82855PM stepping B1 - who has it?
Under Linux, I can do:
setpci -d 8086:3340 08.b
(page 6), this means I have the "A3" "Stepping" (and
cannot get 333 MHz memory performance).
Does anyone out there get, as page 6 indicates, "21"
(or higher) which would indicate the B1 stepping (or
I know several other people with other Dell laptops
(i.e. Inspiron 8600) which uses the 82855PM chipset.
and lspci on all of them, even though they are less
than 6 months old, have the rev "03"
Does anyone know how to get this detail chipset
revision info under windows? (To facilitate
communications with windows people:)
Note: I've seen a post from a year ago on another
board that someone though that the processor "Stepping
Mask" that the Sandra software reports under CPU and
BIOS info was the revision of the chipset; I believe
this is completely incorrect; it's the stepping mask
for the processor (which may just happen to look like
a valid revision for the chipset)
