In spring we reviewed functionality of the new Intel chipset series —
945/955. Even though we had already published the first reviews of
motherboards on these chipsets by that time, we took care not to speak
of the performance of the new products on the whole. According to the
first results, i945/955 chipsets not only failed to outperform their
predecessors (i915/925), but were actually slower.
Having assumed that
the problem was in early BIOS versions of the motherboards on the new
chipsets, we decided to wait for some time and carry out performance
tests only when we were sure of stability. It's nearly six months
already — quite a sufficient term in all respects for the
manufacturers to fine-tune their products. So today we are going to
compare i955X with i925XE and in the nearest future we shall publish a
large roundup of motherboards on the new series of chipsets. Head over to Digit Life to read more.
