Hyperion 4-in-1 Drivers Dec 11, In contrast to such boards which are apparently developed for the workstation market, the iPE offers only really needed contributing to efficiency or universality and cheap technologies: VIA Arena seems to not like me Nevertheless, we provide you with scores of all the participants in the games so that you can estimate them yourself in this aspect which is so important for a considerable number of users. Its quite usual for graphs with values which are quite close to each other to be scaled to show the difference in this way. The trouble with the P4 market is that there are already two established players vying for your money.

The DDR is of no use, I can say that it’s even a bit harmful. Join the community hereit only takes a minute.

The brief comparison characteristics of all the tested boards are given in the table below: VIA seemingly want to gain a larger foothold in the Pentium 4 motherboard market. The MPEG4 encoding is a good test because the results are not just practically important but also depend on the whole processor-memory path. Although the VIA’s boards on the new stepping of the chipset are at last able to work with DDR, this sole fact is not enough to change the market’s preferences.

The P4X is the beating heart of today’s review motherboard. Highly integrated, they offer manufacturers a chipsset to release a feature-packed motherboard at minimal prices. Intel Pentium 4 2.


Dmitry Mayorov destrax ixbt. Ask a question and give support. When was the last time you upgraded your PC? I forgot about getting the latest 4in1’s. Chipest Arena seems to not like me Sure, there are more efficient solutions from Intel iE, E and they even justify the high cost of the systems based on them, but their price is too high to consider them mass solutions.

Various Intel-based DDR chipsft, previously reviewed here at Hexus, have shown excellence in stability and performance.

VIA P4X400 and SiS648 Chipset Review

Man, that’s one hell of a performance increase for just 4in1 drivers. In the face of such strong competition, VIA have taken it upon themselves to market their own P4 chipset.

With P4s now selling at what many may consider sane prices, and overclocking far beyond their stated speeds, the demand for the CPUs and accompanying motherboards has never been higher. Two tests of operation with memory are enough to grade chipst boards because no more parameters of the system performance depend on a board itself.


As long as you read the numbers you know the real picture Note that I did say “little” boost. Will you please tell us if you find such arrangement inconvenient. Gigabyte 8PE Ultra 2. Taking into account the DDR, which is useless for P4Xand the fact that the other key parameters of the chipsets are equal, I still can’t find any reasons to recommend the mainboards on the VIA’s chipset.

In principle, the greater memory access latency in the PC mode explains that fact but the SiS based boards with the same memory modules did have a performance gain thanks to DDR I have always liked the 4-in-1 driver set of Via as you didn’t have to go hunt down different parts of drivers for different ages of chipsets.
