DailyTech has some more info about the G965 chipset which will feature Intel's next-generation Windows Vista capable graphics core.
The graphics core will be integrated in the upcoming G965 chipset that is part of the 96x family. The roadmap shows the graphics core will be Microsoft Windows Vista Premium compatible with support for Aero Glass.

According to Microsoft’s Vista requirements, a DirectX 9 class graphics processor with support for hardware pixel shader 2.0 and 32 bits per pixel is required for Vista Premium for Aero Glass windows. Intel's G965 is currently slated to launch in August 2006, approximately a month after the launch of the other 965 chipsets. This delay has in part been attributed to Microsoft's unfirm specifications at the time G965 was being spun.
