[coreboot] AMD northbridge information on the wiki
lists at dolphinling.net
Thu Apr 15 10:09:07 CEST 2010
I noticed the wiki supported chipsets page has listed under the southbrigde
section "AMD RS690" and "AMD RS780/RS785?". But RS690 and RS780 are
northbridges, not southbridges, and there is no RS785.
Sorted by codename, the chipsets I can find are*
Codename Product Name Documentation?

RS880 AMD 785G chipset
* Cobbled together from wikipedia and amd documentation
As far as I can tell (though I haven't looked heavily), AMD northbridges are the
only ones to use separate code/product names. Since the product names are likely
more well-known, I suggest the following:
Move "RS690" to northbridges, and rename it to "690G/V, M690/E/V/T"
Move "RS780/RS785?" to northbridges, and rename it to "780E/G/V, 790GX, M770,
Now, that assumes that support for these actually exists. I only see one
motherboard on the supported motherboards page that uses a 690G, and none that
uses a 700-series chipset. Does anyone know the actual status?
And for all the 700-series without documentation, should they be in the list for
clarity, as either WIP or NO with a footnote saying they're similar but
documentation hasn't been released?
