Intel G965 chipset to have SM3

Posted on Saturday, February 25 2006 @ 00:25:12 CET by

X-bit Labs reports Intel's upcoming 965 IGP chipset will feature support for Shader Model 3.0:
Intel G965 core-logic will support Shader Model 3.0, including pixel shaders 3.0 and vertex shaders 3.0 as well as hardware decoding of WMV9b HD high-definition video streams. In addition, the new integrated graphics core from the world’s largest chipmaker will provide HDMI output, according to slides published by HKEPC web-site. It is unclear whether the new graphics core will support HDCP encryption as well.

According to the web-site, the first A0 samples of the Intel G965 graphics and memory controller hub (GMCH) have been out and their testing is complete. At this point Intel is reportedly testing the B0 samples of the chipsets, whereas the final C0 or C1 samples will be out in 14th – 18th week (May, 2006). The availability of the Intel G965 chipset is expected in the third quarter of the year.
The Intel G965 GMCH will be the second chipset to feature Shader Model 3.0 support. Last year NVIDIA unveiled the first one, with its GeForce 6100 and 6150 solutions for the AMD platform.
