I’m a little disappointed that SiS’s memory controllers still have relatively high access latencies, because higher latencies are the obvious reason the FX tags along behind the competition a little in most benchmarks. In reality, however, this support is complicated by a number of mitigating factors. BioShock Infinite and Metro: When Intel finally released the chipset, things got even better for VIA. No Interruptions Day Shortbread. We’ll carry out a complete complex of tests for this chipset and its competitors as soon as possible. Their total number is eight, so we are guaranteed to find at least one test where we’ll see the difference due to memory throughputs or graphics interfaces of the systems under review.

List of VIA chipsets – Wikipedia

chiset But North Bridge is a feast for the eyes. Steam names the best-selling games of VIA has been one of the biggest success stories in the Taiwanese chip market. On a more serio We did not experience these same issues with our DDR2 memory modules.

With the Coppermine embarrassment planted vividly in Intel’s memory, they required third party chipset vendors to licence the Netburst bus if they wished to produce chipsets to support the Intel Pentium 4. Besides, the reference design provides for simultaneous installation of slots for both memory types again unlike Intel.

Their total number is eight, so we are guaranteed to find at least one test where we’ll see the difference due to memory throughputs or graphics interfaces of the systems under review. This is Intel’s 9 Series chipset One foot in the past, another in the future. Find other tech and computer products like this over at Amazon UK’s website. Unfortunately, we had to do our tests over the weekend, which made it impossible to find a solution for these issues on short notice.


Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing I could see myself recommending a FX-based motherboard to a friend looking to upgrade his system without throwing out his existing DIMMs. The low-level evaluation of performance is certainly interesting, but the results of tests in real applications are more important. Sergei Pikalov peek ixbt.

Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Each lane will very likely be used to power a PCI-E x1 slot or onboard peripheral.

VIA’s PT880 Pro and PT894 series chipsets

No Interruptions Day Shortbread. In lateIntel and VIA suddenly dropped their lawsuits against each other. Customize The Tech Report Both pairs are approximately on a par in Doom 3 in all modes. So it’s theoretically possible to see the PT Pro together with the VT, but considering the pt880 positioning of this chipset, the chances are not very high.

VIA PT Pro is a product, which is noticeably late on the market, but still undoubtedly interesting. Soon after the P4X chipset was released. This allowed VIA the opportunity to begin producing chipsets for the Pentium 4 with the blessings of Intel. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff!


The VIA PT and SiS FX chipsets – The Tech Report – Page 16

Intel, Nvidia were Q4’s graphics chip winners. A first look at Gigabyte’s next-gen Intel motherboards The eight series plus one.

Pseudo random access latency in VIA PT Pro is somewhere between the two Intel chipsets; iPE is again the leader; the difference between the contenders is not very large here.

The price for end user solutions is promised to ppt880 low due to the low disbursing price for the chipset as well as a simple PCB layout, and rich integrated functionality.

Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! VIA has also transitioned to a new flip-chip package for these chips to allow for higher memory controller speeds. On a more serio The K8T for the Athlon 64 will remain in a wirebond package. Log in Don’t have an account? This chipset was simply the P4X chipset with its memory controller re-designed to support MHz memory and included AGP 8x support. Fortunately, we have come across problems only in a single application, and we still hope for a better situation in production samples.
