VIA KT333 Put To The Test: 18 Motherboards Compared

VIA KT333: Architecture

Comparison: 18 Boards With The VIA KT333 Chipset

In this latest test scenario, there are numerous new features pertaining to the process as well as the individual criteria. As opposed to previous tests using 256 MB RAM, we used 512 MB for this round. In the following section, we'll take a detailed look at the newest test criteria, which will also play a central role in future comparisons.

A Considerable Memory Upgrade: 1536 MB Required!

Test setup: each motherboard is tested fully equipped - with all three DIMMs. The RAM: 1536 MB.

The latest motherboards are equipped with at least two DIMM slots. In addition, the maximum limit of the chipset is at least 2 GB. Because of this, we introduced a test in which each motherboard is equipped to the hilt. Here, we used double-sided modules with 512 MB each (DDR333, CL2, 166 MHz, maximum timing), so that the motherboards were fitted with 1536 MB. This procedure wasn't successful with all of the boards.
