Ik zag wat ABIT PR op Coolinfo, hier dus maar gepaste:
Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C. December 10, 1998—ABIT will begin implementing HighPoint Technology’s XStore Pro® and CD Xpress® in all of our motherboard packages starting at the beginning of 1999. XStore is a new Bus Master Driver and MMX Accelerator for Storage. If you hate to wait then XStore is for you. The XStore Pro is a hard disk enhancement utility which can improve the system performance. The basic concept is using read-ahead caching algorithm to improve the hard disk performance. It offers Performance, Compatibility, and Support. By getting rid of the Bus Master Driver you have now XStore offers better performance than Microsoft's default driver along with these additional features:
Supports and Automatically configures to the Highest Ultra DMA performance mode.
Supports and Automatically configures to the Highest Multiple-Word DMA performance mode.
Automatically recognizes and supports DVD-ROM
Automatically recognizes and supports the Latest Intel Chipsets (TX, LX, BX)
XStore's enhanced performance speed removes the burden from the CPU. Since intervention of the CPU is no longer necessary, data pathways are freed allowing the CPU more time to focus on processing other requests like MMX and AGP.
