Legion Hardware have taken a look at the new Albatron KX400+ motherboard, which, despite the model name, is based on VIA's KT333 chipset, not the anticipated KT400 chipset which is due to be released later this year. Albatron have came into a very competitive market and are trying to make a quick name for themselves by promoting the KX400+ as a DDR-400 motherboard, unofficially at least. Steven didn't seem to agree with what they had done, but it comes down to marketing I guess and whatever each individual company can do to get ahead of the competition.
On the bright side, Albatron are a very new company and have a lot to learn in this business. And learn they shall. Anyone that has half a clue about motherboards will tell you, there is a huge difference between a system running an average motherboard and a system running a high quality motherboard. I feel quality won't be a problem for Albatron, however experience will be, as they have not had the time to play with configurations and setups that other companies have had. In due time I believe we will see Albatron rise to become a highly competitive manufacturer of not only motherboards, but graphics cards and other computer devices.More information at Legion Hardware.
