FREMONT, CA (July 6, 2000) - SOYO, Inc. today announced the SY-K7VTA and
SY-K7VMM, a pair of new motherboards designed to maximize AMD's single
Socket-A CPUs, including the high-performance Thunderbird and
price-performing Duron processors to 1GHz.
SOYO's new SY-K7VTA pushes the microprocessor and chipset envelope to a
new level with its Socket A-based support for AMD's Spitfire or Duron
CPUs, VIA KT133 chipset and 200MHz system interface. The ATX form
factor board supports all Socket-A based AMD CPU's to 1GHz. The board
includes five 32-bit busmastering PCI slots, one 16-bit ISA slot and one
AGP slot with 4X graphics support. The board uses standard SDRAM DIMM
sockets with support to 1.5GBs of RAM.
The SY-K7VMM supports both Thunderbird and Duron CPUs, and features
VIA's KM133 chipset and 200MHz system interface. The board excels as a
high-performance component for consumer-oriented and space-saving
systems with its embedded AGP 4Xgraphics chipset and built-in AC97 CODEC
audio subsystem. The SY-K7VMM features three PCI slots and one AGP 4X
slot. The board also uses conventional SDRAM, with two DIMMs socket,
which hold up to 1GB RAM.
The advanced features of both boards make them perfect for functions
such as digital content creation, 3-D graphics processing, commercial
3-D modeling, CAD/workstation, image compression, speech recognition,
and a variety of mainstream applications.
With our Symantec software bundle,which includes Norton Anti-Virus,
Ghost and Virtual Drive, and SOYO's jumper-free advanced configuration
features our AMD Socket A boards are the highest performance, most
flexible, and best-valued motherboards on the market, according to Ming
