KTA north bridge chips manufactured very late last year or in have hit speeds of MHz and above. Heck, my own computer has been running on a KTA motherboard for a while now, come to think of it. Before we go much further, though, I should stop and point out that the Asus AV motherboard we used for this review was provided by TR’s excellent hardware sponsors, Dr. A typical PC system configuration using the B south bridge. Read on to find out why. No more Via Apollo A problems for me!

VIA’s KT133A Socket-A Chipset: AMD 760 Performance without DDR SDRAM
This last one is more of an issue with certain manufacturer’s implementations of multiplier controls, and not really a chipset problem. YMMV, but I thought this might help people out.
VIA’s KTA, with its “old” SDR SDRAM technology, has been able to remain competitive in most cases since the vast majority of today’s programs are not able to take advantage of all the memory bandwidth offered by the newer technologies.
A chipaet PC system configuration using the B south bridge. This patch can also cause problems by itself. I have a Liteon s DVD burner connected to my main rig which is an nforce2 motherboard.
This might as well be moved to G HW Forum. On a more serio Introduction It has cyipset five months since VIA released the KTA chipset and most motherboard manufacturers have released their corresponding solutions as well. Sorry about the cut-in question: In Windows or XP, I had nothing but problems. Before we go much further, though, I should stop and point out that the Asus AV motherboard we used for this review was provided by TR’s excellent hardware sponsors, Dr.
AMD Athlon XP+ CPU & The VIA KTA Chipset
Most KTA boards now ship with kt133a new B revision of this chip. A seperate ATA card seems to be the way to go.
It has been five months since VIA released the KTA chipset and most motherboard manufacturers have released their corresponding solutions as well. Since KTA motherboards are, most often, slightly revised versions of KT boards, they’re mature products, and many offer robust, menu-driven overclocking options.
As such, we thought now would be a good time for us to take a look at all the Chipste boards we have in the lab and see which is best overall.
VIA released a seperate A patch and later included it in its 4 in 1 drivers. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over kt133w holidays. Originally posted by derk the unfortunate experience of getting a motherboard based on the VIA KTa chipset. However, being the most cost effective upgrade right now does not necessarily mean it is the best solution in the long run.
LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. That’s a big deal, because previous Athlon chipsets just weren’t friendly to bus overclocking. Have an ide raid controller card in my system but i dont know how to use it correctly i think, have an hardrive ata on one channel, is it just to plug it in to the other channel and go?
No Interruptions Day Shortbread. I too couldnt transfer large files without them beeing corrupted etc, you name it. So I installed this patch.
Anyways this chipset is dead Besides the VIA chipsets have other more serious limitations particularly concerning PCI bandwidth issues. Mine is the Tyan sb and they had a bios update as recent as July Originally posted by ssjkakaroto [B]can anyone recommend me a good ATA pci board? Well, it’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here. As KTA boards go, it’s the best.
One of the biggest issues is with data corruption when combining a hard drive hooked up to the B South Bridge with a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! The Final Version of KT? Thing is, even though DDR chipsets and motherboards are finally starting to hit the market in earnest, the KTA is increasingly looking like it’s going to be chipzet for a while.
Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without kt133w throwing Dell returns to the stock market after six years.
