What motherboard has the SOYO Dragon chipset ?


Correct me if Im wrong on any of this. But I was reading about chipsets on motherboards and it said that the SOYO Dragon was the way to go if you have a Nvidia video card.

If this is ture, what brand am I looking for ?

Thanks

:cool:

It's not a chipset I didn't think? the soyo Dragon IS a mobo :p

The Soyo dragons use the Via KT266 chipset which is pretty much the performance leader...straight from soyo's website

D DR SDRAM

R AID controller on board

A udio on board, with 6-chanel Hardware Audio

G raphic, Universal AGP Pro slot

O verclocking, setup FSB by 1MHz increment

N etwork, 10/100 Mbps Ethernet

thats ya dragon :)

Back in super socket 7 days, nvidia cards used to hate ALI chipsets, but know apart from the occasional duff update all nvidia cards seem to work with just about any board.

Chipset:
· VIA KT266A Chipset (KT8366 North Bridge with VT8233 South Bridge).


I take it then this MOBO is a dragon chip set, right ?

This is the one I was looking to get !

Thanks to everyone for the replys.

I just bought a Dragon Plus!. MAKE SURE YOU BUY THE PLUS VERSION. THere is an enormous performance dfference between the Dragon and Dragon Plus!. The Plus has a revision 2 chipset (KT266A), which does offer a considerable performance increase.

no no famine...you missed the point..DRAGON is NOT a chipset!

DRAGON is a motherboard made by SOYO...it uses the VIA KT266 chipset...

The board you are lookin at uses the same chipset, but it is NOT a DRAGON...if you want a dragon goto www.soyo.com and choose america on the site map and then goto products and you can look at the dragon boards that are availible :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
