VIA P4MA Specification

Based around the acclaimed architecture of the micro VIA Apollo P4M266 chipset, the VIA P4MA mainboard supports a complete range of 478-pin Intel® Pentium®4 processors running at speeds of up to 2.2GHz and beyond. With a phenomenal set of cutting edge features, including 400MHz FSB and support for ATA/133, it is the ultimate platform for the highest performance desktop PCs, servers and workstations based on the Pentium 4 processor.

The VIA P4MA supports upto 2GB of DDR266 SDRAM via three DIMM sockets, with data transfers rates of an incredible 2.1GB per second. Overall performance is further enhanced by the VIA Apollo P4M266's high speed V-Link bus, which doubles communication bandwidth between the chipset's North and South Bridge to 266MB per second.

Additional high-end features of the VIA P4MA mainboard include an onboard Realtek RTL8100BL Fast Ethernet controller, and onboard 2-channel audio courtesy of the VIA VT1612A AC'97 codec. The Micro-ATX format board offers unsurpassed scalability options, with three PCI slots and one AGP 4X port, The VIA P4MA also comes equipped with a full set of I/O ports as well as Hardware Monitoring support.
