The data is safe since it’s mirrored on the other drive which is the real benefit. This codec offers genuine improvements over the standard AC97 that ships with most motherboards. Further adjustments are available for the AGP slot. The black borders are cropped to save unnecessary encoding time. If history is true, the Promise IDE controllers are usually very good performers, often times at or near the top of their class.

MSI KT3 Ultra – VIA KT Motherboard Roundup – June

We’ll start of with Sisoft Sandra. The reason it’s not considered true RAID is because if one mso fails, all data is lost. We’re seeing a continuing trend here, one that shows that running asynchronously offers a small benefit. If stability is your primary goal then the MSI should certainly be on your shortlist. Enough of the theoretical talk, let’s turn our attention to one of the first full-production motherboards to boast the new KT insignia.

We’re using Xmpeg 2.

VIA KT333 Motherboard Roundup – June 2002

As is MSI’s recent tradtion, this board comes jam-packed with features. This is what is supposed to happen with a SCSI hard drive setup and it actually works pretty well there. The demo we chose was Valley of the Jaguar, one which contains a massive amount of geometry. It seems as if Via are more than content with the performance of the KTA chipset as no major performance enhancements are evident with the KT Another bracket offers up to 4 USB 2.


We ran the benchmark at Fastest and xx32 Quality. MSI, historically, have not paid too much attention to the overclocking community. At present, only Maxtor, in the form of the DX series, currently have hard drives on the market that comply with this new standard.

MSI KT3 (Via KT Chipset)

Firstly let’s have a look at the KT chipset in a little more detail. Generally, when one IDE drive fails the system usually locks up anyway.

Expect offerings from all the major manufacturers to hit the retail shelves shortly. Fortunately, our efforts were handled impeccably by the KT3, not a single crash in over 16 hours of running Prime95 torture test and SETI concurrently.

Via, the giant Taiwanese chipset maker, were there at the beginning of the Athlon’s life-cycle with the KX In our eyes, the best has just got slightly better.

Three Kings is the DVD of choice, it’s mixture of action and dialogue make it an excellent benchmarking test. We ran at xx32 Normal preferences, sound was disabled.

The clear CMOS jumper is located quite close proximity to one of the fan headers and is really difficult to remove so save yourself some trouble and attach a small piece of tape to it. The well-received KTA mmsi been subject to a few superficial changes in its transformation to the present KT chipset.

Any reduction in time would be more than welcome. Overclocking The impressive overclocking options coupled with our new XP processor from AMD ensured that we would be furnished with a reasonable overclock. Once rebooted it guesses a decent, overclocked speed, quite clever really.

Whilst slightly improving on an already excellent chipset, we feel as if Via’s efforts were not totally convincing. This allows them to be in close proximity to the drives they service. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.
