The Southbridge does not control Ethernet or Audio interfaces. Also, newer southbridges do not have built-in IDE controllers; motherboards with IDE support rely on separate controller chips for that.

There's a reason Wikipedia is not an academically-acceptable source.

lmao so true.. lmao.. my technology teacher isn't much better.. i have asked him to explain what the north bridge and south bridge do and he said "same thing anything else on a computer does.. they process" .. best answer i got was here... so what specifically do they do.. i know they control things.. but what specifically does each one do.. i know the NB works with the memory and the CPU

this is what i have been looking at:

all true I have no interest in Nvidia chipset, I hope you see the difference with Intel one. On your diagram what is missing is the Sound card chips between the speaker outlet and the south bridge , and also the network ( nic ) chips even if the sound have is own controller, it pass by the south bridge before go to the sound chips. It's a diagram for the Chipset, so they show only the main component
