Iwill Corporation introduces DVD266-R, the World's First DDR Dual Processor motherboard supporting Intelr Pentium III processors

January 18, 2001 Irvine, CA - Iwill Corporation today announced the world's first DDR Dual Pentium III motherboard DVD266-R featuring the long awaited VIA Apollo Pro266 Performance Chipset. Combining support for high bandwidth PC2100 DDR SDRAM with VIA's new high speed V-Link Hub Architecture, VIA's Apollo Pro266 delivers unrivaled power and scalability for the next generation of high performance servers, workstations and performance desktop systems. With support for up to Dual 1GHz Intel Pentium III processors, 4GB Registered PC2100 DDR memory, and Quad Channel ATA-100 support for up to 8 devices - Expect more from Iwill with DVD266R, the NEXT GENERATION Dual Processor motherboard.

Dual Processor Support for Intelr socket 370 Pentium IIITM processors from 500MHz to 1GHz. Dual processing or Symmetric Multiprocessing doubles the processing power of any system by sharing the workload over 2 processors. The ability to perform more than one task at a time is called Multitasking and simply put, Dual processing naturally allows better Multitasking. In addition, processor intensive applications such as 3D Studio Max from Discreetr and many other content creation applications can take significant advantage of the Dual Processors ability to process more than one transaction at a time within a single program, termed here as Multithreading. The more intensive the applications, the faster and better DVD266-R will perform.

Double Data Rate works by using both the rising and the falling edge of the clock to receive and send data, thereby delivering twice the amount of information in the same amount of time. The current peak bandwidth of PC2100 DDR reaches 2.1 GB per second, which doubles the data transfer rate of today's SDR SDRAM.

Super-Fast 133MHz FSB is now needed more than ever as the latest development in operating systems and software applications continue to tax the system hardware. With processor speeds now exceeding the 1 GHz barrier, increasing the Front Side Bus is a good way of improving overall system performance. Iwill's DVD266 series motherboard integrates VIA's new "Apollo Pro266" that comprises of VT8633 North bridge for 266MHz DDR support and VT8233 South bridge for Ultra ATA-100 support for native dual IDE channels.

Maximum Expansion opportunities are now available in the new DVD266 series design. Expansion slots are available for 5 x 32 bit PCI, 1 x Advanced Communication Riser, and 1 AGP 4X port. 4 DIMM slots support up to 4GB of registered DDR memory for those memory intensive applications.

Onboard 4.1 Channel Hardware is one way Iwill rewards its customers. State of the art in sound technology, the embedded 4.1 channel hardware sound supports 32 voice HRTF 3D extension positional audio, Environmental Audio eXtention (EAX), and is completely compatible with Microsoft's DirectSound 3D and Aureal A3D. Embraced by all gamers and users, C-media's CMI8378 sound chip is now standard on all next generation Iwill motherboards.

Iwill's Exclusive Embedded AMI ATA/100 IDE RAID provides excellent drive performance and data redundancy. IDE RAID technology provides increased drive performance by allowing multiple drives to perform the work of a single drive (RAID 0) that increases data throughput and significantly boost overall system performance - perfect for graphics workstations, CAD stations and other image- intensive applications. Mirroring data drives (RAID 1) delivers fault tolerant data protection, ensuring data availability even when a drive fails - ideal for Web and SOHO file server environments. A similar concept to SCSI RAID, Iwill's IDE RAID solution supports RAID 1, 0, 1+0, Span and Spare functions delivered in an incredibly user-friendly installation procedure and supported by a variety of operating systems.

By combining the power of Iwill's Dual processing design with our exclusive embedded IDE RAID technology, multitasking and multithreading will never be easier than now.

Microstepping Technology was developed by Iwill to offer ease in adjustment of Front Side Bus via continuous 1Mhz increments up to 200MHz. Developed for DIY users that love to experiment with over-clocking, when over-clocking goes beyond its limit, Microstepping's intelligent default function will take you back to its original setting.

With a feature rich design engineered for the consumers and, and specifications demanded by the professionals, Iwill's DVD266R truly is the Next Generation Dual Processor Motherboard.
