In today’s homogenous world, it makes a pleasing and refreshing change to see a manufacturer put some thought into the way their product looks. DVD encoding is another activity that thrives on memory bandwidth. The better memory optimisations at synchronous mode for the MSI board manage to see it oust the Asus board once more, even though the Asus was clocked marginally higher. We’ve seen that running RAM asynchronously at FSB improves theoretical performance, let’s see how this translated to real-world applications and benchmarks. I have tried this with legacy USB support both enabled and disabled, with the same result. Memory can be tweaked quite extensively too, with the inclusion of the performance-enhancing 1T command. A similar story unfolds here.

The greater memory throughput available allows the Athlon to truly flex its muscles in this test. Here you can see the comprehensive memory timing options available. As shown above, we chose the most aggressive options available in testing.
On closer inspection of the individual results, we find lutra Lobby tests gain the greatest improvement. We’ve found this combination to be the most stable in our stress tests. The RAID ports are sensibly placed at the bottom left of the board making connectivity simple.
One pleasant suprise for us is the estimated price. Benchmarks were run 3 times consecutively and an average score was taken. In today’s homogenous world, it makes a pleasing and refreshing change to see a manufacturer put some thought into the way their product looks.
Conclusion The first thing that is clearly evident here is the the evolutionary nature of the KT chipset. We can look back to the Sisoft Sandra unenhanced memory benchmarks for an explanation of the results. The inclusion of ATA support is another future-proof move that should pay dividends as soon as hard drives catch up.
That doesn’t change anything but we just found it interesting. About this product Product Information MSI specializes in the design and manufacturing of mainboards, interface cards, and barebones. We wish more mainboards would be designed in a friendly way towards larger heatsinks.
KT3-Ultra2 will not boot with USB storage device plugged in
We calculate the average FPS after 20, frames have been encoded. A similar story unfolds here.
Naturally, having data stored over two drives means less latency but also more risk. Firstly let’s have a look at the KT chipset in a little more detail. However, we ran the MSI Ulrta result three times, each time the results were within a second of each other, so we can be sure of our numbers.
Best Selling in Motherboards See all. We’ve seen that running RAM asynchronously at FSB improves theoretical performance, let’s see how this translated to real-world applications and benchmarks.
One interesting inclusion that we’ve not seen before is support, albeit limited, for bluetooth wireless communication. However, as you will see later in this review, the benefits of DDR are tangible. You may also like.
The results were consistent msu within 0. Via’s engineers were given the task of improving the KTA’s lacklustre performance, they came up with something not far short of remarkable.

Providing high-quality assurance and customer trust has always been MSI’s foremost goal. The better memory optimisations at synchronous mode for the MSI board manage to see it oust the Asus board once more, even though the Asus was clocked marginally higher. Skip to main content.
