No surprises there, as plenty of us are using those boards. Read on for the answers. Dell returns to the stock market after six years. Combine that with the very wide Ultra V-Link connection to the northbridge and we might see some real performance from our SATA drives that are now just starting to show up in North America. Here are the supported specs shown from the white paper as well:

Keep in mind that the biggest thing that is included in this new chipset is not laid out in our block diagram, and that is VIA FastStream technology.

Dell returns to the stock market after six years. VIA’s marketing department celebrated this revamped memory controller by christening it with a new marketing name: LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture.

Audio enthusiasts looking for high quality sound will definitely want to upgrade to a discrete bit audio card, but the majority of gamers and casual listeners will probably be quite happy with what they hear from both boards.

Plus VIA aims to bring some mighty big features to future mainboards with their new southbridge.

In general, the capabilities and internal precision of the LANParty boards’ audio implementations are similar, but the nForce2 APU has the upper hand because it’s capable of encoding six-channel Dolby Digital output in real time.

Steam names the best-selling games of No Interruptions Day Shortbread. Like the KTA, the will be pin-compatible with its predecessor, so you can expect to see current KT motherboards arriving in new incarnations, first the with KTA north bridge, sohnd then with the south bridge. LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. Both boards support analog 6-channel audio and digital input and output ports, but they do so with different audio chip and codec configurations.


A reworked memory controller has given the nForce line a new lease on life.

But before we do so, we should check out a couple of other changes coming down the pike from VIA which will affect the KTA’s sund. The KTA’s FastStream64 memory controller includes “an expanded array of prefetch buffers to reduce latency in the memory controller,” according to VIA’s tech brief.

While many of us expected a dual channel memory controller on the KTA, VIA has elected to stick with the single channel bit configuration, hence the trademark name “FastStream64” noted above. The first thing that will be important to many of you is that this southbridge natively supports sund channels of Serial ATA.

I am not an audiophile and never have been. The extra bandwidth will be useful, because the will support as many as eight USB 2.

Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! VIA’s VT south bridge. In fact VIA goes as far as to say something that we have been telling you guys for a while now and that is that memory bandwidth that exceeds the Athlon’s capability to “absorb” is really just wasted for the most part.

Kt400z Previous page Next page. Despite offering two channels of DDR memory and a host of compelling features, nForce’s performance wasn’t anything to write home about, and motherboard buyers looked elsewhere. Kt400a nForce2 arrived a few months ago, and it’s fast. Before you go writing off the KTA as a non-event, though, listen up: There will be two different southbridge chips available with the KTA, the VT which is the southbridge currently in use with the KT, and the southbridge noted above in our diagram the newer VT Let’s face it, those kt400q the things we are really here to find out, but first the official package.


Can VIA really match up with the nForce2? You can be for sure that this shares some technology with their Envy24HT sound chip that recently won awards at MacWorld for Best in Show.

Also we are not in a position to judge this technology as we have never heard the solution so for the time being we will have to take VIA’s word when it comes to the VT’s kr400a quality.

The key difference between the KTA and nForce2 Ultra chipsets, at souhd as far as performance goes, is single versus dual-channel memory.
