Via announces P4M800 Pro IGP chipset for P4

Via today announced the P4M800 Pro chipset for Intel's Pentium 4 and Celeron processor with up to 800 MHz FSBs. The new product supports DDR2 533/400 memory modules as well as DDR 400/333/266 SDRAM and comes with an integrated graphics processor (IGP). The S3 UniChrome Pro graphics core offers HD experience with outputs to CRT, LCD and standard definition TV, and support for HDTV up to 1080p resolution, which, however, requires a compatible TV-Out or DVI encoder. If combined with the VT8237R South Bridge, the P4M800 Pro supports native Serial ATA and V-RAID (RAID 0, 1 and 0+1 arrays) as well as Gbit Ethernet.

According to Via, the P4M800 Pro is shipping to motherboard manufacturers in volume. (THG)
