    Minor, annoying change in last update


    Hi, this is a small perhaps silly issue, but one that's really bugging me.

    It is about the internet connectivity icon on the taskbar.

    Before the last update, this icon was the standard wifi icon, which showed a yellow warning if wifi was on but unable to connect, and a red warning if wifi was off.

    This was a very useful distinction - wifi on but unconnected vs. wifi off.

    Now, after the last update, the icon has changed to a globe. The globe is exactly the same whether wifi is on and unconnected, or if it is off.

    IT WASN'T BROKEN - why the change??

    Why have they made it LESS informative??

    How do I get my old icon back??

    :)

    Minor suggestion for Check for updates

    No, I know that. Exactly where I suggest this to be changed, please note.
    Sorry for not being clear.

    The Check for updates small window currently does not show what I ask to be added - program version. Please consider adding this. Many other programs have this, so I suggest for GPU-Z to have it too.

The updated chips will start selling on August 22nd, featuring the following changes:
    • New SSpec and MM numbers for the converting products
    • CPUID will change from 0x10677 to 0x1067A
    • Package change to Halide free package
    Apart from that, the new stepping CPUs will not include any other changes. Of course, like most new stepping parts a BIOS update will be needed.

    Intel E5200 Gets Updated, R0 Stepping Coming Up

    Intel's Pentium Dual-Core E5200 processor is getting on course for a specifications update. The chip will feature in a new, improved Wolfdale-2M core, spec'd out as the R0 stepping, from its current M0 stepping. The new stepping is intended to add new instructions, power-management features, and bring about changes in the chip-package. A short list of known changes is as follows:
    • CPUID changed from 10677 to 1067A
    • Power State Indicator (PSI) support with Intel 4 series chipsets
    • New instructions - XSAVE and XRSTOR
    • New S-spec and MM numbers
    • New halide-free chip package
    Due to the changed CPUID, users may require BIOS updates to detect the CPU. According to the company, E5200 R0 should be out by April 13.
