i845G  + i845D - i845G + i845D
Mon, November 19 2001 | 7:04PM | PermaLink Feedback?
With integrated chipsets from Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) and VIA Technologies entering volume production, Intel has informed motherboard makers that it will introduce its integrated 845G (codenamed Brookdale-G) in April 2002 and for the first time unveiled the technical version of its latest integrated chipset. Intel originally planned to launch the 845G in the third quarter of 2002, targeting the US$1,000-1,499 mainstream systems market. However, due to the competition and demand from clients, Intel decided to roll out the products earlier. Based on Intel’s timetable, the company expects to begin delivering the mass production version chipsets in February. Intel has similarly moved up the launch of its DDR SDRAM-based 845B-step (845D) due to market competition and customer demand. Given that 845B-step boards basically require only some upgrades from the 845 products, almost all the motherboard manufacturers have already finished related designs. Sources indicated that 845B-step boards are expected to enter mass production this month, but Intel has requested companies to not deliver products until mid-December. Previously, Intel was said to be thinking about quoting the 845B-step at the same price as 845 chipset, leading board makers to worry about the possibility of unclear product positioning. However, according to sources, Intel has decided to change the strategy and set the price of the 845 slightly lower than the 845B-step, allowing the PC133 SDRAM-based 845 chipset to target the US$800-999 system market. Despite the change of pricing strategy, Intel has also decided to gradually phase out the 845 chipsets and turn to the DDR-compliant 845B-step, sources indicated.
