Intel's P67, H67 and H61 chipsets will lack native PCI support
INTEL'S NEXT GENERATION of consumer desktop chipsets will lack native support for the good old PCI bus which dates back to 1993. However, most of the motherboards, if not all, that we saw at Computex back in June still featured PCI slots and it only just dawned how this can be. It turns out that the bridge chip makers are going to be making some bucks here by selling PCI Express to PCI bridge chips.
IDT issued a press release today proclaiming that MiTAC has chosen them as the supplier for their needs of PCI Express to PCI bridge chips for MiTAC's next generation of desktop PCs. IDT's chip is called the PEB383 and it supports 32-bit PCI devices operating at either 33 or 66MHz. It's available in either a QFP or QFN package at 14x14 or 10x10mm and is priced at $4.95 in quantities of 10,000.
