Chipset recognized

The chipset is the heart of the computer and is the hub for all data transfer.
It determines how fast components like the processor, memory, keyboard and various plug-ins can function in relation to each other.

A Chipset is a corps of VLSI chip(Very Large Scale Integration Chips), which vital function execute in a computer system. Each function need one or more chip.

Not all chipsets support all components that you may want with your computer. Before selecting a chipset, decide what features you want with your computer, and then check to see that the chipset supports them.





Below is kind of Chip, replaced by a modern chipset:

  1. Memory Controller
  2. EIDE Controller (Enhanced Integral Drive Electronics) is a new version of IDE and improve maximum of harddisk able to be controlled from 504MB become 8.4GB.
  3. PCI Bridge (Peripheral Component Interface or Peripheral Component Interconnect) is a local bus standard provide by Intel and working with maximum 33Mhz. The bus wide is 32/64 bit, and transfer speed is 133MB/sec for 32 bit and 266MB/sec for 64bit. PCI dissociating (decouple) processor from bus expansion via bridge.
  4. RTC (Real-Time-Clock)
  5. DMA (Direct Memory Access) Controller. DMA is a one of technologies used by some hardware to move data from and to main memory without entangling CPU computer (Processor)
  6. Keyboard controller
  7. PS/2 mouse controller
  8. Secondary cache controller
  9. Low Power CMOS SRAM control


There is not all Chipset replacing all chip function. Chipset is not upgradeble like CPU, memory or harddisk.
