Interview with Abit: Regarding the VP6
Posted on: 09/29/2000 07:30 PM

I noticed this over at the [H]ardOCP. Techphiles has an interview with Scott Thirwell, a PR Specialist over at Abit.
ME: What is the expected release date for the VP6?

ST: The VP6 will be released at the beginning of October.

ME: What role do you see the VP6 playing in the mainboard field? (IE: Server based? Power user based? Hardcore Gamer based?)

ST: The VP6 plays to the SMP crowd. And a growing crowd it is. For those burning a CD and not happy that they can't do anything else on their computers, they are discovering what many already know. If you are running CPU-intensive tasks and want to mult-task, SMP is for you. Dual-CPU boards are for you. The SMP crowd covers all ranges you mention, be it for servers, for power users or gamers. The VP6 should satisfy across the board.
The SMP community is definitely experiencing a stage of incredible growth. They ph33r us, I can tell! You may want to check out the rest of the interview.
