Despite being chipset issues at heart, they created a lot of discussion about which KTA is “bug free” and which one performs the best. One of the biggest issues is with data corruption when combining a hard drive hooked up to the B South Bridge with a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! I have a via chipset and when I followed the link in the first post I discovered a file by the name of: Furthermore, several problems have recently been discovered with many of VIA’s chipset, with the KTA being one of the most affected. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff!

Taken together, these things could add up to one seriously fast Athlon platform for the overclockers among us. Heck, my own computer has been running on a KTA motherboard for a while now, come to think of it. This might as well be moved to G HW Forum.

I forget in which revision they solved the bug, but it dates way back. Originally posted by derk the unfortunate experience of getting a motherboard based on the VIA KTa chipset. At the same time, numerous BIOS updates and board revisions have been released that help to correct some the above problems. We like to mix it up to keep a little confusion going.
Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! A typical PC system configuration using the B south bridge. Have an ide raid controller card in my system but kt133s dont know how to use it correctly i think, have an hardrive ata on one channel, is it just to plug it in to the other channel and go?
Well, it’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here.
Via A here too. I have a Liteon s DVD burner connected to my main rig which is an nforce2 motherboard. So I installed this patch. Sorry about the cut-in question: A seperate ATA card seems to be the way to go.
A lot of users have discovered problems taking advantage of multiplier ratio settings on some KTA motherboards when trying to overclock to a MHz FSB. John and the gang at KickAss Gear. On a more serio Introduction It has been five months since VIA released the KTA chipset and most motherboard manufacturers have released their corresponding solutions as well.
Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Despite being chipset issues at heart, they created a lot of discussion about which KTA is “bug free” and which one performs the best.
You may check this link to find some hints for solving your problem. As such, we thought now would be a good time for us to take a look at all the KTA boards we have in the lab and see which is best overall.
YMMV, but I thought this might help people out. This last one is more of an issue with certain manufacturer’s implementations of multiplier controls, and not really a chipset problem. No more Via Apollo A problems for me! In theory, the KTA will be at a comparative disadvantage in certain scenarios where the system has to move large amounts of data from several sources and destinations at the same time.
If you are thinking about upgrading a chopset system, dropping in a KTA based motherboard is one of the most cost effective ways to do it, since you will be able to reuse existing PC memory. At the same time, problems with connecting certain USB devices also seems to create some problems.
That process uses Cinema Craft Encoder. Seriously, folks, the KTA cyipset been around for a while, and so has the skeleton of this review, on which I’ve finally found time to put some flesh. Thing is, ktt133a though DDR chipsets and motherboards are finally starting to hit the market in earnest, the KTA is increasingly looking like it’s going to be around for a while. As CPU’s become more and more powerful, memory bandwidth is getting to be more and more of a bottleneck.
