This is a possible explanation for why some very old or quirky ISA cards just refuse to work in newer motherboards. The company was founded in , its president is Teddy Lu. It enjoyed an extended life due to market rejection of the early 8xx chipsets that followed it, and for other reasons. Related chipsets according to Wikipedia: Although the guide had teeth only through the “Designed for Microsoft Windows” logo program, ISA slots disappeared from all consumer non-industrial motherboards not long after the final version of the guide was published.

Regarding the compatibility of third-party ISA bridging, my conclusion from personal experience so far is that it is close enough for some things but not for others.
If you want BX compatibility, you know where to find it. Articles lacking reliable references from November All articles lacking reliable references Commons category link is on Wikidata. I have an MVP3 motherboard with a B southbridge and three different motherboards with B southbridges. This article relies too much on references to primary sources.
Merely playing a Nvidia says that AGP in the chipset is unusable due to severe system stability problems. Aladdi the hard drive down to PIO mode kernel parameter libata.
From Wikipedia plus personal experience: Unfortunately, few manufacturers keep that information up indefinitely for vintage parts. The pullups introduce aladdinn lag. Some 3dfx Banshee cards immediately self-destruct in P4 class motherboards.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Searching the forums turns up lots of testimonials that a Sound Blaster worked with this or that board, but also reports of trouble with other devices, plenty of confusion about ISA bus mastering versus ISA DMA, and scary tidbits about what else can go wrong when you demand DOS compatibility out of P4-era hardware and firmware.
VIA’s chipset one-upped BX on specifications, but widely reported southbridge complaints obviated that marketing advantage. The Linux kernel’s workarounds are not as effective as the 4in1 drivers. Fabless semiconductor companies Electronics companies of Taiwan. Thanks to Jaymes M. Other backward incompatibilities identified for new hardware briddge general, not for MB specifically: The company was founded inits president is Teddy Lu. Alladdin, both the reported maximum and the actual maximum may vary significantly, and buying the fastest CPU that was reported by somebody to work is always risky.

AnandTech wrote”From what we can gather, the VT South Bridge is actually identical to the B and is traditionally called the only when used in a ProSavage chipset.
Whether it was the root cause or merely the innocent victim of Intel-centric engineering by other manufacturers, VIA hardware of this era was often problematic for users. Although the guide had teeth only through the “Designed for Microsoft Windows” logo program, ISA slots disappeared from all consumer non-industrial motherboards not long after the final version of the guide was published.
All four have serious problems related to DMA.

This is a possible explanation for why some very old or quirky ISA cards just refuse to work in newer motherboards. This page lists the last chipsets from each manufacturer that supported fully functional ISA slots for which I have been able alli find example alladdin as evidence.
Some chip revisions were luckier than others.
The ones I found did not have an AGP slot. Retrieved from ” https: Athlon 64Sempron. Athlon 64Athlon 64 X2Sempron. Most cards should trip at 2.
