However, the Intel and series werent designed to work with the Pentium 4 or Celeron 4 processors and didnt offer advanced 3D graphics. Dynamic Video Memory Technology manages memory sharing between display, applications and the operating system depending upon the memory requirements of the programs running. Toms Hardwares reviews of the E: Put it this way: The E and PE Despite the similarity in names, these last two members of the family differ from each other in some significant ways. Motherboards using various members of the family are available from Intel and most other major motherboard vendors. Now that these new chipsets has arrived, DDR memory will probably become the industry standard in a matter of weeks.

That gives us the chance to see how the PE and GE chipsets really compare to the competition. The technologies built into this architecture are discussed later in this 845be. On a black PCBfor gosh sakes. Thus, while you can play chipseet occasional game with the G-series systems with integrated video, if you want serious game play, youre much better off with one of the models which support AGP 4x and DDR memory such as the GE or PE.
If youre considering moving to a 3GHz or faster Pentium 4 processor or a new motherboard or system based on an series chipset, the issue of Hyper-Threading HT chipseet support is very important. The Intel G and GE chipsets offer the best of both worlds because they offer integrated video for initial use plus an AGP 4x slot for future high-performance video upgrades.
Intel® G/GL/GE/GV Chipset Features
While integrated video reduces system costs up-front, most integrated chipsets leave users dangling when its time to improve performance because they dont offer an AGP 4x slot.
The E and PE Despite the similarity in names, these last two members of the family differ from each other in some significant ways. To be able to activate and utilize the HT Technology, you will need the following: Page 1 of 1.
ExtremeTech reviews the PE at: 845gs the Blue Mountain, and you know things have changed. Finally, you will also need an operating system designed to support dual processors, currently the only operating systems that support HT Technology are Windows XP Home and Professional editions.
The chipsets are listed in power from left to right, and are separated by whether they have integrated video or not. While Extreme Graphics Architecture improves 3D rendering compared to Intels earlier integrated video chipsets, the and series chipsets, which had no 3D functions at chi;set, its performance and features still lag behind even current mid-range video chipsets from nVidia and ATI.

Both chipsets offer enhanced bit audio and support for digital video and TV-out. It offers an AGP 4x video slot, but has no onboard video.
The PE chipset addresses this shortcoming. There’s even an optional dancing midget.
Intel’s 845PE and 845GE chipsets
Rapid Pixel and Texel Rendering Engine uses pipelines to overlap 2D and 3D operations, provides 8x data compression to improve the use of memory bandwidth, and features a multi-tier cache for 3D operations. Hyper-Threading HT Technology If youre considering moving to a 3GHz or faster Pentium 4 processor or a new motherboard or system based on an series chipset, the issue of Hyper-Threading HT technology support is very important.
Chippset fact, Intel boards have been something of a problem for us, because their relatively low performance has made chipset comparisons chipzet this one difficult. The integrated video in the GE is cuipset quite as fast as a separate AGP 4x card, but the integrated video can be disabled and replaced by an AGP 4x card for greater performance if desired. Then, shortly thereafter, we were forced to reconsider once we got our hands on Abit’s implementation.
Use Table 1 to provide an overview of the major differences between each of these chipsets. Put it this way: With seven different models to choose from, selecting the right series chipset can be tricky.
However, Intel isn’t one to jump the gun on chupset standards, to say the least.
Sharkey Extreme reviews the G at http: Intel Website Resources Get more details about the family and other Intel chipset from the Intel Chipsets page at http: To be able to activate and utilize the HT Technology, you will need the following:. Extreme Graphics Architecture is discussed at http: Get more details about the family and other Intel chipset from the Intel Chipsets page at http: Intel says these expanded BIOS options are here to stay, too, so Intel boards should be a little more adjustable from here out.
These chipsets also support Intels Extreme Graphics Architecture for improved 3D performance, discussed later in this article. Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.
