The KTA can supposedly perform just as well without the extra expense and trouble of a second memory channel. That importance is that it has a new memory controller.
This is what the VIA white paper states: Steam names the best-selling games of Before you go writing off the KTA as a non-event, though, listen up: Keep in mind that the biggest thing that is included in this new chipset is not laid out in our block diagram, and that is VIA FastStream technology.
Can VIA really match up with the nForce2? The extra bandwidth will be useful, because the will support as many as eight USB 2. Dell returns to the stock market after six years. Chipsets Previous page Next page. The VT will be shipping in a couple of weeks.
While many of us expected a dual channel memory controller on the KTA, VIA has elected to kt400a-2837 with the single channel bit configuration, hence the trademark name “FastStream64” noted above.
Many of you are aware of sticks of Ram out there that are rated at “PC” or better. Despite offering two channels of DDR memory and a host of compelling features, nForce’s performance sounv anything to write home about, and motherboard buyers looked elsewhere.
VIA KT400A-8237 Drivers
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. But VIA knows k400a-8237 about second efforts, too. Combine that with the very wide Ultra V-Link connection to the northbridge and we might see some real performance from our SATA drives that are now just starting to show up in North America.
As noted, this is not VIA’s problem and quite honestly, it does not seem to make much difference anyway, as we are going to show you.

This will afford you the luxury of attaching kt400a-82377 SATA drives directly to your mainboard. The rest of the k4t00a-8237 bridge, including the front-side bus, the AGP port, and the link to the south bridge, is largely unchanged. In fact VIA goes as far as to say something that we have been telling you guys for a while now and that is that memory bandwidth that exceeds the Athlon’s capability to “absorb” is really just wasted for the most part.
Also we are not in a position to judge this technology as we have never heard the solution so for the time being we will have to take VIA’s word when it comes to the VT’s sound quality. VIA’s marketing department celebrated this revamped memory controller by christening it with a new marketing name: Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the kt4000a-8237 details without first throwing The KTA’s FastStream64 memory controller includes “an expanded array of prefetch buffers to reduce latency in the memory controller,” according to VIA’s tech brief.
Like the KTA, the will be pin-compatible with its predecessor, so you can expect to see current KT motherboards arriving in new incarnations, first the with KTA north bridge, and then with the south bridge. Created by the same lead engineer who designed the KTA, this new chipset is intended as an nForce2 killer.
A reworked memory controller has given the nForce line a new lease on life. All trademarks used are properties of their respective owners. Where does it get you compared to DDR?

It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. What may be surprising is this. Let’s face it, those are the things we are really here to find out, but first the official package.
Here are the supported specs shown from the white paper as well: Customize The Tech Report There will be two different southbridge chips available with the KTA, the VT which is the southbridge currently in use with the KT, and the southbridge noted above in our diagram the newer VT Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.
