    What is this a joke or something? Via is bad enough, now they release KT400A wich is actually worse! How is this possible? It reminds me of the Lincoln Pick up truck that Ford developed that was lacking 4 wheel drive. terrible. :shoot2:

    This is rather a pointless thread obviously made by someone who doesn't want to understand the chipset at all. :cheers:

    What's wrong with a pickup truck without 4 WD?? As in all things ... including chipsets ... there will always be someone who expects more.

    Im going to say VIA is thinking budget. Obviously nVidia has the AMD Chipset crown, so VIA put out a chipset that can handel the new bartons and such, but can be afordable for the users on a budget. And isnt that what AMD is all about? best bang for ya buck:)

    Actually the KT400A can't handle 400Mhz FSB. so KT400A seems like a waste of time, KT600 is the sucessor, KT400A will die a quick death

    Yes the KT400/A never turned out the way VIA it intended too and the A version only bettered memory control. :(

    yes the kt400A is deffo a banger in the computer world, and lets not talk about pick up trucks in a via thread he just used that for an example so dont start delving into it to much PrairieDawg or we will be here all year lol The kt400A was suppost to be the above model from the kt400 or at least thats what me and alot of other people were expecting it to be but it turns out to be a budget board, well dont you think the kt400 has enough budget boards like the GA 7VA for one, we can do without more of these we want better proformance and stability dont you think guys.
