Intel Bearlake motherboards lack PS/2 mouse port

Posted on Tuesday, May 08 2007 @ 02:16:07 CEST by

The Inq confirms that (at least some of) the upcoming Intel Bearlake chipset based motherboards won't feature a PS/2 mouse port anymore.
Now, here's something of a disappointment. As a person who consistently promoted non-reliance on interrupt-poluted, CPU-hogging USB for basic user input devices, I was quite teed off by the 'backside surprise' on the boards.

While the keyboard PS/2 input was still there, no trace of the green mouse PS/2 jack - instead, two more USB ports.

And, I hear, more vendors are following suit.

Of course, there are now "zillion-dpi, million movements per second" mice for, maybe, hardcore gamers whose own hands vibrate at MHz rhythms but for us, old-fashione guys who prefer pure performance and stability/compatibility, bring back the full PS/2 keyboard/mouse combo.
