The i440BX Chipset

When looking at Processors and Motherboards it makes sense to look at chipsets as well. Why? Well both the motherboard and the processor of a PC depend upon the chipset for their operation. The chipset determines what processor fits into a motherboard and what features such as AGP, U/DMA 66, bus speeds and so forth. This is why we at the Processor Emporium have decided to dedicate more space to those important chips fitted to motherboards commonly known as the chipset, and they have now been given a section all of their own.

This page aims to deal with all the popular chipsets right through from Socket 7 examples such as Intel's HX and TX through to the modern BX and i820, not fogetting the non-Intel chipsets from the likes of VIA and ALi. We will still keep our old Chipset Guide, but we will expand our page to deal with individual chipsets and many other issues surrounding the issue of chipsets.
