Motherboard Features Continued
- Intel's Canterwood - The face behind the passive cooler
As we have previously stated, this motherboard is powered by Intel's Canterwood chipset. Just recently we had a look at VIA's new PT800 chipset using only Single Channel DDR and discovered that while Dual Channel does give a performance jump its not huge. The Canterwood chipset also carries over the usual features including AGP 8X, support for 533/800MHz Pentium 4 processors as well as Hyper Threading and the whole shebang.
- Gigabit Networking
Since the release of Gigabit networking from the larger motherboard manufacturers, it has quickly become a trend with a lot of other motherboard manufacturers to start including it. Like a lot of other motherboards based on the I875, you will find that they choose to use Intel's new CSA (Communications System Architecture) technology. While Gigabit networking isn't a big thing at the moment you will find that people/companies upgrading their current networking setup will move to it as it will give greater performance. As it becomes larger and wider spread prices will drop and within years it will become quite common amongst most PC users.
- Onboard Audio
Onboard audio is powered by the C-Media CMI9739A AC 97 codec. While this isn't the best in onboard audio technology, it is quite good for the average person who uses cheap speakers or headphones. The chipset does have support for 5.1 surround sound but if you are fortunate enough to have a 5.1 setup, the chances are you have also chosen to purchase a separate PCI card that will produce greater clarity.
- IDE Raid
Something that we don't see much of on newer boards these days is the inclusion of Parallel ATA RAID. DFI has chosen to use the Highpoint HPT327 controller giving users the operation to use RAID 0, 1 or 0 + 1. With the four IDE connections and the two Serial ATA ports, a total of 10 devices can be attached to your computer. This is definitely going to be very helpful for people who have a large number of hard drives or multiple CD-ROMs.
We have to ask though, where is our Serial ATA RAID, DFI?
