Thus, while you can play an 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. Beyond these similarities, however, the seven different members of the are quite different. If you buy a Pentium 4 or Celeron-based system with an Intel chipset, its quite likely the chipset it uses will be part of the Intel family. Toms Hardwares reviews of motherboards using the G include http: This is also called Thread-level parallelism, or TLP , and the new 3. The Santa Clara chip company ships vast volumes of motherboards of their own.

The Intel 845 Chipset Family

Motherboards using various members of the family are available from Intel and most other major motherboard vendors. 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. As Table 1 makes clear, different members of the family are best suited chipste different tasks. For instance, we reviewed the original chipset with DDR support using an Intel board and weren’t too impressed with the performance.

Intel’s PE and GE chipsets – The Tech Report – Page 1

The chipset family from Intel offers a wide range of performance and features, no matter what level of system performance you want. The integrated video in the GE is not 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.


With memory timings set aggressively, I’m happy to report that these boards perform quite well. Steam names the best-selling games of Please check back later.

Since its introduction in early January of this year, Intel’s DDR chipsets have been very popular among a wide range of people in the hardware industry. Post a Comment Comment. To be able to activate and utilize the HT Technology, you will need the following:.

Along the way, we reviewed a number of motherboards, some as recently as a month ago. Simply put, its a method for turning a single physical processor into two virtual processors, with each virtual processor handling different threads series of tasks. Intelligent Memory Management improves memory addressing, display buffer implementation, and memory efficiency.

Anandtechs review of the G and E chipsets http: If you need USB 2. You may unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. However, the E also supports ECC error correction, making this chipset an updated version of the Beyond that, the features are familiar: The Intel site for Hyper-Threading Technology is located at http: There’s no denying that based motherboards have been very reliable and high-performing since their inception.

Intel 845PE Chipset Finally Sinks RDRAM

There’s even an optional dancing midget. Despite the similarity in names, these last two members of the family chipsst from each other in some significant ways. Sharkey Extreme reviews the G at http: The technologies built into this architecture are discussed later in this article. These chipsets add official support for DDR memory, though in the case of G, the chipset has been unofficially quite capable of running DDR memory since its launch.


Traditionally, Intel boards have compromised performance and tweakability for stability and simplicity.

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. In keeping with its support for fast memory, the GE models integrated graphics runs at a core speed of MHz, while the G models integrated graphics run at only MHz.

That gives us the chance to see how the PE and GE chipsets really compare to the competition. Surveying Blue Mountain The biggest surprise of this whole experience for me has been playing with Intel’s new PE-based motherboard. 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.
