Chipset 815E

A little of recent history

In the last times Intel had become almighty (also) on the chipsets market for basic badges, making use of both his production capacity and his undeniable technological merits... and, of course, his perfect knowledge of the microprocessors that she the same factory. The best exponent of this power has been the excellent chipset 440BX.

Nevertheless, last year has been an authentic nightmare for Intel in this segment, owed undoubtedly to:

  1. the election of the most expensive memory Rambus for his chipset "covers with stars", 820;

  2. to awful yield of 820 with memory SDRAM (PC100/PC133);

  3. to the problems of functioning of 820 with the above mentioned memory SDRAM;

  4. to the problems and debts of the "professional" and expensive one 840;

  5. to the absence of support AGP in the chipsets "of consumption" 810 and 810E.
¿Consecuencia? Que un pequeño fabricante (comparado con Intel, se entiende) como ROUTE has taken a considerable part of the market from him. But now Intel extracts the chipsets 815 and 815E (also known like Solano and Solano 2), and it seems that he has learned of his many recent errors... or at least of almost all.

 

Characteristics

In principle, we might define to 815/815E like some "810/810E optimized and with AGP"; as the 810, the 815 incorporate an integrated, derivative graphic checker of the already ancient graphic chip Intel 740 and practically the same one in both chipsets families.

Nevertheless, and unlike the 810, the 815 they support grooves AGP; that is to say, that if the yield of the integrated checker does not satisfy us, we can connect a graphic card AGP (a TNT2, one GeForce, an ATI Rage Fury 128 MAXX...) and to enjoy a much major yield... but we will speak already more on this then.

On the other hand, there is included support of memory SDRAM PC133 and, in the model 815E, of other progress; consult the following table (courteousness of Intel) for the details:
