Previously tested chipsets
This section lists chipsets that have been tested for use with a Matrox RT.X system.
Important Be sure to check the individual compatibility information for the motherboard or system of your choice to see which display cards and sound cards have been tested with it,
as well as to read about any known issues.
|The following chipsets have been tested with the recommended system configuration.|
|Intel||845E, 845PE, 865P, 875P, 7205, 7505*|
|*||You must use either the onboard audio device, or a Creative Technology audio card (such as a Creative Sound Blaster card), in a Matrox RT.X system with an Intel 7505 chipset. All other audio devices are incompatible.|
|The following chipsets have been tested with the minimum system configuration.|
|The following chipsets are incompatible for use with Matrox RT.X.|
|VIA (AMD)**||KT133A, KT266, KT266A, KT333, KT400, KT400A|
|VIA (Intel)**||PRO133A, P4X266A|
|**||These VIA chipsets for Intel and AMD processors are not recommended for use with a Matrox RT.X system because they do not work well when editing or playing back segments on the Timeline that contain two video layers, one graphics layer, and a 3D effect. These chipsets have all demonstrated a PCI bandwidth limitation when reading from host memory (RAM). This is seen when heavy PCI bandwidth (such as for video, graphics, and effects) is required by several PCI devices at the same time.|
