Combine that with the very wide Ultra V-Link connection to the northbridge and we might see some real performance from our SATA drives that are now just starting to show up in North America.

Via Introduces KTA Chipset – ExtremeTech

Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! No Interruptions Day Shortbread. This is what the VIA white paper states: Keep in mind that the biggest thing that is included in this new chipset is not laid out in our block diagram, and that is VIA FastStream technology.

While many of us expected a dual channel memory controller on the KTA, VIA has elected to stick with the single channel bit configuration, hence the trademark name “FastStream64” noted above. A reworked memory controller has given the nForce line a new lease on life. If you are entertaining the idea of getting a KTA mainboard, I would highly suggest you make sure that the board you buy has the VT chip on it as you are very likely to be kicking yourself later if you do not.

The rest of the north bridge, including the front-side bus, the AGP port, and the link to the south bridge, is largely unchanged. What may be surprising is this. Now here is where things get sticky, and it is certainly not VIA’s souns.

Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. The key difference between the KTA and nForce2 Ultra chipsets, at least as far as performance goes, is single versus dual-channel memory. Audio enthusiasts looking for high quality sound will definitely want to upgrade to a discrete bit audio card, but the majority of gamers and casual listeners will probably be quite happy with what they hear from both boards. The nForce2 chipset’s parade kg400a advantages continues with the MCP-T’s stunning list of south bridge features.

Customize The Tech Report Before you go writing off the KTA as a non-event, though, listen up: But VIA knows something about second efforts, too. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.

It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Both boards support analog 6-channel kt400 and digital input and output ports, but they do so with different audio chip and codec configurations. When it comes to sound solutions, the guys at TechReport have been doing the best job when it comes to subjective reporting on sound technologies so I would suggest looking to them when this technology hits the market.


The extra bandwidth will be useful, because the will support as many as eight USB 2. Memory isn’t the only area where soundd nForce2 chipset has a bandwidth advantage over the KTA. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing As noted, this is not VIA’s problem and quite honestly, it does not seem to make much difference anyway, as we are going to show you.

VIA’s KT400A chipset

VIA’s VT south bridge. Its second-revision chipsets, like KTA and KTA, have traditionally been notable improvements over the first revs. About us Privacy policy Mailing list Sounc.

MondayMarch 10, Serial ATA in its native state: The VT will be shipping in a couple of weeks. I am not an audiophile and never have been. The MCP-T we all know and love.

Also we are not in a position to judge this technology as dound have never heard the solution so for the time being we will have to take VIA’s word when it comes to the VT’s sound quality.

This will afford you the luxury of attaching two SATA drives directly to your mainboard. Dell returns to the stock market after six years.
