I know the I/O HUB that is called Interface Conroller HUB was the Southbridge and anything slow connected to it.


And this ICH HUB connected to the Northbridge.

And everything fast like System RAM and CPU and AGP was connected to the Northbridge.


But befor this howw did the Boards work?


Did they have a Northbridge and Southbidge?

We just called them the chipset and it was usually either VIA or SIS and the processor /motherboard controlled the 'north bridge that didn't really have a name as they communicated directly. (pretty sure I'm right here)


You would need a pcb tech to answer you on this one.
