;
- ATI RADEON 9100 IGP chipset, including RS300 IGP and IXP200 I/O controller;
- ATI RADEON 9200-class integrated graphics;
- 2 DIMM slots for up to 2GB of PC2100, PC2700 or PC3200 memory;
- 3 PCI and 1 AGP 8x slot;
- 2-channel ATA-100/66/33 integrated controller;
- Up to 6 USB 2.0 ports;
- 2 FireWire (IEEE1394) ports;
- 10/100Mbit/s Ethernet adapter from Realtek;
- 6-channel audio solution with SPDIF support from Realtek;
- FIC NOVUS features include BIOS Guardian, HotKey and Overclock Partner technologies;
- ATX Form Factor.
FIC VT35 mainboard will appear for sale later this year. Pricing is to be unveiled.
