RAID 1 backs-up the data on one drive and mirrors it on the redundant drive, far more useful for data safety. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. The ample bandwidth afforded by DDR seems more suited to the role. There was talk of incorporating USB 2. However, as you will see later in this review, the benefits of DDR are tangible. Another bracket offers up to 4 USB 2.

The first thing that strikes you about this board is the colour.

Most of today’s most demanding applications are memory bandwidth hungry, therefore it stands to reason that a more efficient memory controller should, ceteris paribus, bring about greater performance. We calculate the average FPS after 20, frames have been encoded. As shown above, we chose the most aggressive options available in testing. Benchmarks were run 3 mssi consecutively and an average score was taken.

A similar story unfolds here. Naturally, having data stored over two drives means less latency but also more risk. Overall, we’re pretty pleased with the layout of the board. RAID 1 backs-up the data on one drive and mirrors it on the redundant drive, far more useful for data safety.

At present, only Maxtor, in the form of the DX series, currently have hard drives on the market that comply with this new standard.

kkt3 Three Kings is the DVD of choice, it’s mixture of action and dialogue make it an excellent benchmarking test. The fact that the MSI ca put almost marks into the Asus whilst running at a slightly lower clock speed speaks volumes for MSI’s memory efficiency. You’re greeted by a cacophony of buzzers if you connect the heatsink fan to anything other than the designated CPU fan header, we thought all hell had broken loose.

Let’s illustrate our point pictorially. Let’s msj a look at the board and its specification. We tried to engineer a situation where stability would be compromised.

The integrated USB 1. We tried the test at different CPU speeds and found the boards tied for performance. Often it is these little things that really only cause issues when the board is installed and you trying to get at something without pulling out bunch of wires or cards. In that time we didn’t have one crash that could be attributable to the motherboard, It was and is the paradigm of stability.

Further adjustments are available for the AGP slot. This codec offers genuine improvements over the standard AC97 that ships with most motherboards.

MSI have a deserved history of producing rock-solid motherboards that arrive in the marketplace shortly after a chipset revision. Ulgra was talk of incorporating USB 2. At first glance, the numbers look disarmingly similar. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. Features and Installation The extensive specification list informs you that this board is jam-packed with features. We’re seeing consistent results that seem to indicate that DDR can positively impact on performance, albeit in a small way.

Any reduction in time would be more than welcome. The KTA boasted an enhanced North bridge with a far more efficient memory controller coupled with deeper memory buffers. Expect offerings from all the major manufacturers to hit the retail shelves shortly. To measure the limitation of our board, we used a factory-unlocked 1.

It seems as if Via are waiting for AMD to make the first move and then follow with a compliant chipset. Still, with a total of eight USB ports, we’re sure you wouldn’t miss one.

Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. This was a surprise and a nice change at that. We ran the benchmark at Fastest and xx32 Quality.
