TRENDING NOW: Scientists invent neural lace, can connect your brain to a computer


Oops! news post from TweakTown's online news computing and technology content pages

The Tech Report have a story running saying that VIA's south bridge chips didn't include a PCI extension called bus parking that Intel implemented in its post-BX series of chipsets. Many PCI card makers simply assumed bus parking would be available to them, and when it wasn't, all heck broke loose-snap, crackle, pop on your SoundBlaster.


This was all discovered from a VIA rep who spoke directly to the press about the problem, and of course, it found its way on the Internet as it always does.


I'm aware the problem has been known for months now, but it's too late for consumers who already have motherboards which have been using VIA southbrides for the past 24 months or so.
