ATI IGP 320M Mobile Athlon Chipset Review

AMDZone takes its first look at the new ATI IGP 320M mobile Athlon chipset with integrated video. It comes in the form of the new Compaq Presario 900 series laptop, and is the mobile equal to the FIC AT31 Fusion IGP 320 powered motherboard.

It has taken a while, but finally AMD fans can have a laptop with quality 3D and 2D graphics with the ATI IGP 320M and the Compaq Presario 900 series. Testing has shown that the new ATI mobile video solution far out distances the next best competitor, the VIA S3 Twister KN133. In addition it also holds up well against the desktop SiS 740 based ECS desknote. ATI has provided best in class 3D performance while also adding great DVD playback support, and continuing their tradition of excellent 2D graphics.

VIA P4X400 and SiS648 Chipset Review

X-bit labs has a look at the VIA P4X400 and SiS648 P4 chipsets.

The situation in the chipset market is changing fast nowadays. New chipsets used to become available to mainboard makers a few times a year, but now I have to review them monthly. And not just one but several products are often to be reviewed. So what's happening to the market? Why are the manufacturers trying to smother the market in their new wares?

AMD 762 Chipset Tweaking (MP/MPX) Guide

Neoseeker has a guide up on how to tweak your AMD 762 Chipset (MP/MPX), for those lucky enough to have one.

In this article we are going to look at improving the performance of the AMD's 760MP/MPX chipset which is designed for multi processor use. We have been digging into the white papers on this chipset over the past week to try and find out every last thing we could about this chipset and then figure out how all of you power hungry madmen with the duallies can make it run even faster! If you've been around this site for very long you know all about chipset registers by now.

Cooler Master HSC-V62 Auto Speed CPU Cooler

Over at Techware Labs they have posted a review of the Cooler Master HSC-V62 Auto Speed CPU Cooler.

With constant increases in processor clock speeds, and the growing trend of high processor overclocking, heat can become a serious issue, while the sound produced by some products can be overwhelming. Cooler Master has not only combined a masterfully crafted copper heatsink with a smart fan technology to maximize cooling, while minimizing the resulting sound.

SiS 648 chipset preview @ VIA Hardware

By: Array

Our friends over at VIA Hardware have got a preview up of the new SiS 648 chipset for the Intel Pentium 4 which brings full AGP 8x, 533FSB, onboard ethernet, USB 2.0, Firewire and more.

 

With the launch of the 648 chipset, SiS hopes to build on the momentum they've established in the past year as a quality "alternative" chipset provider and become the primary option for any high-performance buyer looking for a top-shelf product. That's an ambitious goal for any company, but particularly so for a designer that hopes to challenge the established product bases of both VIA and Intel. On the other hand, SiS has already demonstrated an ability to offer a much-improved product line while keeping overall consumer costs low-a definite plus in a depressed, cost-conscious, market. Will the SiS 648 be the chipset to own for the Pentium 4 as it moves towards 3 GHz?

SiS's New 648 Chipset For The Pentium 4

The Tech Report has SiS's latest 648 chipset up for evaluation today.

TODAY SIS IS OFFICIALLY letting loose its new 648 chipset for the Pentium 4, and we're welcoming it by testing the 648 against six of its closest competitors in a total of 11 different configurations.
Yes, our skin is pasty white, and sunlight hurts our eyes.
But you get to benefit! We'll show you just how this new chipset contender, which packs a wallop with AGP 8X and unofficial DDR400 support, stacks up.

533MHz FSB Pentium 4 Chipsets Compared

A lot of people out there are wondering which chipset to use with a 533MHz FSB Pentium 4 as well as which memory. Well X-bit labs maybe able to help you make a decision then.

X-bit labs has posted a Roundupcalled "Pentium 4 Chipsets Supporting 533MHz Bus".
We have already reviewed in detail the available Intel chipsets that allow building 533MHz Quad Pumped Bus systems. However, other chipset makers offered their own solutions for Pentium 4 with high-speed bus. In this article we will discuss the current chipset market situation and learn more about non-Intel products.

Intel's 845G chipset arrives

By: Array

The NDA for the i845G chipset has just recently expired and some sites (including ours), although not as many as usual, have posted some various reviews and looks at the new 533Mhz FSB Pentium 4 chipset with onboard graphics, USB 2.0 and so forth. Below are a list of reviews which I'll keep updated as they emerge:

 

- We checked out the DFI NB76
- Tech Report look at the Abit BG7
- Tweak3D check out the i845G and ICH4 through an Intel reference board

 

We'll have our actual i845G chipset review posted shortly!
