The article says Win 98 doesn't support SMBus devices, but some applications like Motherboard Monitor, CPUCool and Speedfan (at least older versions of them) can read SMBus data in Win 98SE (I don't know if they also support the original Win 98, because I didn't use this anymore since 2000). But maybe third-party-drivers form the motherboard manufacturer are needed. --MrBurns (talk) 05:31, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Where is the description?
There is no description of the protocol or implementation: all descriptions are how SMBus differs from I2C. That's only useful for readers who already know I2C. And even if you know I2C, then you get nebulous phrases like "the SMBus protocols are a subset of the data transfer formats defined in the I²C specifications", without explanation of which subset that is. That's about as helpful as saying that the SMBus protocols are the protocols defined for the SMBus. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 19:37, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
