 EPoX 8KDA3 Review @ LegionHardware.Com:

"Therefore EPoX gave the nForce3 150 chipset a miss and offered just one Athlon64 solution based on the VIA K8T800 chipset. The arrival of the nForce3 250 chipset must have pleased the engineers over at EPoX as they have already released two boards based on the chipset. While one solution is simply the light version of the other, there are two nonetheless. EPoX has named their upper class nForce3 250 motherboard the 8KDA3 . Just last week I reviewed a Gigabyte nForce3 250 motherboard that offered every feature possible to stick on a motherboard. The K8NSNXP is an exceptional motherboard and has set the benchmark for this EPoX outfit."

 ATI IGP9100 Pro Chipset Preview @ Sudhian Media:

"Back in December, ATI finally launched their long awaited RS300 core logic dubbed the IGP9100. The IGP9100 was the first core logic with a competent onboard graphics core that would allow you to *gasp* play games decently. As preposterous as it sounds, ATI made it possible for P4 systems. The problem back with the IGP9100 was a memory controller that didn't perform quite as well as the 865G. To hopefully counteract the reduced memory performance, ATI included a feature called Surroundview that allowed IGP owners to install an ATI graphics card to allow triple head display."

That's just about going to do it for now, but if anything exciting happens I'll stop back in.  Thanks for stopping by!
