VIA vs. Intel - Core 2 Duo chipset shootout

Posted on Tuesday, August 22 2006 @ 02:05:03 CEST by

The performance of the VIA P4M890 has amazed me and I cannot help but wonder how well this chipset could performance without certain limitations. For starters the single-channel DDR2-533 memory support is very out dated, as dual-channel DDR2-667 has been a standard for quite some time now. In fact the majority of chipsets that support DDR2 memory these days officially support up to at least DDR2-800 in dual-channel mode. This obviously places the P4M890 and the ASUS P5VD2-MX motherboard at a clear disadvantage when compared to the latest NVIDIA and Intel chipsets. This is quite disappointing as VIA have been known in the past to develop some of the best memory controllers in the business.
