VIAArena Looks at 9 K8T890 Motherboards

Subject: Motherboards | April 7, 2005 - 10:26 AM |

VIA Arena is taking a very brief look at the features and layouts of 9 different K8T890 motherboards.  What is even more odd about this is that fact that I haven't seen a SINGLE retail board come to me from any vendor.

The K8T890 of course features support for PCI Express video cards. All of the boards feature one 16x PCIe slot and at least one PCIe x 1 slot for PCIe peripheral cards like networking, audio etc. They all also feature some standard PCI slots as well so that you can still use any existing PCI cards you may have. An explanation of the difference between PCI and PCIe can be found here.
