A look at the Albatron BIOS

In the Advanced Chipset Features we find the usual memory timing adjustments like CAS Latency, RAS to CAS Delay and RAS Precharge.

Things are more fun in the Frequency/Voltage Control section, both PCI and PCI Express speeds are adjustable but those are best left alone. Memory frequency can be adjusted to run at 333 or 400 MHz and FSB can be tuned between 200-400 MHz in 1 MHz increments. Memory, Northbridge and CPU voltage can be adjusted to a maximum of 0.15V above stock values.

* the latest albatron drivers for the px915sli do not yet support geforce 7800gtx class videocards, so we used two geforce 6600gt's to illustrate SLI performance.
