Thanks Bill for your confirmation!!! ;)
: No - you have the right idea. "Enhanced" is your key to knowing. ;-)
: : Thx for your reply Bill,
: : Indeed this gives you an good ID!
: : However some early motherboards are still not using this new controller onboard.
: : I found out so far that mostly when an USB2.0 controller is present, the device manager is indicating "Enhanced USB Controller"
: : and not anymore "Universal USB Controller" as usually used for 1.1 controller. I am not sure if this is always the case, and was wondering if there was not a "smart tool" telling you that your PC is supporting USB 2.0 Highspeed
: : : USB 2.0 controllers weren't installed in motherboards until this year, heurtin. If the PC is older than that, it's USB 1.1.
: : : If you had USB 2.0, you would know it. It would show as an unknown device in Device Manager.
: : : Bill
: : : : I am wondering if there is a tool, log... which can differenciate wether the chipset is equiped with an USB 2.0 controller, and not an USB 1.1 controller.
: : : : Of course it might be indicated on the PC tower or desktop itself, but stickers tend to disapear...
: : : : Any ID?
