It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. This added cost for the necessary buffers is decidedly less expensive than that of integrating a second memory channel. Having a single channel memory controller also lowers the actual cost of development and production on the chipset as well as lowering the cost to the consumer; you only have to purchase a single DIMM to get the best performance out of the KTA chipset as opposed to needing two DIMMs for optimal nForce2 performance.
The technical aspect behind the new FastStream64 Technology is an increased number of prefetch buffers in the KTA north bridge. The synchronous memory settings running the processor and memory at MHz FSB have very low latencies and there are no synchronization issues that the chipset has to handle.
As you would expect, we’re about to put those claims to the test with a battery of benchmarks punctuated by occasional smart-aleck comments. However, on this front, nothing has changed from the KT or nForce2 chipsets as far as the benefits of DDR go — they are chipseet nearing nothing in most cases. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.

But VIA knows something about second efforts, too. Before you chippset writing off the KTA as a non-event, though, listen up: The nForce2 arrived a few months ago, and it’s fast.

But before we do so, we should check out a couple of other changes coming down the pike from Chipsset which will affect the KTA’s fortunes. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff!
When we switch to using the DDR settings and asynchronous busses, we introduce latencies and other issues that slow the system down enough to counter any kt400q of having the additional bandwidth might have given us, in nearly all cases. Once the south bridge is available, here is the diagram for what a typical KTA chipset motherboard may look like: Its second-revision chipsets, like KTA and KTA, have traditionally been notable improvements over the first revs.

Read on for the answers. VIA’s marketing department celebrated this revamped memory controller by christening it with a new marketing name: When the VT becomes widely available, it will surely be the south bridge of choice for any and all VIA motherboards as the feature set on it is very competitive with the nForce2 MCP-T. Can Chipste really match up with the nForce2? Serial ATA in its native state: Latest News Latest Videos.

Logitech’s intelligent solution to their smart home restores Harmony. The new memory controller is labeled as the FastStream64 Technology. The KTA chipset is still a single channel DDR chipset, despite the initial rumors that were circulating months ago.
