  • Conclusion: As I mentioned earlier, one of the main factors that led me to choose this board was its ability to support both SDRAM and DDRAM. DDRAM, or Double Datarate RAM, theoretically provides a marked improvement over the old SDRAM. As you probably know, SDRAM is generally tied to the motherboard's FSB (the SiS 735 lets you specify different FSBs for the CPU and memory, but traditionally, they've been one and the same).

ECS K7S-5A DDR Motherboard Review

  • Conclusion: As the results on the previous screen show, this is a speedy board. The SiS735 chipset, combined with a fast T-Bird and DDRAM, turns in some very impressive numbers. Benchmarks aside, the performance of the system on a totally subjective scale is impressive. Not so much difference in games--that being increasingly up to the GPU these days--but in raw data-crunching (encoding files and so forth), it really does perform impressively well.

ECS K7S5A Review

  • Conclusion: Well folks, SiS 735 boards are finally here, and it looks like the solid performance we witnessed a few months ago was indeed legitimate -- the SiS 735 chipset is indeed a serious competitor to AMD's 760 chipset. Who would've thought we'd be saying that four months ago? ECS's K7S5A offers everything you'd want in a workhorse machine: strong performance, a well-rounded feature set, and rock-solid stability. On top of all this, it comes at an outrageously low price!

Elitegroup K7S5A (SockelA)

19 June 2003
  • Excerpt: (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Die Firma Elitegroup hat als erster Mainboardhersteller ein Board mit dem neuen SIS735 auf den Markt gebracht. Das besondere am SIS735 Chipsatz ist, dass es nicht mehr wie z.B. beim VIA KT133(A) Chipsatz eine North- und Southbridge gibt, sondern alle Funktionen (AGP, RAM, CPU, IDE, PCI, USB) sozusagen in einem Chipsatz vereint sind.
