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.
