Subject: Via KT400 vs DDR400

Those who have been keeping up-to-date with Via's newest chipset to be, the KT400, have probably noticed that Via has made no formal announcement reguarding DDR400 support, while several manufacturers have stated that their boards will indeed work with the memory. Thanks to the folks over at Xbit Labs have unearthed a reason as to why AMD may or may not officially support the new type of memory. Apparently the issue related to issues with the VT8368 north-bridge, causing such issues as machine instability and the ability to only use two (and in some instances, only one) of the provided memory slots when using DDR400 based memory. You can get more information by reading the entire report over at Xbit Labs.
