We following Intel’s recommendation to use LPC 1.8V and implement LPC 1.8V to 3.3V level shifter for better stability of LPC 3.3V under embedded use conditions for our motherboard based on Intel® Pentium® quad-core processor N3710.

We would like to have more details about this changes affect, then we can convert customer to use latest modified LPC boards.
