First Look At Brookdale - Intel's Upcoming 845 Chipset

THG's I845 Test Platform, Continued

The south bridge is surprisingly marked with 'secret', although it represents the well-known ICH2-chip that we can already find on i850 boards. It's revision level was '12', while current ICH2's come with revision level '02'. Still, the features were identical to those known from i850-boards. The shortness of time for this review kept me from digging into the differences between the two ICH2-revisions.

The chipset-inf software was provided, so that the installation under Windows 9x and Windows 2000 was a piece of cake. WCPUID 3.0b is not yet able to recognize the chipset.
