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!
