Over at the OC Workbench they have 2 reviews up both on motherboards based on Intel's new i845D DDR chipset the first being the DFI NB70-SC and the other being the ABIT BD7 RAID. So go and see how these 2 boards shape up.
A bit of P4 motherboard action is happening today and first off the rank is t-break with their impression of the MSI 845 Ultra based on the new Intel i845D DDR chipset.
So for you P4 lovers out there go and check out what this board has to offer you.
The Tech Report jumps out of the gates with it's review of the Athlon MP 1900+ CPU and runs it through some benchmarks paired up against a couple of Athlon MP 1800+'s, Athlon MP 1.2GHz's and a pair of Duron 1GHz's so if you want to know what happens go and read it.
The AMD Zone has the just released Athlon MP 1900+ CPU for review while also giving a brief preview of the new 760MPX chipset features also from AMD.
Plus if you're into overclocking and don't mind paying a few extra dollars these CPU come delivered unlocked and the review will tell you what was found on that score too.
The Register has information that Intel is pushing it's i845D DDR chipset over it's i845 SDRAM predecessor at manufacturers in the hope of gaining more market share and also to cut the impact of VIA's controversial P4X266 chipset.
So maybe we can expect to see a bit more happening on the Intel side of things.
we've been hearing about it, and now we can see if it manages to live up to the hype. Overclocked Cafe has gotten their hands on a motherboard using the SiS645 Chipset and want to share the knowledge with us. here's a snip:
"There has been a lot of press surrounding VIA's P4 DDR chipset and the surrounding lawsuits. While all of this has been going on, other companies have been working on their own DDR solutions for the P4. One such company is SiS. We recently had the pleasure of meeting with SiS, and were provided with a reference board based around their new SiS645 Open Architecture DDR333 chipset and it's accompanying SiS961 MuTIOL® Media I/O controller."
When the word fisrt got around that VIA had upped the ante on their KT266 chipset, there was a lot of talk. Now the folks at The DDR Zone want to let you know some hard numbers. So head on over and check out their review of the VIA KT266A Chipset. here's a snip:
"The release of the KT266a repositions VIA as the performance leader when it comes to socket A motherboard chipsets. A new North Bridge chipset doesn't sound like much of a change from the KT266, but if performance is what you want, it's enough of a change to make the difference you're looking for."
