By Googling the part number, it seems to be specific to Dell computers. AFAIK, Dell computers of that era are all Intel-based. I wouldn't be surprised if Dell chose the specs to work on its Intel-based PCs without worrying if it would work on AMD systems. Dell has a reputation for often using specs that are slightly different from "industry-standard" specs.

Why bother with VIA chipsets to begin with?
