Intel leaves high-end chipset market to ATI and NVIDIA

Posted on Wednesday, June 28 2006 @ 00:43:53 CEST by

Intel won't release any chipsets for high-performance gaming PCs and workstations until mid-2007. This will leave this market or companies like ATI and NVIDIA.
Intel will not leave the chipset market, it will continue to produce entry-level, mainstream, performance-mainstream and high-performance chipsets for different types of computers, as there are many system builders and end-users who prefer to have an Intel processor and an Intel core-logic inside. Those enthusiasts, who would like to have extreme performance, however, are likely to chose third-party chipsets, as Intel’s 975X lacks certain gaming-oriented functionality, such as support for 32 PCI Express lanes and PC2-6400 memory. Intel will reportedly offer a core-logic oriented on games by the end of the second quarter 2007, which means that the company does not have plans to leave the high-performance chipsets market in general.
