Looking at the actual chip would still be useful sometimes, for instance
to spot datasheet ID/rev errors (e.g. when the chip says it's a
different chip than what the IDs tell you).

As for datasheets:


Probably lots more which I missed right now (just google for the Super I/O
name, that should find you datasheets for almost all of them).
Hm, maybe we should add a "Datasheets" wiki page with links?
