Intel's East Fork to support dual-core Pentium D9 with ICH7-DH southbridge

Posted on Monday, July 25 2005 @ 19:21:09 CEST by

Motherboard makers claim Intel's digital home strategy, codenamed East Fork, will also support the dual-core Pentium D9 series processors. Previously it was expected they would only support the Pentium M Yonah processors.

The Pentium D9 series will be combined with the Intel 945 chipset, ICH7-DH southbridge, Ekron 10/100 and Tekoa Gigabit Ethernet chips and the Calexico 2 wireless 802.11a/b/g chip.

Originally the company planned to launch the East Fork platform in the second half of this year but it appears they delayed to launch till the first quarter of 2006. At the same time the chip giant will launch the 65nm dual-core Pentium D9 processors.

East Fork will come with Microsoft Windows Media Center Edition and motherboard makers say the Intel digital home PC platform will be priced approx. $20 higher than if they used standard Intel desktop chips for their systems, as the ICH7-DH will cost about $10 more than the ICH7 version.
