Both support SD-RAM. New features are AGP, which is a new high speed graphics bus (Accelerated Graphics Port). htm (5 of 12) [4/15/1999 6:18:47 AM] An illustrated Guide to Chipsets The AGP-bus runs at 66 MHZ - twice the speed of the PCI bus. This gives new power to the video system, and it frees the PCI bus from all the heavy video work. The AGP adapters also extend their memory using parts of the mainboard RAM as a bit map cache. ATA-33 permits EIDE hard disks to transfer at up to 33 MBps - a data volume which no hard disk can deliver.
The last (HX) was the fastest one. The two sets are similar, yet different. 430HX consists of two chips. It is designed for the more professional PC's. 430VX consists of four chips. Its cost is slightly lower than HX. It is aimed at the home use PC market. Let us look at the contents of each chip set: Chip set Contents 82430HX 82439HX System Controller (TXC) + 82371SB PCI ISA IDE Accelerator 82430VX 82437VX System Controller (TVX) + 2 stk. 82438VX Data Path Units (TDX) + 82371SB PCI ISA IDE Accelerator Common to both chip sets is 82371SB, which is a "PCI ISA IDE accelerator chip".
However, for the CPU to work with those data, they must be read into the working memory storage, which is made up of RAM chips. To examine RAM, we need to look at the following: ● RAM types (FPM, EDO, ECC, and SD RAM) ● RAM modules (SIMM and DIMM) in different versions ● RAM and the system bus First, let us look back in time. Not too many years ago, Bill Gates said, that with 1 MB RAM, we had a memory capacity, which would never be fully utilized. That turned out to be untrue. Historical review Back in the 80's, PC's were equipped with RAM in quantities of 64 KB, 256 KB, 512 KB and finally 1 MB.
