Intel to launch P/G45 chipsets in Q2

Written by test

Should launch in April or May

With the delay of the X48 chipset and the decision to delay some of its desktop CPU due to the weak performance of AMD's Phenom range, it looks like Intel might be planning to launch these CPUs alongside the P45 and G45 chipsets sometime in April or May this year, but it might be sooner rather than later.

The biggest advantage we're seeing with the P45 chipset over the current P35 chipset is the fact that it supports dual x8 PCIe slots; as with the P35 you're limited to a x16 and a x4 solution if you want to run CrossFire.

The G45 is an interesting beast, as it has an upgraded graphics engine with DX10 support, full HD video decoding and built-in support for HDMI with HDCP. There is, of course, the cut down G43 model as well, and we've even heard rumors of a simpler model than this, but it hasn't been verified as yet.

Our current bet is on an April launch date, as by the end of the year, we're looking at new sockets, processors and chipsets all together and Intel wants some time to sell their new platform before they introduce their new lineup of products.
