Companies based in Hsinchu Companies established in Electronics companies of Taiwan Graphics hardware companies Semiconductor companies of Taiwan Taiwanese brands. MSI are seemingly making a concerted effort to distinguish their boards from the rather homogenous motherboard world. By very definition this almost precludes an extensive feature list. Probably the is better since it supports mhz bus speed, but being an oem mb it won’t be easy to update the bios and so on. It’s too bad I was always partial to SIS and have no other chipsets to compare.

It’s easy to add or remove the IDE cables as they aren’t obscured by the drives they service, this would have been the case if they were in their usual position sitting alongside the DDR slots. It was definitely low cost, which lead to a lot of the budget manufacturer’s using SIS en-mass along in boards with onboard video and audio before onboard video and audio were common in custom machines. You’re given the choice of running at either CAS2. We see that 3: Layout As is our customary tradition, we start at the top and work our way down.

We ran the motherboard with the strictest memory timings over a continuous 24 hour period. This is a device that comes with an inbuilt processor to synchronize data to handle all the audio functions.

I personally think this is a good idea, it shows that a motherboard manufacturer cares about the way their product looks.

A comprehensive comparison based on facts would be a cool thing to do. Gigabyte SiS Audio Driver.

It would make initial installation of all your devices that little bit easier. You are also given the option of running the performance-enhancing 1T memory command. The locking mechanism is a nice touch, it shows MSI’s attention to detail. That was probably the last time the SiS chipset was relevant.

Once rebooted it guesses a decent, overclocked speed, quite clever really. The software bundle is solid, too.

We encountered no such problems when running at DDR The Ultra continues the red theme that has been prevalent from MSI of late. Will the giagbyte on the internets become more few?

SiS created a multimedia chipset for the Xbox I don’t recall now what board givabyte chipset it was, only that one day it decided to go “pop” and took 1 of my hard drives out with it.


Their varying combinations can help the end-user to define the exact nature of the problem at hand. This is a tool ideal for all. What was the best tech product of ? This was about a year before the motherboard died. Users browsing this forum: Once an AGP card is inserted, you cannot remove system memory without first having to remove the video card.

As you can see, there are a multitude of six available, thereby ensuring you get the most out of your Gigabtte. It also acts as a rudimentary problem-solving device.

The memory controller has been enhanced from the transition from Socket A to Sockettoo. Archived copy as title Webarchive template wayback links Articles containing Chinese-language giagbyte Commons category link is on Wikidata.

SiS and MSI’s engineers certainly seem to know how to engineer a stable board. In hindsight the SIS boards from manufacturer’s like Asus, Abit, and Gigabyte amount others were actually quite high performers.

You can spot the ‘signature’ red from MSI easily.
