Sorry, I was not clear.  Yes, the new chipsets are not supported.  I
meant eventually they will stop even manufacturing the older chipsets
that are supported and the video card manufacturers will stop making
boards based on the old chipsets.  The only way to get them will be as
used parts, if they are still around and still function.
