For a chipset maker, the move of the memory controller to the CPU itself means the chipset design is much simplified. If you’re talking about performance motherboards that have all the features you want plus more there are three motherboard brands that stand out from the pack and we have them here today. The K8T Pro Two things, apparently. The nominal clock rate will remain MHz. LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing However, by making these clocks run asynchronously, VIA is delivering a big, juicy gift to overclockers everywhere, whose Athlon 64 overclocking ambitions have been frustrated by motherboards incapable of running at higher bus speeds.

Now, follow along with me here. Once you have decided what chipset you want to run on a motherboard, the next big decision is choosing exactly what motherboard to buy. Steam names the best-selling games of Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff!

Short of an all-out conversion to PCI Express, what more could anyone want out of an Athlon 64 chipset? Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Customize The Tech Report Is Topre Realforce the Realthing?

VIA K8T Pro Chipset Preview | PC Perspective

The K8T Pro Two things, apparently. Unreal Tournament Gaming: So we are thinking AMD must have a lot of confidence in it.


You really have two options; first you can go with a cheaper brand and get a motherboard that simply brings the chipset to your hands in the cheapest possible way. Find other tech and computer products like this over at Amazon’s website.

This diagram illustrates, though with an exaggeration, the benefits of additional speed and bus width on the LDT bus. LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture.

Athlon64 Motherboards: First Look at Chaintech, FIC, and MSI

Dell returns to the stock market after six years. How are they different from one another? However, nVidia says VIA’s 3. SiSoft Sandra and Synthetic: Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.

They are still going to run at MHz by default, and this bus speed increase is ONLY for trasmitting data between the processors and north bridge. NVIDIA claims this is a much more efficient and faster solution, and they are confident that current nForce chipsets will not be penalized in performance as k88t00 result of the MHz HT speed.

This chipset has none of those things.

VIA K8T Performance Motherboard Shootout – Gigabyte, MSI and ABIT

A full MHz HT bus requires very low noise circuits, and VIA claims that others cannot yet implement Hypertransport because of excessive circuit noise. VIA has made quite a point lately in literature and press releases of the fact that they are the only chipset to support fully the full-speed Mhz 1. The faster the bus and the wider it is, the more data that can be distributed between the processors and therefore memory and the rest of the components in the system.


Either nothing or lots, depending on your perspective. VIA has decided to make a pair of useful modifications to its north kt8800 before AMD’s new Socket processors arrive in force, and the K8T Pro is the product of those changes. Subscribe to our Newsletter.

The nominal clock rate will remain MHz. New Features in K8T Pro To be completely honest, the changes from the K8T to the Pro version of the chipset are not as vital as we will see in cihpset move to the K8T chipset later this year. VIA is now expanding the features on their current generation chipset and preparing it for k8t8800 upcoming features from both AMD and the industry, including Socket support, 1 GHz HyperTransport bus support and finally, the overclocking features readers have been asking for.

Some prose on Pros This section of the review is intended to undo the work of the marketing people, specifically with respect to the “Pro” or “Professional” tag. There’s nothing too earth-shattering involved, but it is an evolutionary product that will likely be at the heart of scads of Socket motherboards.
