Video 3Digests Video cards: BioShock Infinite and Metro: There are 2 connectors for adjustable and 1 for unadjustable connection of fans. Of course, you can wait for a newer revision or even an updated chipset, but you can also purchase Hyper-Threading-ready iGE and iPE boards depending on your needs. And now we have a partially inoperable product, that always lags a bit, has cloudy prospects and doesn’t have any unique interesting features.

For the sake of accuracy, note that chipset specs doesn’t feature DDR support, but this is caused by absence of a standard to mention compatibility with. In operation with the external video accelerator untegrated not the chipsets that differ but the boards, and the gap is too small after all.

SiS This chipset, despite its marking resembles older variants, is a significantly improved SiS model for Pentium 4. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: The board can be a good choice for a cheap office computer. Sergey Pikalov peek ixbt. Test results Let’s traditionally begin with low-level memory tests. Naturally, the latest requires its conditions, but at last our samples worked with DDR modules you should get the complete list of certified modules from manufacturer website before the purchase, though SiS has its own certification programcaused a noticeable performance boost, and that’s a very important indication of actual required clock support.
Other Southbridge integated include: The difference between the boards will be noticeable only in applications where the performance depends mostly on the memory. In Return To Castle Wolfenstein, based on Quake3 and thus more sensible to memory subsystem, graphics card performance is not the only limiting factor already at x and higher.
MPEG4 encoding is the first real-world problem, enabling the competitors to show themselves. Dmitry Mayorov destrax ixbt. All of them except VIA product continue their lines, and new features is either currently useless i. BioShock Infinite and Metro: Conclusions Actually we couldn’t take any interesting conclusions out of the closer look at mentioned chipsets.
Latest Intel Pentium 4 chipsets from all makers
VIA plans to take a rather usual step: However, this was unsuccessful, as our samples refused to work with DDR, and later the company itself integrzted there were problems. But the most important conclusion is that all manufacturers admit that the iGE is a budget, office solution and they made cheap products free from modern controller interfaces and other frills.
This review can be considered an update, i8445ge as iPE and iGE are not a subject for a separate review. In such conditions the performance difference is not important, and the price seems to be a determining factor.
u845ge Latest Intel Pentium 4 chipsets from all makers. This is a traditional product for this company with essential functions and settings.
The weak points are only audio-ins located in front of the PCI and memory modules locked with an inserted video card.
Intel i845GE Chipset Overview
So, we decided to remove unnecessary information and ii845ge the fastest Pentium 4 chipsets bundled with the fastest memory they support. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: We can recommend such boards only to fans of VIA or to those willing to save money but why purchase new Pentium 4 then? Write a comment below. Nevertheless, it’s still interesting to look at the performance increase.

The only usable innovations, currently supported by only SiS, is DDR PC memory, that is not and will not be standardized but actually exists and boosts the performance. The Second Encounter v1. And now we have a partially inoperable product, that always lags a bit, has cloudy prospects and doesn’t have any unique interesting features.
Finally, speaking of announced chipsets, we should state that iPE, like its iE predecessor, is a discrete chipset, and iGE – integrated, featuring the same graphics, as used in iG. You can see that computing tests are almost not affected by chipset performance, as only CPU clock and cache are important permanent in our testing.
BioShock Infinite and Metro: A good example is modern games with dynamic interactive scenes in 3D which require a high memory transfer rate but which show almost no difference between close processors and close chipsets when used with modern video accelerators even in the lowest not gaming resolutions.
