VIA is prepping a new lineup of chipsets for next year, bringing the new Intel supporting PT960 and PM960 to market. The first of these, the PT960, only supports single-channel memory modes despite the reference from Intel being otherwise. Aside from that, it'll support DDR2 speeds up to 1333MHz, and might find a good fit in cheap desktops or office environments as a low-cost alternative. The PM960 is likely to find a more interested audience, as it is coupled with S3 Chrome 9 HD along with many types of hardware decompression. This might make it a good fit for home theater systems.

Both of these chips are to be paired with alternating VIA southbridges, and boards based upon will start coming out in 2008.
