Written by Fuad Abazovic

Hanksville-D


Intel has come up with one more new chip, that you will have to buy in order to have the best Gigabit LAN for your 5 Series chipset.

The new small chip is called Hanksville-D and primarily this chip will offer 10/100/1000 GbE connection, but at the same time it enables some features such as vPro, Intel remote PC assistant and remote wake technologies.

The chip is also called 82578 GbE and it won’t be compatible with any previous ICHx designs, which means it won’t work with any other chipsets. This is a clear message from Intel that if you use someone else’s Gigabit LAN you won’t get the vPro certification.
