Volgens postings op het Intel motherboard forum heeft de Intel Cape Cod moederplank (i820 SDRAM versie) een 30 tot 40% lagere memory performance als de goede oude BX chipset. Intel bedankt!
The much-delayed, blah, blah, blah, i820 chipset finally saw the light of day in cut-down form, both the Rambus Vancouver (VC820) and SDRAM Cape Cod being restricted to a maximum of 512MB of RAM. There are still problems getting hold of the Rambus jobo, however.
Because the i820 chipset was designed for Rambus, the PC100 CC820 mobo has a Memory Translator Hub (MTH) to act as a go-between for the CPU and the memory.
[...] Postings on the Intel motherboard forum cite a memory performance degradation of between 30 and 40 per cent when moving from a BX mobo to a Cape Cod.
The VC820 Rambus version should be a tad faster, but with RDRAM costing around four times as much as PC100 memory, you'd have to be bonkers to go down that route.
