Ontario--Soyo Computer Inc. has announced a pair of "all-in-one" motherboards designed for building low-cost systems with embedded features like AGP graphics, six-channel audio, USB 2.0, Firewire and 10/100 Ethernet.

The boards--the SY-P4VGA for Intel CPUs and the SY-K7VMP for AMD CPUs--are part the company's efforts to grow its channel and system integrator business. Soyo is targeting the boards to "white box" builders, channel partners, custom computer builders and system integrators.

The SY-P4VGA supports up to Pentium 4 3.06GHz processor with Hyper-Threading Technology, and the Celeron 2.8GHz processor.

The SY-K7VMP uses an AMD Socket-A Based/VIA KM400 Chipset and supports AMD Athlon XP 3000+ or Duron 1.3GHz processors.

Both are in ATX form factor. Soyo expects to launch the micro ATX version of these two models by end of this year.

"We are expanding our channel by offering these two value and complete solutions for the system integrators", said Jim Chan, director of sales and marketing.
