Epox and SIS mobo

What are epox's plans for a SIS 735 chipset based mobo and how much would it likely cost? I don't know if you will know the answer, but hey I can hope

Why would you even desire a SIS 735 board, with KT266a clearly reigning supreme here and now? I wouldn't be surprised if EPoX has no plans to use the 735. If your concerned about 333FSB Athlon support, I do for a fact know that VIA has a KT333 on the way. The KT333 will support PC2700 memory, and if there is any chance of 333FSB Athlons I'm sure it will support them.

Quite right dimmreaper.

Whilst many have published memory bandwidth scores for the 735 showing it to be quite a performer for quite a good unit price per 1000, the fact remains that driver-windows link support for that chipset may be what is causing a problem for it.

I have heard many reports about the chipsets stability issues (although I've never witnessed them).

You will find that the larger or premium quality manufacturers stay away from certain chipsets or only manufacture using them in a limited quantity of boards.

EPoX's main DDR concerns lie with their proven succesful products the 8KHA and 8K7A/+ and now the also the 8KHA+.

If people do want a SiS mainboard, there are always going to be manufacturers making them.

Admittedly SiS735 does enable manufacturers to make a cheaper DDR product due to its 1 chip design.

EPoX try to exceptional offer quality and value at a slighly higher price than budget and lower price than the more expensive mainboards.
