2/21/2002: ROUTE throws (officially) the KT333
Only a few hours ago, ROUTE has announced officially the throwing of his new chipset for the processors AMD; curiously, this chipset seems that it was already taking several weeks in manufacture, although certain technical problems have "recommended" to delay the official throwing. Between his most important characteristics we can quote the following ones:
- Support for the new memory "DDR 333" ("PC 2700"); that is to say, memory DDR-SDRAM to 333 "equivalent" MHz (166 physical MHz with double sign use), which is translated in an increase of 25 % of the band (2,7 GB/s).
- New interface IDE Ultra ATA-133, which according to ROUTE offers an increase of the band of 33 % between the hard disk and the chipset (NOTE OF WRITING: good, at least theoretically... us pay attention, do not throw his current hard disk).
- There breaks the ancient limitation of the size of the hard disks, which capacity will be able to overcome the 137 GB (NOTE OF WRITING (Juan H.): more than there would occupy 35.000 files MP3, if the memory does not trump me).
Since it is natural, compatibility is offered for the "ancient" memoirs DDR 200 and DDR 266, and the speed of the system bus will be able to be asynchronous, since mikes AMD still do not exist with 333 MHz bus , but "only" of 266 MHz; it is a luck, we will not have to throw our flaming Athlon XP!!
... For not speaking about the fact of which scarcely there exist modules of memory guaranteed for 333 MHz, and less still that they support to be formed by a CAS=2...: does the technology go too rapid?
