Albatron PX915GD Pro II ITE IDE RAID Driver
Albatron PXG Pro Written by Stephen Friday, 04 September Intel ICH6-R ITE ITF IDE RAID Controller Marvell Gigabit Ethernet mainly due to voltage generation devices necessary for the DDR-II modules and. Unlike with the PXP Pro, several items we would expect on say, user manual for configuration and proper usage of the ITE IDE RAID. Albatron Mars PXG Pro Motherboard Review - PCSTATS drives have received a big push by manufacturers, but let's face the facts, IDE is still a lot more prevalent. The PXG Pro addresses this with an 'ITE' RAID (modes 0, 1 and 0+1).

Albatron PX915GD Pro II ITE IDE RAID Driver
Mega way Intel and Motherboard Roundup
When the memory is no longer needed, it is then diverted back for system use which makes using onboard graphics slightly more appealing as the memory isn't permanently diverted, only when it is needed. However, we do believe that this should be actively cooled, as the I9xx series chipsets generate more heat than previous Intel chipsets.
When under full load the MCH gets quite hot. The Southbridge on this motherboard is simply the ICH6. This chipset supports most of the full fledged features with some limitations. The Serial ATA ports only function in a base mode, just like standard IDE ports do, so if you are Albatron PX915GD Pro II ITE IDE RAID of two drives in a Matrix array, this motherboard is not the answer.
Intel High Definition Audio is supported and provides up to 8 channels of excellent audio quality, without taxing the CPU as much as traditional AC'97 audio systems tend to do.
Albatron Mars PXG Pro Motherboard Review -
Passive cooling on the ICH6 is more than adequate as the ICH to the touch was only slightly warm when under full load. Albatron uses the Realtek RTL 8 channel audio codec for its onboard sound system. While you may not recognise this chip, it is the same one that Gigabyte uses on its motherboards, only it is named GigaRAID. While the locks are there, you won't be able to use them at this stage - hopefully a BIOS update will fix these problems in the near future.
Our first experience with an Albatron motherboard was a good one, and came a few months back Albatron PX915GD Pro II ITE IDE RAID their high-end iP model, the PXP Pro. In our time working with that motherboard, we found that the product package had its strong and weak points, namely that the included items were relatively few, but the documentation was excellent.
The board featured a solid design, a fair BIOS, and an overzealous overclocking claim. This motherboard features some of the same strengths and weaknesses found by the PXP Pro, but where have things improved?

Has Albatron improved overclocking capabilities with the iG board, namely can they compete with the big boys of the overclocking world? Read on to find out!
PXG Pro Specifications Intel iG South Bridge: PXG Pro Packaging I was initially expecting your general motherboard product package, with an expansion bracket here and there, but nothing of real substance besides the cabling and other must have components. To start things off, we have the various documentation items for the PXG Pro. Much like what we often see from the likes of Gigabyte in the past, and ABIT as of recent times, Albatron has chosen to include a fold-out, color Albatron PX915GD Pro II ITE IDE RAID guide.
This guide has a large portrayal of the motherboard on the front cover with all of the vital components and connectors labeled. As we progressed through reading the installation guide, we found that it is quite good in making sure to cover all of the important points that a first time builder would need to know. Granted, for the experienced user this guide will be overlooked, but for Albatron PX915GD Pro II ITE IDE RAID first time user this is a necessity.
The next item that we found was yet another feature that we like to see included with motherboards, that being a large sticker featuring a layout of the board. This sticker can be affixed to the interior of the case, and is easily accessible if needed. Finally, we have the manuals.
Once again, this is one aspect where the Albatron product shines in that not only does the manual come in several languages, but it also Albatron PX915GD Pro II ITE IDE RAID to cover all of the most important aspects of the board, such as pin diagrams of headers, jumper setting data, excellent coverage of the various BIOS options, and excellent driver installation instructions.
As far as hardware related inclusions go, the PXG Pro came with the bare minimum. The documentation that Albatron has included on the other hand is superb.
PXG Pro Layout: Socket Area As we progress around this motherboard, as well as many in the future, we will undoubtedly see the days of extremely clean and clear PCB surfaces head the way of the dodo. The Socket T is oriented lengthwise from East to West across the motherboard.
Due to the much improved mounting mechanics for the new LGA processors, Intel has done away with the large retention Albatron PX915GD Pro II ITE IDE RAID that was needed on the older Socket implementations. Around the Socket T, we find that Albatron has put to use the low profile component zones for the core voltage power supply. Albatron has implemented a three-phase design for the PXG Pro, as can be seen with the three side-mounted inductors, complete with their own encasings.
This is the first three-phase power solution that we have seen so far for any of the LGA motherboards. The components that make up the processor portion of the PXG Pro deal with the core voltage supply.
