3/11/2001: Pentium III has not died... at least in the dual area
The numerous debts of the chipsets for servants Athlon multiprocessor, already almost of one year, force the manufacturers to keep on trusting exclusively for these tasks in veteran and trustworthy Pentium III. In this context, MSI announces his new dual badge, which support for 2 processors Pentium III FC-PGA complements with 4 grooves DIMM where to place up to 2 GB of memory SDRAM PC133 (more that sufficient for most of servants).
The badge, call 694D Master's degrees, is provided also with 5 grooves PCI, 1 groove CNR and 1 groove AGP Pro Universal. Along with these we find the connectors of the checkers of discs: on the one hand, It Ultraties 100, for the devices IDE. And for the most professional end we have neither more nor less than a checker SCSI Adaptec Ultra160, with a band of up to 160 Mb / century Also, rely on with 4 ports USB (2 integrated ones and other 2 as optional expansion).
To improve the quality of the product, this one is provided with additional characteristics and proper technologies of MSI, as it is the case of Fuzzy Logic 3, which allows to recover automatically the computer of overclockings "bankrupts", Live BIOS that allows to update the BIOS easily from Internet and without going out of the operating system, and D-LED, 4 leds that help to diagnose the possible problems of the motherboard, to complement to the already habitual applications of monitoring of temperatures and fans.
And the most interesting thing is that ROUTE is based on the last review of the chipset 694XDP (the 133rd dual version of Apollo Pro), with a quite reasonable yield at a price much more accessible than the chipsets Intel with dual support.
