Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
the VIA K8T800 chipset - the VIA K8T800 chipset
Mon, November 03 2003 | 4:28PM | PermaLink Feedback?
The Athlon64 has finally hit the stores, so have a few mainboards based on either the VIA K8T800 chipset or else on the nVidia nForce2 core logic. After looking at the Athlon64 FX-51 with its dual memory controllers and a price point that almost matches its 940 pins, we are taking a long look at the home edition of AMD's 64-bit processor, conveniently dubbed Athlon64 and a price point at slightly over ½ of its 754 pins. Needless to say that a single channel memory controller does not reach the luxurious bandwidth of its dual channel counterpart, however, it may have some more agility, courtesy of supporting low latency unbuffered memory. And then, there was the VIA K8T800 chipset, an interesting combination of a high performance AGP Tunnel and a South Bridge that is somewhat, er, difficult to categorize. Add a WiFi slot and the corresponding card, some decent AnalogDevices sound without the high-end Sensaura software and the result is the ASUS K8V Deluxe. Does it have what it takes to play in the upper division? You are about to find out.
