It throttles at many of times per second at least, if not dozens and hundreds. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. If its throttling between MB and MB, the amount of time its residing in lower power mode turns out to be your final speed. System Information Kit Installed: Views Read Edit View history. Possibly it was reaching max speeds when you copied the drive, because that is all it had going on. This replaces the traditional two chip setup.

InIntel delivered ICH3, which was available in two 82801jbm For the first time a Fast Ethernet chip was integrated into the southbridge, depending upon an external PHY chip. It is designed to be paired with a second support chip known as a northbridge.

IntelĀ® I/O Controller Hub 8 (ICH8) Family Specification Update

In early Intel had suffered a significant setback with the i northbridge. Do you already have an account? IntelUserAug 19, Notably there is support of ‘hot-swap’ functionality. I was having a hell of a time intsl out how to use baredit, and since there isn’t a tutorial I could find I’m worried that I’m going to screw ich8m-dk up. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Customers were not willing to pay the high prices for RDRAM and either bought i or iBX motherboards or changed to the competition.


The Hub Interface was a point-to-point connection between different components on the motherboard. Your name or email address: After all, its a laptop and its inyel to conserve more power compared to desktop variants. Yes, my password is: In practice, many motherboard manufacturers continue providing PATA support using third-party chips.

In practice, most baseboard manufacturers still offered PATA appropriate connection types using additional chips from manufacturers such as JMicron or Marvell. When devices throttle, it doesn’t throttle at speeds the eyes can see. Which is why some laptops are able to do form factors with components that are normally not supposed to reach that size. The way I see it, you have no problem. I’m not sure if this is the case, but transfer speeds rarely reach max specs when they are running an OS at the same time.

I/O Controller Hub

I’m trying to post a screen shot from baredit, but at this point I’m still trying to figure out where to start with that program my screen does not look ich8m-fo the Lenovo screen, but that’s not unexpected.

As with any other southbridge, the ICH is used to connect and control peripheral devices.

When I opened up the info from the Intel Matrix manager I get this: As CPU speeds increased data transmission between the CPU and support chipset, the support chipset eventually emerged as a bottleneck between the processor and the motherboard. Your sequential speed shouldn’t matter.


It supports various interfaces to “low-speed” peripherals, and it supports a suite of housekeeping functions. I’m wondering if anyone else is having or has had a similar issue. If its throttling between MB and MB, the amount of time its residing in lower power mode turns out to be your final speed.

A SATA host controller was integrated. It removes all PATA support.

Another design decision was to substitute the rigid North-South axis on the motherboard with a star structure. This allows the use of flash memory on a motherboard for fast caching. The most important innovation was the support of USB 2. Meaning there’s only one explanation.

ISS to see if you’ve been bios limited to 1. With this in mind I’m trying to figure out if this is a Windows 7 problem, a Intel driver problem, a Torqx problem, or if I’m just going nuts over something silly benchmarks being what they are do not reflect real world use Support for Intel High Definition Audio was included.
