While looking at various motherboard options I was looking at the site techreport.com and came across this note:
"We're also a little leery of how NVIDIA's acquisition of ULi will affect support for the M1575 south bridge down the road. The prospect of future driver updates may be bleak, and with Windows Vista looming, that's an important consideration. "
Can anyone clarify this, does anyone see this to be a problem and therefore for long-term future upgrades to look to NVIDIA only?
But, no, it's not a problem. The best motherboards out there w/ nVidia chipsets aren't offering a ULi southbridge solution. Thank god.
What I think the article is refering to is older ULi chipsets and boardmakers who are still incorporating ULi southbridges with nVidia northbridges because they're too farking cheap to use one solution.
