Intel Chipset Refresh: P35 and G33 Now, X38 and G35 Later - Intel Chipset Refresh: P35 and G33 Now, X38 and G35 Later

At Computex this year, coming up in only a couple short weeks, Intel will be officially announcing a new line of chipsets known around the web as 'Bearlake' but will now be called the X3x series - including the P35 and G33 we are discussing today.

"Before we get ahead of ourselves, let's quickly look at what the new chipsets announced today offer the end user. First up, the P35, which will find its way into numerous enthusiast level motherboards. Supporting both current 1066 MHz Core 2 processors as well as the upcoming 1333 MHz bus processors, the front-side bus on the P35 will scale up to 10.6 GB/s of bandwidth. The north bridge still only supports a single x16 PCIe connection but does get a significant upgrade in the memory department.

The P35 will support BOTH the current DDR2-800 memory standard as well as support for new DDR3-1066 memory. DDR3 memory still operates at a double data rate, transfering data at both the rising and falling of the clock speed, but DDR3 is specified to scale up to 1600 MHz in the years to come. While current timings we are seeing on our DDR3 samples include CAS latency numbers of 7, the possibility is there for those to come down (as we'd expect from guys like Corsair and OCZ) and Intel even mentions the DDR3 memory could go as high as 2133 MHz. DDR3-1333 speeds are not OFFICIALLY supported but the boards we have seen here for testing are working with it fine.
Other changes on the ICH9 south bridge include new Quiet System Technology and even Intel Turbo Memory as optional features the motherboard vendors can implement. The Quiet System option obviously allows the motherboard to run cooler and thus with less (if any) active cooling while the Turbo Memory feature will allow boards to have on-board flash memory for faster boot times, etc."
