This memory volume will also be available to DDR3 in good time. Besides, chipsets have no real need to update their peripheral support at present: In fact, this is the only difference between P43 and P Our maximum overclocking result is the best result we managed in imtel limited time of testing the motherboard.

They could have added support for the second version of PCI Express not only for graphics ports, but also for peripheral ports in the Southbridge. Both boards have identical settings.

But it’s not the chipset to praise — it’s a natural result of certifying new memory modules and chips. Here are the key features of the new Southbridges:. Previous Page Next Page. You can find products similar to this one for sale below. In fact, there are not many touches left to add: However, the transition took longer than they thought: Consumed Power, Jntel Consumption: But most potential users do not care about it.


iXBT Labs – Intel P43 and P45 Chipsets (Eaglelake)

Both modifications of the Southbridge support Viiv technologies. Intel has designed ICH10 Southbridges for the new generation of chipsets.

You may or may not be able to overclock higher if you spend more time tweaking, or as new Chipseg updates are released. But as far as P45 and P43 products are concerned, manufacturers have to lure customers by other means that do not involve chipset features.

We do however spend at least a few hours overclocking every motherboard to try and find the highest possible overclock in that time frame. It does not make such motherboards bad, of course. Find other tech and computer products like this over at Amazon UK’s website.

PATA support has not returned, by the way. DDR3 memory is still too expensive, its high bandwidth is not relevant with the existing FSB organization, so motherboard manufacturers actively design new models with DDR2 support, and even manage to use Intel X48 for such products for example, MSIwhich does not work with DDR2 officially.

Adding more features to the built-in Gigabit Ethernet MAC controller makes even less sense, as usual desktops don’t use it at all, it’s used only in corporate systems vPro. As we have already mentioned, ICH10 can boast of almost no new features — in fact, common users may be only interested in more SATA ports in the basic modification of the Southbridge.


Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. However, there is still only one [expensive] desktop processor with this FSB frequency. Support for a MHz FSB is still not implemented although motherboard manufacturers boasted of its support in products based on Intel 3xthis feature is reserved exclusively for Intel X But in this case improvements are not that important.

However, we haven’t seen such memory modules designed for desktop motherboards for the past year. We managed a total of MHz out of the P43 and just a little higher of MHz out of the P45 board; very impressive results here.

Almost the only useful feature added to this chipset is PCI Express chhipset. As a result, motherboards on the new chipsets usually come with regular heatsinks. And, finally, we are not even going to touch upon performance issues of new chipsets. Subscribe to our Newsletter.
