Gigabyte does SiS - 655TX hits the shelves for Pentium 4

We have another Gigabyte motherboard on the test bench today in the form of the 8S655TX Ultra. It is based on the new SiS 655TX chipset for the Pentium 4 including Prescott. We compare against Intel 875P and VIA PT880.

Introduction

 

It has been said many times by us that Gigabyte is one of the most diverse companies, and we will say it again today - no other company we have seen has as much diversity or willingness to try something different than Gigabyte.

 

We have seen Gigabyte take on just about every new AMD and Pentium 4 chipset, just to see what it can do. We have seen Gigabyte now take on both ATI and nVidia for its VGA business side, rather than just limit itself to one or the other and with the full on Networking and Server support Gigabyte has branched into, it seems things couldn't look better for this rather under-rated Taiwanese company.

 

The 655TX is the latest creation to come from SiS, a rather small member of the chipset community now Intel has its own breed of DDR chipsets. Once the savoir of the Pentium 4 with the 645 series of chipsets, SiS has faded into the background somewhat these days. The 655TX is aimed to change all of that.

 

Today we will see the Gigabyte adoption of this chipset and just how well it can perform against the highest powered chipsets available today, the Intel 875P and VIA PT880.
