Is there a big difference between the KTa and the KT chipsets? This improvement in the memory controller Tom’s Hardware calls it the “industry’s fastest DDR memory controller” is the major change in the KTA over the KT, and takes care of the major weakness in the original design.
This enables motherboard makers to switch production to the KTA chipset without scrapping already-produced motherboard printed circuit boards, and it has a second benefit:
