No PAT On Grantsdale Chipsets

Intel will soon replace its 865 Springdale and 875 Canterwood chipsets by Grantsdale 915 and Alderwood 925P. A year ago some clever Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers found a way to activate the memory bypass function of the 865 chipset, effectively making it the much more expensive 875P. Rob Crooke, Intel VP with the desktop platforms group, said the like will not be possible with Grantsdale and Alderwood. When asked about appropriate countermeasures, he meant that Intel had taken precautions for this not to happen. He also questioned that the modifications the mobo makers made to poor 865 were legit.
