VIA Arming the PCIe/AGP PT880 Pro Chipset For P4 Upgrade Business

Asus P5GD2 With Intel 915P, Continued

Our intention in this review is primarily to compare VIA’s new combo solution with Intel’s PCI Express DDR2 platform. As a matter of course, we ran both systems at best memory timings possible. In case of the P5GD2, we operated the Corsair DIMMs at CL3-2-2-4 and 266 MHz (DDR2-533), which is the fastest setting that both BIOS versions and memory chips support today.
