Poll: What chipset is your NC10 using?
Note: Don’t just look in the manual, run a program like CPU-Z, Sisoft Sandra or similar to check.December 3, 2008 at 1:34 pm #173536rmcgandaraMember
ME for me…. in a brief, are there big differences between the two?December 3, 2008 at 2:52 pm #173539motherMember
GSE is designed for Atom I think and newer. Better power management?December 5, 2008 at 11:38 am #173543
Ok, this is quite interesting. It seems some of you have the GSE-chipset. I’m wondering if this is somehow country specific. If you are sure that you really do have the GSE-chipset, what country was it bought in/from? I have the UK-version and I have the GME-chipset.December 5, 2008 at 11:53 am #173551barney91Member
Interesting considering its the NC11 which will use the GSE… meaning if some outgoing models have GSE, there is no difference apart from VistaDecember 5, 2008 at 1:27 pm #173544
Well, there is some contradiction in this info. The Samsung NC10 manual clearly says it should have the 945GSE but mine certainly has the 945GME chipset. Could the people who voted that they have the 945GSE please tell how you checked this and what country that NC10 is bought?
EDIT: After I really want to know what chipset is used I actually opened up my NC10, there is no info whatsoever printed on the mainboards chip. Before I have run programs like Sisoft Sandra and CPU-Z to detect the mainboard, bot report 945GME. After looking for another program that is newer and since I suspect that Sandra and CPU-Z might report incorrectly I download HWinfo:
Now, the plot tightens, this program suggest that my NC10 does have the 945GSE chipset….
Does anyone else have some suggestions of a newly updated program that can detect the computers hardware except for HWinfo?December 5, 2008 at 2:56 pm #173537lozza69erMember
Just checked mine and it is i945GME. UK version, bought from play.com.December 5, 2008 at 3:02 pm #173540BeckyMember
I’m using a UK-bought model and CPU-Z identifies it as a GME. Just run HWiNFO32, and this says GSE.December 5, 2008 at 3:11 pm #173538lozza69erMember
Actually come to think of it, when i had my advent 4211 and was part of the MSI Wind forum. Exactly the same thing was happening, different chipsets were showing with the different programs used.
So basically the NC10’s are probably all using 945GSE, just programs are getting confused and stating a different chipset.December 5, 2008 at 3:55 pm #173557JCKMember
My UK PC-World NC-10 which came on Wednesday , is also a 945GSE using HWiNFO32December 6, 2008 at 4:08 pm #173553littleguyMember
Doesn’t Intel make a utility to check this?December 6, 2008 at 8:10 pm #173541megachiropMember
US Blue NC10 from Amazon.com
HWiNFO32: 945GSEDecember 6, 2008 at 8:10 pm #173542megachiropMember

Yes. Just tried it and it doesn’t recognize the chipset! *sigh*

hmmm, I had a post that disappeared. Yes, the intel one can’t verfiy it, which probably means it’s the 945GSE which is newer.
white NC10 US
