However, during testing only the primary display card offered full 3D graphics acceleration with the secondary display card operating at near or non-accelerated speeds the majority of time. On the other hand, the cards that are available on the market these days are different. Nevertheless, it makes up a lot of ground lost by its predecessor, KT, which is particularly impressive because KT still relies on a single-channel memory architecture. Also, all flavors of Vinyl Audio are getting QSound support in their drivers, replacing the Sensaura algorithms formerly used. Judging by the current implementations of Intel’s series chipsets, the codecs and motherboards still need some work, though. I’ve studied the marketing materials, and near as I can tell, the HyperStreaming Architecture is, erm, well, SiS’s core-logic chipset architecture.

The VIA PT and SiS FX chipsets – The Tech Report – Page 1

We’ll check it out. So it’s theoretically possible to see the PT Pro together with the VT, but considering the low-end positioning of this chipset, the chances are not very high.


But North Bridge is a feast for the eyes. Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. The PT aced our synthetic memory tests, delivering very high bandwidth and low access latencies. One is an extra-flexible memory controller, and the other is HyperStreaming.

Thus, out of all “dual” features of the chipset we could test only two graphics interfaces. RAID 5 generally involves some CPU overhead for parity calculations, but it does offer a nice combination of performance, data integrity, and total array capacity.

Reproduction in whole or in part, in any form or medium, without express written permission of HotHardware. Yet, it’s still gunning for the same level of performance as Intel’s P ‘Canterwood’ chipset. Lower Cost, Many Core Beasts. Chipsets Previous page Next page. Also, all flavors of Vinyl Audio are getting QSound support in their drivers, replacing the Sensaura algorithms formerly used. In fact, the nForce3 and K8T chipsets generally fall within a percentage or two of each other in performance benchmarks.


The tendency is crystal clear here: A Convertible Built For Business. Last time around, we used Intel’s own typically tame motherboards to test the PE and P chipsets. SiS is making a big push for its HyperStreaming Architecture.

List of VIA chipsets

Intel to renew commitment to desktop PCs with a slew of new CPUs Four new enthusiast-friendly processors are on the way. This time out, pr880 using Abit’s spicy IC7-G, a tricked-out enthusiast’s mobo with playing-for-keeps performance. Subscribe to HH News Alerts!


When Intel finally released the chipset, things got even better for VIA. Among the improvements reportedly made to VIA’s DualStream64 memory controller, an enhanced data prefetch protocol, an improved memory branch predictor, and tighter clock timings are among the most notable. Have a look at the bottom line of the archiving diagram: Jeff Kampman This is clearly a yield-maximizing pr880 for 7 nm.

VIA PT Pro Chipset: Long-awaited Flexibility of the Socket Platform

Google Home Vs Amazon Echo: How’s that for performance on a budget? As we perused the show floor of Computex in Taipei, Taiwan this year, we noticed several motherboard vendors with P8t80 designs. Their total number is eight, viw 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.

It’s impossible to say anything without tests — at one time the appearance of AGP 8x interface brought absolutely nothing compared to AGP 4x. Otherwise, the PT held up well under scrutiny.
