DigiTimes writes the new Graphic Media Accelerator of Intel's G965 chipset will feature a significant increase in 3D gaming and multimedia performance compared to the current Intel chipsets with the GMA 900/950 GPUs.
The G965 is one of the Broadwater chipsets supporting DDR2 800 memory that Intel has scheduled to launch in the second quarter of 2006, with the P965 and G965 series for the consumer market and the Q965 and Q963 for the business segment.

With the ICH8 southbridge, the G965 will support Microsoft’s Vista operating system and Intel’s Conroe processors, whose launch is slated for September this year.

Intel’s G965 integrated chipset will feature “Intel Clear Video Technology,” which provides improved 3D multimedia capabilities including DirectX9, Shader Model 3.0, OpenGL 1.5, Advanced De-interlacing, MPEG-2 hardware acceleration and HDMI (high definition multimedia interface) output, the sources said. The G965 series also supports WMV9B high-definition video streams and the ProcAmp API, the sources added.
Sources claim the G965 integrated chipset from Intel could threat ATI, SiS and VIA and pressure them to lower their chipset prices.
