VIA’s KTA Socket-A Chipset: AMD Performance without DDR SDRAM
I have a via chipset and when I followed the link in the first post I discovered a file by the name of:. Mine is the Tyan sb and they had a bios update as recent as July I have a via chipset and when I followed the link in the first post I discovered a file by the name of: Originally posted by dmmh good for you, doesnt mean the bug was non-existend tho.
VIA’s KTA, with its “old” SDR SDRAM technology, has been able to remain competitive in most cases since the vast majority of today’s programs are not able to take advantage of all the memory bandwidth offered by the newer technologies. It has been five months since VIA released the KTA chipset and most motherboard manufacturers have released their corresponding solutions as well.
As KTA boards go, it’s the best. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. One of the biggest issues is with data corruption when combining a hard drive hooked up to the B South Bridge with a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! That would let me see if the IDE performance is indeed increased. Before we tk133a much further, though, I should stop and point out that the Asus AV motherboard we used for this review was provided by TR’s excellent hardware sponsors, Dr. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing I downloaded it and discovered that my memory was not being interleaved.
Since KTA motherboards are, most often, slightly revised versions of KT boards, they’re mature products, and many offer robust, menu-driven overclocking options. A lot of users have discovered problems taking advantage of multiplier ratio settings on some KTA motherboards when trying to overclock to a MHz FSB. Any Promise card will do. A typical PC system configuration using the B south bridge.
That’s a big deal, because previous Athlon chipsets just weren’t friendly to bus overclocking. Despite being chipset issues at heart, they created a lot of discussion about which KTA is “bug free” and which one performs the best. That process uses Cinema Craft Encoder.
VIA KTA Motherboard Roundup – June
As CPU’s become more and more powerful, memory bandwidth is getting to be more and more of a bottleneck. It WAS existant since I had the exact repro steps! Customize The Tech Report But thanks for the link anyway! If you bothered looking around you would have known that VIA solved the A corruption based bug ages ago.
At the same time, problems with connecting certain USB devices also seems to create some problems. So I darn well ought to have published this review already, instead of running around in DDR land.
In theory, the KTA will be at a comparative disadvantage in certain scenarios where the system has to move large amounts of data from several sources and cchipset at the same time. Beyond that, the KTA still includes all the features that have made the KT the most popular Athlon chipset around.
TR reviews the Via KT133A chipset
Thing is, even though DDR chipsets and motherboards are finally kt13a to hit the market in earnest, the KTA is increasingly looking like it’s going to be around for a while.
As such, we thought now would be a good time for us to take a look at all the KTA boards we have in the lab and see which is best overall. In Windows or XP, I had nothing but problems.
