Re: [REQ] Chipset - ASMedia, Etron, intel, NEC-Renesas USB3 drivers

Both will be added to DriverPack Chipset 11.05 (in work)

Re: [REQ] Chipset - ASMedia, Etron, intel, NEC-Renesas USB3 drivers

Alas, i was not able to find an OEM D/L link for NEC-Renesas USB3, however; station-drivers has the latest  http://www.station-drivers.com/page/nec.htm

Re: [REQ] Chipset - ASMedia, Etron, intel, NEC-Renesas USB3 drivers

I found the Renesas USB3 drivers at Intel.

Re: [REQ] Chipset - ASMedia, Etron, intel, NEC-Renesas USB3 drivers

Try that link again, Mr. Smartepants.  NEC-Renesas USB3 drivers updated to v2.1.16 WHQL!  http://downloadmirror.intel.com/19880/e … NEC_PV.exe big_smile

Re: [REQ] Chipset - ASMedia, Etron, intel, NEC-Renesas USB3 drivers

Yup, got it in my local copy of DriverPack Chipset 11051

Re: [REQ] Chipset - ASMedia, Etron, intel, NEC-Renesas USB3 drivers

Since Intel has been hosting the latest NEC/Renesas USB3 packages, i won't alert you to them, unless OEM-sourced elsewhere.

Re: [REQ] Chipset - ASMedia, Etron, intel, NEC-Renesas USB3 drivers

No biggie.  I don't catch everything. wink

Re: [REQ] Chipset - ASMedia, Etron, intel, NEC-Renesas USB3 drivers

DriverPack Chipset 12.06 now online.

Re: [REQ] Chipset - ASMedia, Etron, intel, NEC-Renesas USB3 drivers

Just a head's up concerning the NEC/Renesas USB3.0 xHCI drivers.
  There are two separate packages for two controller families, the uPD720200(A)
   and the uPD720701/uPD720202 controllers. (ah crud, you've already made this distinction, Type10T indeed)
The latest driver for the uPD720200(a) series is 2.1.36.0, utilizing the following HWID's:

%NUSB3XHC.DeviceDesc% = NUSB3XHC, PCI\VEN_1033&DEV_0194&REV_03
%NUSB3XHC.DeviceDesc% = NUSB3XHC, PCI\VEN_1033&DEV_0194&REV_04

The latest driver for the uPD720201, 2 series is 3.0.20.0, utilizing the following HWID's:

%PCI\VEN_1912&DEV_0014&REV_01.DeviceDesc% = RUSB3XHC, PCI\VEN_1912&DEV_0014&REV_01
%PCI\VEN_1912&DEV_0014&REV_02.DeviceDesc% = RUSB3XHC, PCI\VEN_1912&DEV_0014&REV_02
%PCI\VEN_1912&DEV_0014&REV_03.DeviceDesc% = RUSB3XHC, PCI\VEN_1912&DEV_0014&REV_03
%PCI\VEN_1912&DEV_0015&REV_01.DeviceDesc% = RUSB3XHC, PCI\VEN_1912&DEV_0015&REV_01
%PCI\VEN_1912&DEV_0015&REV_02.DeviceDesc% = RUSB3XHC, PCI\VEN_1912&DEV_0015&REV_02

The intel USB3.0 drivers use the following HWID's:

%IUsb3XhcDeviceDesc01% = IUsb3XhcModel, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E31&REV_00 
%IUsb3XhcDeviceDesc01% = IUsb3XhcModel, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E31&REV_01 
%IUsb3XhcDeviceDesc01% = IUsb3XhcModel, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E31&REV_02 
%IUsb3XhcDeviceDesc01% = IUsb3XhcModel, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E31&REV_03 
%IUsb3XhcDeviceDesc01% = IUsb3XhcModel, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E31&REV_04 

Edit:  There is no xp or vista support for intel's controllers though.
http://communities.intel.com/message/164813  sad

I have been largely unsuccessful at finding any OEM links.
  (other than the site for the latest intel xHCI driver, which you know)

Included here are sunix & lycom's product download pages to show that they are indeed either an OEM, VAR, or reseller.

Extraction for these drivers is similar to the Etron driver (see above), just check your %temp% folder for full output.

"Precautions against counterfeit semiconductor chips

November 14, 2011

Renesas has recently confirmed some counterfeit chips that have very similar appearances to the company's products. These counterfeits are exquisitely made so it is very difficult to discriminate them by appearance. For instance, we discovered counterfeits in which mold surface, marks, or the packages had close resemblances to that of Renesas' genuine products.

Some of these counterfeits have very poor quality and functionality, and may cause breakdowns or malfunctions if used in your systems or applications.

The counterfeits have not been distributed through Renesas' official sales channels and we would like our customers to purchase Renesas products through our official sales channels. Please note that Renesas holds no responsibilities for any malfunctions or damages caused by using counterfeit products."

Re: [REQ] Chipset - ASMedia, Etron, intel, NEC-Renesas USB3 drivers

intel xHCI USB 3.0 Host Controller/Hub

For those looking for Windows 8 support, other than the in-built "0100" driver (referenced from http://communities.intel.com/message/171581#171581), thusfar you may be in the same boat as 2K, XP, W2k3, & Vista licensees; that is stuck with USB 2.0 speeds.  sad

"The reason you aren't finding any Intel drivers, is because they aren't providing driver support for Windows 8. Microsoft has taken over the task of writing drivers for USB 3.0 chipsets. This obviously was a mistake on their part. Not because they took over responsibility, but because they didn't handle it properly."

There are additional consequences:

And a workaround (seemingly lacking newer PM features for 8) by ekko has emerged:

What of the possibility of a similar alternate .Inf for Vista support, possibly even W2k3 or XP?
What matter of the status of WHQL on the update .Inf file (in addition to the original), so long as the .Sys files are Digitally Signed?  hmm



PS:

"one important tidbit concerning Driver Signing.  If it's just a modded .Inf that is at issue:"

That is, except for removable devices, likely.

The interesting part is the versioning numerology for Windows in the .Infs (6.2.1 & 6.1.1).
Will we see "Windows 7 Blue" in addition to the cold & sullen "Windows 8 Blue"?


They desperately need Chris Isaak to sell these OS's with his timeless "Blue Moon"!
"Yola" is not optional.  Her character has to be involved.
