Grantsdale og Alderwood virker ikke med Windows 9x/me
De to seneste workstation chipset fra Intel: Grantsdale og Alderwood virker ikke med Microsoft Windows 9x og Me.
S? hvis du vil have PCI-Express og endnu ikke har Windows 2000 eller XP, s? m? du have tegnedrengen frem.
Intel said it won't have any drivers for future Grantsdale/Alderwood chipsets. I think it's about time to use its commercial names, 925P and 915P for discrete and 915G for the one with integrated graphics.
No matter whether you call them by their pet names or you use their marchitectural names, neither of these two platforms will have drivers for Windows 98 or ME. Intel simply decided to pull the plug as those operating systems are quite old now.
It comes as a surprise as even Microsoft decided to offer more support for Windows Millennium edition, also known as ME, due to delays on the Longhorn project.
So Longhorn is scheduled for late 2005/2006 and with new Intel PCI Express 925 and 915 chipsets you will be stuck with Windows 2000 and XP only.
