Some sour news for owners of nForce 2 based PCs. It appears NVIDIA has no intent to further support the once dominating much loved chipset. You wouldnt mind so much if it wasnt for Vista taking over the reigns next year, but without some fresh fully functional drivers for the OS you'll be in a bit of trouble.
Dont be too concerned though, apparently some determined clever lads out there are finding ways around it already.
SOME OF you might remember the good old Nforce 2 chipsets from Nvidia. That was before the SLI madness times. Many of you may still grieve for Soundstorm Industries' only Dolby Digital Live motherboard at the time.
Well Nvidia decided to say the final good bye to this chipset as it doesn't want to develop the Vista drivers for it. A colleague tried to install Vista RC2 on an Nforce 2 Ultra400 chipset but the software failed to install SMBuss drivers. Hie query to customer support brouht the following reply:
