The MS-6905 Master CPU Converter Board Ver 1.1B was MSI Computer Corporation’s intention to provide a Coppermine FC-PGA processor solution. Therefore, some early shipments of the MS-6905 Ver 1.1B were labeled “Coppermine Ready” on the color box. Due to a sudden change notice from Intel recently, design specifications were altered to properly support Coppermine FC-PGA processors. In order to support Coppermine FC-PGA processors, motherboards and CPU converter boards need to provide a different pull-up resistor on legacy CMOS signals. These changes require hardware modifications.
Due to Intel implementing new specification requirements for the Coppermine FC-PGA processors, the MS-6905 Master CPU Converter Board Ver 1.1B can not and does not support Coppermine processors.
MSI Computer Corporation is committed in providing a solution for the Coppermine FC-PGA processors. In this regard, the MS-6905 Master CPU Converter Board Ver 2.0 will be available soon to support Coppermine FC-PGA processors. MSI Computer Corporation understands that a number of pieces of the MS-6905 Master CPU Converter Board Ver 1.1B
were released to our customers with the color box indicating that the MS-6905 was “Coppermine Ready.” Due to the above-mentioned changes, MSI Computer Corporation is committed to rectifying this issue.
