Via Technologies responded this week to Intel's launch of cheaper chipsets with its own low-end solution, the P4X266E, which supports the latest Pentium 4 chips with faster bus speeds. The P4X266E comes with a 533MHz system bus as well as integrated USB 2.0, a high-speed connection for printers and other devices.
