Can VIA get back in the game

With the introduction of nForce2, VIA has an immense hurdle to overcome to position itself as attractive to gamers.  The Foxconn motherboard that TweakTown recently reviewed implies that they may be thinking in a different direction.  The board is as stable as it is inexpensive, and with an AM2 Sempron, you almost have most of a system built without breaking the $100 mark.

"While VIA hasn't been able to take the performance crown from the chipset giant nVidia, it doesn't mean they have

stopped their production of chipsets. It has been some time since anything VIA has hit out shores here at

TweakTown and today we are going to give the first board we have here based on the K8T890 chipset a real going

over.

Today we test Foxconn's K8T890M2AA-KRS2H and compare it against the nForce 570 chipset to see just what this

chipset does have on offer. Is VIA back in business? We'll find out shortly!"
