  Chipset - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A chipset is a group of integrated circuits ("chips") that are designed to work together, and are usually marketed as a single product.
In computing, the term chipset is commonly used to refer to the specialized motherboard chips on a computer or expansion card.
The term "chipset" was also widely used in the 1980s and 1990s for the custom audio and graphics chips in home computers, games consoles and arcade game hardware of the time.

 The PC Technology Guide
A chipset or "PCIset" is a group of microcircuits that orchestrate the flow of data to and from key components of a PC.
The chipset also controls data flow to and from hard disks, and other devices connected to the IDE channels.
However, the new PCI chipsets" potential performance improvements will only be realised when used in conjunction with BIOSes capable of taking full advantage of the new technologies on offer.

 What does your Chipset actually do?
Because of the amount of data that goes through the chipset it is important that the chipset is up to speed.
A slow chipset can be as damaging to your systems overall speed as a slow CPU or slow memory.
The chipset does not alter the speed of the transmission it is 66Mhz (AGP standard).

The chips in the chipset are referred to as bridges, because they bridge the components together and ensure that the data flow is directed to the proper place.
The better chipsets are those that can handle data the fastest and most efficiently.

 BlueSmoke - Review : Intel 845G Chipset
The older Celeron was accompanied by the i810 chipset, which quite frankly featured sub-par performance compared to the i815 or even the old faithful 440BX.
By far, that title belongs to the cores that are integrated into chipsets, which is why both ATI and nVIDIA are scrambling to the market with their respective integrated chipset solutions.
Both chipsets are duplicates of the 845E, except that the 845G features Intel's integrated Extreme Graphics while the 845GL is a crippled 845G, lacking an AGP slot and support for the new quad-pumped 533MHz FSB.

 SiS748 Chipset Review
There was just one difference between the chipsets: the 733 didn't have the DDR SDRAM support, though the actual difference is in the marking.
I can't say these chipsets were popular (I don't remember any boards based on the 733), but there were some solutions even from Chaintech, not to mention SiS partner ECS.
The chipset is based on the classical dual-bridge scheme.

 SiS735 - a chipset with DDR SDRAM support for SocketA systems
The SiS chipset differs from other chipsets, as you know, in an untraditional approach: a north and a south bridges are combined in one chip.
On the other hand, the boards based on the chipsets with SDRAM support were tested at the minimal timings, because it is not difficult to find PC133 memory working with the minimal timings, and as for the DDR, today one can get only CAS2.5 modules impossible to overclock or without a possibility to decrease latencies.
The chipsets with the SDRAM memory are working at the maximum performance level they are capable of, and the DDR ones have still some reserve.

 Chipsets Today and Tomorrow -- Feature by ExtremeTech
Traditionally, chipset companies have been based out of Taiwan, and during the late 80's there were about a dozen separate chipset manufacturers.
The 430 LX "Mercury" chipset was the first official chipset from Intel, and it was quickly snapped up by OEMs all over the world.
None of the three remaining chipset companies had the R&D advantages Intel did, and even if they pooled their resources they could not touch what Intel could do in terms of money.

 Identifying Your Modem Chipset
Once you know the chipset, you are able to determine what commands are used to control the modem; and, how you go about upgrading the modem without needing to find your specific brand and model.
In addition, some modem vendors - including Cirrus - have used the TI chipset in their own design with independent (non 3Com/USR) firmware resulting in different performance and AT command set.
You may also get clues as to who made your modem - and in turn what kind it might be - by checking the FCC ID # and entering it on my Who Made My Modem page.

 One2surf - Product Labs - Reviews November 2000 - Inside the new AMD-760 Chipset
The AMD-760 chipset has additional features which clearly make it stand out from the crowd; Ultra-DMA 100 support with downward compatibility for all existing Ultra-DMA 33/66 devices such as CD-ROMs, DVD-ROM, with total support for high-bandwidth Ultra-DMA 100 devices allowing peak transfer rates, without the normal bottleneck found in older devices.
Increasing the FSB was a natural progression once the new DDR support was included, along with 4x AGP and Ultra-DMA 100 the obvious bottlenecks have been removed for a top-notch performance based platform.
We analysis the new DDR SDRAM and the AMD-760 chipset combination to establish, whether this will be the platform for 2001.

 Your PC's Second Most Important Silicon: The Chipset
One manufacturer, Nvidia Corp., prefers the term "platform processor" to "chipset." It's marketing jargon that makes sense, in that a chipset determines a motherboard's and hence computer's capabilities -- everything from what kinds of peripherals you can plug into it to what kinds of CPU and memory it can use.
A chipset's functions are divided into two groups, which are usually handled by two chips -- the Northbridge and Southbridge, which you can think of as "inner" and "outer" or adjacent to the CPU and peripherals, respectively.
It also has obvious disadvantages, such as the need to create a totally new chipset design just to add one new Southbridge feature (upgrading from USB 1.1 to USB 2.0 support, for instance).
