Just correcting myself. The last Intel chipset to natively support PCI off the ICH was the Q77.(Z97 still supports regular PCI slots off the ICH).
Oh well. I'm not really up on the hardware, but it makes sense. I wonder how long PCIe will remain compatible.Just correcting myself. The last Intel chipset to natively support PCI off the ICH was the Q77.
The Intel 80-series dropped native support for PCI slots on the ICH, of which motherboard manufactures adopted using PCIe-PCI bridges to provide PCI slots on the motherboard. The most common PCIe-PCI bridges in use seem to be from IDT and TI.
