VIA annoncerede i dag et nyt chipset, Apollo KT133A. Det nye chipset er pin-kompatibelt med forgængeren, Apollo KT133, hvilket gør overgangen fra det gamle til det nye meget smertefri for bundkort-producenterne. KT133A undersøtter, i modsætning til KT133, 133 MHz ( 266 MHz effektiv ) FSB samt den gængse 100 ( 200 ) MHz FSB. Derudover er der også support for PowerNow! teknologien, det betyder at vi snart vil se Mobile Duron processoren, som også vil understøtte denne teknologi, der vil gøre det muligt at ændre clockfrekvensen, for at spare på strøm til den bærbare computere.
