What was the best tech product of ? Of course you are also free to run your clocks synchronously and indeed this can possibly be advantageous since running asynchrously increases memory latency on a DDR memory subsystem. What Sandra is really measuring here is the bandwidth the host processor can make use of from what’s available from the memory controller. Click to find out more. So anyone with this board? Was it easy to set up?

I’m not a fan 8kk3a rotated sockets since I used to run water cooling and rotating the socket when moving motherboard meant rotating and repositioning the water block. Onto the performance conclusion where we’ll also touch on some issues pertaining to the Athlon XP platform in general.
A small but measurable increase in performance from the free memory bandwidth that we gain.
But overall, I was satisfied with it. As you change the options, the stock status will automatically 8k3aa depending on your selection. Moving down past the passively cooled chip and we encounter very familiar territory. Ask a question Compare. At MHz and above, your memory clock will match the front side bus speed.
Given a fast graphics card, you are able to see the effect that memory bandwidth has on the system when you use Quake3.
The CPU can use 2. Lets take a look at the board spec. There would be no point in VIA releasing a chipset that’s intended to replace the KTA if it didn’t offer increased performance in some areas leaving people with no incentive to buy a KT board. Most focus on the chipset will be in the asynchronous memory mode where you run the board in Items that are bought by us when a purchase is made, this generally is for highly expensive items, items with a very slow run rate or speciality items.
It’s quite obvious that Athlon XP could do with a front side bus hike to let it use more memory bandwidth. Latency on DDR memory subsystems actually increases when you run asynchronous to the front side bus, negating some of the performance, epix on the whole performance rises.
So we’ll take a look at performance from a number of angles. Just upgraded my machine with an 8K3A. Again, predictably, we get what we expected. If an ETA epxo available it will be displayed on hover.
Review: EPoX 8K3A – Mainboard –
The graph just shows the CPU is working properly. Also, our asynchrous runs show the little increase we need to validate the mode. Decent price, kept me updated with progress, well packed and they chucked in some sweeties! Logik Ars Praefectus Tribus: Newsletter Sign Up Register now for the latest products and special offers!

Stock level indicator Close. Coupled with suitable memory such as!! Saluki Ars Centurion Registered: As you can see, running the memory bus at MHz and giving us the extra bandwidth shows us a slight but measureable performance increase.
I was a bit hasty in releasing a review of the board where I could see no discernable difference in the two modes since other reviews had shown a difference and a chat with EPoX UK assured me the board did run asynchronous. Was epxo easy to set up?
