Another spotting of Akiba, a motherboard from Biostar based on the PT800 chipset from VIA. The name of this motherboard is P4VTB.

I think that this motherboard support the upcoming Intel Prescott CPU, because the specifications state "IntelĀ® PentiumĀ® 4 processor up to 3.06GHz(FSB533), 3.6GHz(FSB800) and Celeron Processor up to 2.6GHz". The motherboard has two memory sockets which support a maximum of 2GB DDR400 memory. It also has AGP 8X, 2 SATA ports, 2 IDE ports, 8 USB 2.0 ports, integrated VIA VT6103 LAN, RAID 0, 1 and 0+1 , AC97 integrated audio, and much more.

Price is 8980 Yen, this is around 76USD.
