The Intel series might be the most versatile chipset family that Intel has ever developed. Toms Hardwares reviews of the E: Views Read Edit View history. Since mid, the large motherboard manufacturers noticed an increased complaint ratio with motherboards equipped with ICH5. There is no version for desktop motherboards. Beyond these similarities, however, the seven different members of the are quite different.

Intel 815 Chipset

Accordingly, starting with the Intel 5 Seriesa new architecture was used that incorporated some functions of the traditional north and south bridge chips onto the CPU itself, with the remaining functions being consolidated into a single Platform Controller Hub PCH. 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.

The Intel site for Hyper-Threading Technology is located at http: In comparison with the ICH2, the changes were limited: As Table 1 makes clear, different members of the family are best suited for different tasks. 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.

ich22 Despite the similarity in names, these last two members of the family differ from each other in some significant ways. Page 1 of 1. Dynamic Video Memory Technology manages memory sharing between display, applications and the operating system depending upon the memory requirements of the programs running.


Both use the same video memory sizing rules as the GL and GV models do when integrated video is used. This replaces the traditional two chip setup. Like the preceding ijtel, the ICH4 had pins.

Intelligent Memory Management improves memory addressing, display buffer implementation, and memory efficiency.

It supports various interfaces to “low-speed” peripherals, and it supports a suite of icj2 functions. Use Table 1 to provide an overview of the major differences between each of these chipsets. InIntel delivered ICH3, which was available in two versions: The chips had pins.

The features of the icj2 for a solid system, but also indicate that the is a bit behind the cool technology curve.

Well start with an analysis of iintel Intel chipset, followed by comparisons with other members of the family. 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.

For the first time a Fast Ethernet chip was integrated into the southbridge, depending upon an external PHY chip. The Hub Interface was a point-to-point connection between different components on the motherboard.

Intel Website Resources Get more details about the family and other Intel chipset from the Intel Chipsets page at http: Sound support was improved and corresponded the newest AC’97 specification, version 2.

X86 cpus’ Guide – View details on Intel ICH2

It is designed to be paired with a second support chip known as a northbridge. Intel x86 microprocessors Intel products Intel chipsets. While integrated video reduces system costs up-front, most integrated chipsets leave users dangling when its time to improve performance because they dont offer icb2 AGP 4x slot. These chipsets also support Intels Extreme Graphics Architecture for improved 3D performance, discussed later in this article.


Beyond these similarities, however, the seven different members of the are quite different. As CPU speeds increased data transmission between the CPU and support chipset, the support chipset eventually emerged as a bottleneck between the processor and the motherboard.

Both chipsets offer enhanced bit audio and support for digital video and TV-out. In general, the best chipset with integrated video is the GE, and the best chipset without integrated video is the PE. The PE and GE are identical except the GE also includes integrated video, which allows a lower cost system to be constructed no separate video card is required. In practice, most baseboard manufacturers still offered PATA appropriate connection types using additional chips from manufacturers such as JMicron or Marvell.
