It has been a long time coming but we are finally reaching the beginning stages of 64-bit mainstream computing. AMD has been the first to bring a 64-bit processor to the market with any true support in the Opteron. VIA is one of the key chipset companies supporting AMD64 and today Shawn "Toxic" Baker takes a preview look at their new K8T800 chipset with AMD Opteron 242 and 244 processors. 64-bit computing is boarding - don't miss the train!

It wouldn't be the same without having a look at the Dual Opteron in action on the brand new MSI K8T800 motherboard.

 

As you will notice, the heatsink fans used are CoolerMaster all copper heatsinks with fans that adjust depending on processor temperature. The setup runs at a very cool 35c and at this temperature the fans are very quite, not once during our testing did the fans speed up to a level of noise which we found annoying.
