533FSB Pentium 4 Chipset Shootout - Intel -vs- SiS -vs- VIA

When the Pentium 4 processors with 533MHz FSB support first hit the market, there was some complaining about the standard being to quick to market. Since then, the market has accepted this new processor family and it has garnered some solid support from the chipset manufacturers. Come join Cameron "Sov" Johnson as he hosts a shootout that pits Intel against SiS against VIA. There are no holds barred, so come see who can claim to be King of the Hill!

Intel's introduction of the 533FSB Intel Pentium 4 processor was once again received with a mixed reception, some welcomed the new powerhouse of 4.2GB/s bandwidth while some criticized that we had just gotten used to 400MHz FSB and getting chipsets, memory and boards supporting it in full swing and why Intel was changing so quick. Another sour note was that on release, the only official 533FSB chipset was the i850E, RDRAM chipset that supports new PC1066 RDRAM, but no PC1066 RDRAM even on the market, or even a PC1066 standard developed.

 

Now that we have seen chipsets that make sense from Intel, we have seen VIA and SiS come out with their own chipsets for this new front side bus. Today we are going to throw them into the shark tank and see which emerges the strongest. Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, we give you, Intel i845G -vs- Intel i845E and G -vs- VIA P4X400 -vs- SiS 645DX -vs- SiS 648. Who will be the victor? Let's go through it all and see.
