We are back with part two of the PM Forum. Part one covered the RDRAM support situation, the possible future of integrated graphics in the high-end market, the Athlon64 benefits, upgrade cycles of Intel chipset based motherboards, and the ability of the Opteron processor to make it in the high-end mainstream market. In part two, product managers give us feed back on topics such as VIA’s market perception, diversification of motherboard companies into other technology mediums, the roles of Intel and AMD, features to expect in motherboards down the road, and the timeline of HyperThreading to make it in the mainstream market.
