Intel to start phasing out PCI bus support with some 6-series chipsets

Posted on Friday, June 11 2010 @ 21:17:07 CEST by

X-bit Labs received word that Intel will start to phase out support for the 17-year old PCI bus with its upcoming 6-series chipsets.
According to sources familiar with Intel’s plans, the company’s H67, P67 and H61 core-logic sets – which are intended for code-named Sandy-Bridge platforms with LGA1155 form-factors – will no longer support PCI bus. At the same time, business- and enterprise-oriented Q67, Q65 and B65 will retain for support of PCI bus.

Considering the fact that a lot of controllers, including audio processors and some outdated network chips, still use outdated PCI bus. As a result, mainboard makers utilizing them will have to replace the older chips with newer PCIe flavours. Moreover, those consumers, who still use products like Sound Blaster PCI audio cards will also have to get something more contemporary.
