On the secondary video card, the game performance turned out to be much, much slower than on the primary. However, during testing only the primary display card offered full 3D graphics acceleration with the secondary display card operating at near or non-accelerated speeds the majority of time. Intel Z Motherboard Round-Up: Subscribe to HH News Alerts! As all the tests are carried out with the same processor, we are not interested in stress tests the results are guaranteed to be the same. And a tad higher writing speed in iG is compensated by a slower reading speed.

Home PCs predict hotter earth. On the other hand, the cards that are available on the market these days are different. Acer Swift 3 Laptop Review: Reproduction in whole or in part, in any form or medium, without express written permission of HotHardware.

Reviews News Blogs Shop. However, notice that the PT north bridge offers one x16 link and a pair of x1 lanes for peripheral connectivity.

Their total number is eight, so we are guaranteed to find at least one test where we’ll see the difference due to memory throughputs or graphics interfaces of the systems under review.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Review: This means that when running two different games on a single machine, as I was in my top image, the primary card is actually responsible for both rendered images, meaning that we will obviously see a slow-down on both games.


Chipsets Previous page Next page. Acer Predator Helios Review: Previously, each SATA port allowed a connection to one hard drive only.

PT Pro Chipset Details. All is not completely lost however, ppt880 I was able to get the board running well enough to play around with chpset DualGFX feature though at a much slower than optimal configuration. Hey guys, go vote! We’ll carry out chhipset complete complex of tests for this chipset and its competitors as soon as possible.

Dell Latitude 2-In-1 Review: HD Audio allows for samples rates up to KHz at up to 24 bits of precision. Up until now, however, all of VIA’s products have featured AGP graphics connectivity and it doesn’t take a gifted mind to realize that the industry is trudging forward with PCI Express.

Lenovo Smart Display Review: SSD’s firmware encryption is pretty floppy. Obviously, this chipset’s big attraction is upgrading, since it lets the user chose whether to keep using AGP or deploy a new PCIe graphics card.


The reference motherboard is pretty huge, even though it does not have any additional hardware beyond the chipset features. Port multiplier devices will make it possible to attach several drives to each port, better utilizing the copious data ceiling enabled by SATA II.

But North Bridge is a feast for the eyes. The Surpassion of the Cougar.

And there is more to come too: What I saw in this case was that a spanned window played much slower than a window on the primary chipste card’s monitor. Vis, when we span a single game across two monitors, the same primary card is responsible for rendering both sides, but only a portion of the rendered image must be copied to the second card for output.

And of course a processor and a video card are of an immense contribution.
