    Is the i945G and i94GC the same chipset?



      I am running a Compaq PC that came with Vista pre installed. I looked at my product specifications and noticed that my computer comes with the Intel 945GC chipset, but I receive updates for the Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset Family via Windows Update. Which chipset is installed on my computer then, the Intel 945G or 945GC?


      I was also reading the Windows Team Blog on the Microsoft website and saw a wide variety of examples of Display drivers in Vista tested for Windows 7. I noticed that the i945G Display chipset was tested but I did not see the i945GC anywhere on the list. I plan to buy Windows 7 when it released later this year, but I wanted to make sure, are two chipsets are the same thing and the same family?
