Created by the same lead engineer who designed the KTA, this new chipset is intended as an nForce2 killer. The KTA can supposedly perform just as well without the extra expense and trouble of a second memory channel. The second board was rock solid in gaming, but it wouldn’t POST with on-board audio enabled. VIA provided us with a beta copy of its Sensaura drivers for testing with the KTA, but unfortunately, we weren’t able to test it adequately. Sensaura’s software algorithms will, of course, require some CPU overhead, but VIA claims the impact on performance is fairly minimal.

Steam names the best-selling games of But before we do so, we should check out a couple of other changes coming down the pike from VIA which will affect audoo KTA’s fortunes. The KTA can supposedly perform just as well without the extra expense and trouble of a second memory channel.
Chipsets Previous page Next page. The Sensaura drivers provide VTbased audio solutions a full range of positional audio features, including compatibility with all the major audio APIs: The extra bandwidth will be useful, because the will support as many as eight USB 2.

No Interruptions Day Shortbread. 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, k400a-8235 then with the south bridge.
Dell returns to the stock market after six years.
Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. 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.

Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Its second-revision chipsets, like KTA and KTA, have traditionally been notable improvements over the first revs.
Serial ATA in its native state: The first and most obvious piece of this puzzle is the six-channel AC97 audio controller integrated into the VT south bridge chip. The rest of the north bridge, including the front-side bus, the AGP port, and the link to the south bridge, is largely unchanged.
Can VIA really match up with the nForce2? The VT chip can convert six audio channels simultaneously with bit resolution. VIA’s marketing name for this architecture is “CoolAmp.

LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. A reworked memory controller has given the nForce line a new lease on life. If VIA kt400a-8235 persuade its motherboard partners away from using Realtek’s popular and no doubt dirt-cheap ALC, then KTA boards may be much more competitive with nForce2 solutions, at least for analog output. Our first KTA reference board, an early revision, wasn’t stable in 3D games. Steam names the best-selling games of Sensaura’s software algorithms will, of course, require some CPU overhead, but VIA claims the impact on performance is fairly minimal.
