KT400A-8237 SOUND DRIVER

Created by the same lead engineer who designed the KTA, this new chipset is intended as an nForce2 killer. About us Privacy policy Mailing list Mobile. That importance is that it has a new memory controller. The KTA can supposedly perform just as well without the extra expense and trouble of a second memory channel. 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.

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 Before you go writing off the KTA as a non-event, though, listen up: But Kt400a-837 knows something about second efforts, too. 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. 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.

Let’s face it, those are the things we are really here to find out, but first the official package. This is what the VIA white paper states: Can VIA lt400a-8237 match up with the nForce2?

You can be for sure that this shares some technology with their Envy24HT zound chip that recently won awards at MacWorld for Best in Show. I am not an audiophile and never have been. If you are entertaining the idea of getting a KTA mainboard, I would highly suggest you make sure that the board you buy has the VT chip on it as you are very likely to be kicking yourself later if you do wound.

VIA’s marketing department celebrated this revamped memory controller by christening it with a new marketing it400a-8237 When it comes to sound solutions, the guys at TechReport have been doing the best job when it comes to subjective reporting on sound technologies so I would suggest looking to them when this technology hits the market.

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. But before we do so, we should check out a couple of other changes coming down the pike from VIA which will affect the KTA’s fortunes. All trademarks used are properties of their respective owners. The VT will be shipping in a couple of weeks. Plus VIA aims to bring some mighty big features to future mainboards with their new southbridge.

The rest of the north bridge, including the front-side bus, the AGP port, and the link to the south bridge, is largely unchanged. 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.
