Cheap, good expansion and lots of support for the enthusiast in terms of performance and overclocking features are nanual I expected and that’s exactly what I got.
Open the link provided; http: Here’s a link to this great service Good fpox Latency on the memory increases actually negating some of the new bandwidth performance you get. Like before, a small but appreciable difference in performance is what we are looking for. The floppy and IDE connectors are placed, ideally for this reviewer at least, on the right hand vertical edge of the board and aligned vertically.
Performance This is the section that most people will be interested in and rightly so.
Overclocking I wont dwell on overclocking for long except to prove the effect of overclocking the front side bus and letting the CPU have greater bandwidth. VIA have tweaked the ep-8ka 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.
Not a blue screen throughout testing, no instability unless at the very ragged edge and pushing it to the extreme. By pressing ‘print’ button you will print only current page.
We’ll need to make use of other benchmarks to highlight the performance advantage that occurs. No issues with installation at all, as it should be. Installation Easy Installation Procedure A new PCI implementation is what gets most press time when talking about this new southbridge. That leads us nicely onto a general observation about the platform.
System Memory Configuration As always, lets start at the top left and work our way across and down. Starting in the top left area we have the main ATX power connector and the 3-phase power regulation circuitry and components that feed the CPU socket with power and in turn the rest of the board.

Your answer needs to include more details to help people. The winds of change haven’t been blowing especially hard for Socket A as a platform since April an this board is equipped yet again with ep-k83a KT core logic. Onto the memory benchmark figures from Sandra. Think about it like that and you see why the figures manal so close together. It’s quite obvious that Athlon XP could do with a front side bus hike to let it use more memory bandwidth.
Page 85 Appendix Autoexec. Don’t show me this message again. Not by much, but measurable. The effect isn’t pronounced you need a combination of extra bandwidth and an overclocked host bus to take epoxx advantage of it but the increase does have an effect.
You also have a pair of USB2. Be sure to run a recent BIOS! Tell us some more!

The board enjoys the 3-phase power circuitry to provide stable overclocks. VT brings a few important upgrades to the table over the VT series of bridges used since KT Secondly and maybe more importantly, VIA’s provider of these services, the southbridge, has recieved an update in the form of the VT As manuaal stands, the board supports good peripheral expansion with 6 manyal PCI slots for all the add on cards you might add to your system. I’m guessing the P80P module is expensive and it doesn’t appear on the regular 8K3A for cost reasons.
The max point reward for answering a question is Posted by vincecall on Nov 04, The graph just shows the CPU is working properly. You have a massive range of voltage options available to you without modification 2.

The Northbridge is only passively cooled with no noisy fan which is a bonus.
As you can see, running the memory bus at MHz and giving us the extra bandwidth shows us a slight but measureable performance increase. Onto Aquamark, our shader-heavy DirectX 8. A move to MHz memory clock coupled with new DDR memory would give the platform an overall performance boost. Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. Would have been better to see it across both boards however.
