However, this inflicted a performance penalty on graphical performance since PCI has significantly lower bandwidth throughput than AGP. Articles needing additional references from January All articles needing additional references. The BX became one of Intel’s most popular chipsets. There seems to be a bit of confusion with the term “single-sided” versus “double-sided”. Choose chipsets for extreme power and performance, for consumers and enthusiasts, or for the enterprise. Do I need ECC memory? Such modules won’t work, they look quite similar from a chipset perspective to type 1 , but they require the so-called “8k refresh” and the bx chipset only supports up to 4k refresh.

Usually it is recommended to use the same ram modules for all ram slots, but it should work without problems if you mix different brands, speed grades, sizes. Choose chipsets for extreme power and performance, for consumers and enthusiasts, or for the enterprise.

These modules consist of 2 banks, each bank has 4 chips. They are mostly used in cheap generic ram an exception are registered ram modules, where such chips seem to be quite common and where they shouldn’t cause any problems in a board with a chipset which supports them – but unfortunately the bx does not.

However, there are some caveats. RAM modules compatible with motherboards based on the ibx chipset This FAQ will help you to find out which ram modules will work in your motherboard based on the bx chipset. I don’t guarentee they won’t eat your head if you order from them or anything. The item selected cannot be compared to the items already added to compare. Originally posted by IceStorm: Thu Mar 22, With footprint compatibility with the BX, the ZX is chhipset to allow OEMs to leverage BX design and validation investment to produce new systems to meet entry level market segment needs.

Also, make sure it’s not a Tualatin or you’ll need an adapter.

Please remove one or more items before adding more. If that happens, you’ll need one of those high-quality slockets, to change the reported-VID to something supported 1.

May 28, Posts: The good news is the board “probably” has 4 memory slots and 4 x can be found dirt cheap. Can you explain a bit more on those 16Mx8 etc. EDO and FPM modules can be buffered or unbuffered, and sdram modules can be registered or unbuffered the term unregistered is sometimes used too.

Here you can find the “number of banks 05 ” not to be confused with the “number of banks on each memory device 17 “, this isn’t that important and the “module bank density”. If you use three or less modules, usually registered memory isn’t required, and you shouldn’t buy it – it is more expensive and slower. Unofficially Achieved Bus Speeds. I recall working on a few Intel brand BX boards that wouldn’t work with any MHz P3 unless they were a certain revision. Not nearly as worthwhile as the additional RAM alone.

High density memory is sold as http: I don’t completely understand that. So it might not be too surprising that some utilities report them as the same.
