I have checked with Intel® Workstation Board WX58BP :

Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
Just press ENTER to continue:

Driver `to-be-written':
* Bus `SMBus I801 adapter at 2000'
Busdriver `i2c_i801', I2C address 0x2e
Chip `Andigilog aSC7621' (confidence: 5)

Driver `coretemp':
* Chip `Intel Core family thermal sensor' (confidence: 9)

Note: there is no driver for Andigilog aSC7621 yet.
Check for updates.

Do you want to overwrite /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors? (YES/no): YES
Starting lm_sensors: loading module coretemp [ OK ]
Unloading i2c-dev... OK

You can also check with other intel motherboards.

These motherboards are build in Taiwan, China. I have no idea that how
they are getting these chips but you can see them in your latest Intel
motherboards ;-)
