I have a few questions, surronding the VIA chipset. I'll mention my hardware first if it would come up in the questions or needed to answer any questions.
Thank you for taking time to read my post!
AMD Athlon XP +1800
Soltek Motherboard 75DRV-2
VIA Apollo KT266a Chipset
Inno 3D Geforce 3 Ti 200
SB pci 128
1) PCI Latency (problems with choppy 3D graphics performance)
Is there any guidline one can follow to set up PCI latency for different PCI units? My soundcard is currently at latency 64, but my Relatek Ethernet card is very high at latency 128 which I might suspect is causing some of the choppy graphics as I play online. Also my AGP gfx card is at latency 228.
I'm also wondering if there is any way to initialize the pci latencies with an easy program that boots at start up but terminates after windows loaded?
I'm also unsure what my pci-latencies should be at, for example how much the CPU should have access and hard drives etc, or just leave them at default? (I'm very uncertain how this works)
Is there any documentation out there on kt266 chipset, specifically on what all the registers do? For example what register on a PCI unit is the latency register, so one knows for certain and don't mess up anything in WPCREDIT.
3) "Sandra Benchmark vs BIOS" Deathmatch
I notice a funny thin today, my Award BIOS for my Soltek 75DRV-2 says that my FSB is at 133MHz, which would make my CPU 1,533 GHz as the standard non overclocked Amd Athlon XP +1800 which I want it to be.
However, Sandra Sisoftwares benchmark and other software reports that my FSB is 134MHz and CPU then at 1,544+ Ghz. Which means it is a little overclocked LoL! I don't really trust my BIOS, and would like to try to get FSB down to 133MHz (not that it matters much, just out of principle).
Is it possible to edit with WPCREDIT to force my FSB to 133MHz again, which my BIOS is reporting? And if it's possible what register would this be in WPCREDIT?.
If you are reading this sentence, I have to thank you again for your time and patience to have read through my post!
