There are other more obscure problems like AGP signal strength and AGP timing issues which can make communications between the motherboard and video card unreliable.

As far as drivers and patches and such.. Below in the table you can see basic characteristics for comparison with the nearest competitors:. There are a few motherboards which do not use the correct AGP connector. Currently, this is not installed because I didn’t fully appreciate its importance. It was followed by AGP 2.

Below is a copy of the registry key to edit the registry manually with or you can simply download the pre-made reg file and automatically import it into the system registry and make Windows run at 4x AGP on VIA Chipsets that support 4x AGP. When passing to high FSB frequency the chipset’s time charts change a little it looks like that tk133a increase time delays of some signals in order to provide stable work.

Considering the today’s price for memory the KTA based boards make very beneficial purchase. It makes sense, if you think about it, because if anyone actually shipped a consumer-oriented product which supported only 0.

If the card has both slots then it can use both signaling voltages. ATX form factor 2. I will also select “yes” to install the other 3 segments of the 4in1 driver. Update – Ahp to an excess amount of TweakTown users asking how to do this same registry hack in Windows 9x we have updated this guide and included the registry hack for Windows 95, 98, 98se and ME.


The fan keeps the Northbridge cooler and adds stability at the higher bus speeds offered on the newer boards. I ran it with a MHz Athlon Thunderbird CPU and it easily got the Tbird up to MHz, obviously this has a lot to do with the choice of CPU, but the Abit board with all it’s tweaks offers the best aagp chance of overclocking the CPU and running it successfully, Abit have been loudly touting the 3 phase power circuits built on the board whilst over manufacturers stick with a 2 phase voltage circuit design, the 3 phase power design is supposed to offer better stability under the high current loads of the latest CPU’s and especially the overclocked Tbird’s, and it also offers much better heat dissipation, throughout the boards components.

AGP compatibility for sticklers

Please clear CMOS setting. The New Year and Christmas holidays are upcoming, and this is the time when the companies are selling much more products, and they traditionally prepare something new.

Power supply information Compatibility issues for ATX power supplies and motherboards A short history of PC power supply voltage rails So what’s all this rubbish about multiple 12 volt rails? The 2x multiplier is optional.

AGP4x + VIA Chipsets Fix

The technical specifications for motherboards tend to be just as sloppy as they are for video cards. If you’re buying a motherboard from someone you’ve never heard of, it might be a good idea to check that kf133a used the right AGP connector.

When checked again the system worked stable at MHz and at MHz the computer buzzed during first minutes. Likewise an AGP 1. Return to General Old Hardware. I know Far Cry is a super demanding game and outclassed this hardware, but do the math The range of conflicting addresses varies from case to case. This one is by Gainward, and a review can be found here – http: Fortunately, it also has circuitry which prevents damage when a 3.


Though this is quite useful feature when assembling a computer since you don’t always understand what signals can mean. If you wait for the picture above to load you will see the memory benchmarks are taken at aggp various different settings and finally with the FSB maxed out at MHZ with all the various options in the Abit BIOS turned on for extra memory performance. The most interesting feature is “Red Storm” technology, it allows making so called “Auto Overclocking”, it means that within some time the system itself will set the most appropriate clock speed.

I also set the AGP aperature from 64 to According to the AGP specifications there should be no damage, but the combination would not be compatible.

EPoX EP-8KTA3+ – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT133A

A bit later we will consider what means the suffix “X” in the name and other mt133a, and now – meet our chipset! Each AGP card has one or two slots in its card edge.

As you can see the difference is very insignificant both in case of the KT and with the Ali Magik1. Abit where among the first to fit a Fan on the Northbridge chipset, they set the trend, now heatsink and fans are common on nearly every recent motherboard Northbridge controller.

In the cases I’ve seen, there doesn’t seem to be any way to predict from the video card chipset and motherboard chipset whether there will be a problem.

Click here for a slightly more thorough rundown on RAID. So seems about right for a Ti with everything at stock speed. Every single video card I could find which claimed to be an AGP 3.
