Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
SiS's 648 chipset - SiS's 648 chipset
Mon, July 22 2002 | 2:55AM | PermaLink Feedback?
The 648 chipset has nearly every one of the latest features you might want in a new chipset. The 648 north bridge chip has a revamped AGP interface with AGP 8X support and—surprise!—twice the bandwidth of AGP 4X solutions. The front-side bus supports the latest Pentium 4 chips with 533MHz bus speeds. And the reworked memory controller is faster than in the 645/645DX chipsets, with the ability to host three DIMMs of DDR266 memory or two DIMMs of DDR333. Unofficially, the 648 will support DDR400, as well—the necessary bus-to-memory clock ratio is there, and it worked flawlessly in our tests with a single stick of Corsair DDR400 memory. (When the time comes, I expect SiS to release a "648DX" chip that's unchanged in silicon but has official support for DDR400.)
