RT.X100 Motherboard issues?
on Aug 31, 2002 at 6:33:44 am

Hello,

Matrox's web site states that the Asus P4T533-C motherboard is compatible with their RT.X100 card. However, it doesn't say anthing about the P4T533 motherboard. They're both based on the i850E chipset. They both support 533 FSB. They both use RAMBUS memory.

Can anyone tell me if I would run into problems buy purchasing the P4T533 motherboard for use with Matrox's RT.X100 board? I like the additional PCI slot and the RAID capabilities of the P4T533.

Thanks muchly!

which RAID controller is built on the motherboard. We have had TONS of problems with motherboards that have the RAID built on.

Hi there
I don't know if this helps at all, but I am using an Asus P4TE motherboard using the 850 chipset and have had absolutley no problems yet since I began using my Matrox RT X100 3 weeks ago. Good luck with your decision, hope all goes well!

I believe the RAID is based on the Promise chip.

What problems are you having?

Our customers have had many tech issues with built on raid controllers. Most times it is a driver or bios issue. But with some mobo / chipsets, the on board raid controllers gobble up resources and can actually slow down system performance and throughput for NLE.

That's why Videgoguys don't give them a strong recommendation. We aren't sying they don't work, it's just that too often they are troublesome.
