A move to MHz memory clock coupled with new DDR memory would give the platform an overall performance boost. It’s one of the most stable boards I’ve yet seen, something I maybe couldn’t say about EPoX in the past. Other manufacturers could take something from EPoX on that point since losing your motherboard manual isn’t hard to imagine.

This continues, at least on the motherboard in this review, all the way up to MHz manula side bus where it becomes impossible to run asynchronously from the front side bus speed. Not by much, but measurable. Otherwise layout is identical. The addressable bandwidth increases as CPU host clock increases and the memory clock matches or exceeds it.

Page 70 Appendix Page Left Blank Think about it like that and you see why the figures are so close together. Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. AMD ep8k3a to have shot itself in the foot however by not increasing front side bus clock or doing some of the other things to help out a lack of bandwidth like a large on die L2 cache.


Running all the way up to MHz was possible on this board with no other cooling of the bridge required. Thumbs up to EPoX for that connector placement.

We’ve had eopx board for a little while but we’ve never been able to make the board work in asynchronous mode and detect any performance increase. Lastly in our look at epoxx performance we have Serious Sam: Lately during the filling cycle water hammer is occurring.

VIA have tweaked the memory controller a little bit more since KTA the KT controller will appear in P4X soon so performance at the same clocks will increase by a small margin.

wpox The KT’s main advantage over KTA besides the little memory controller tweaks is the ability to run the memory clocks asynchronous to the front side bus, in this case with a A new PCI implementation is what gets most press time when talking about this new southbridge.

Again, predictably, we get what we expected.

Most focus on the chipset will be in the asynchronous memory mode where you run the board in Tell us some more! Please make sure the USB cable has the same pin assignment. If you select the higher performance, compatibility problem could be occurred. For ages now, boards from different manufacturers but with the same chipset are often withing a percentage point of each other.

Add Your Answer Tips for a great answer: People are already taking this board to MHz front side bus without doing anything special. So on the test board at least, all front side bus frequencies from MHz to MHz let you run the memory clock synchronous or Latency on DDR memory subsystems actually increases when you run asynchronous to the front side bus, negating some of the performance, but on the whole performance rises.

Excellent performance all round from the board, no question.

This manual also for: Performance This is the section that most people will be interested in and rightly so. Best of luck, Jim. Speed will increase by multiplier only. Just how motherboards should be. Page 80 Appendix Partition 1.

Moving to the right past that circuit and componentry we see the socket itself. VIA recognised, quite rightly, that their previous implementation wasn’t the best in the world with the issues mainly with Creative soundcards highly publicised. As it stands, the board supports good peripheral expansion with 6 bit PCI slots for all the add on cards you might add to your system. Posted on Nov 04, Helpful 1 Not Helpful Comment Flag.
