Intel G965 chipset troubled?

Posted on Thursday, August 03 2006 @ 02:46:46 CEST by

The Inq heard the Intel G965 chipset still has lots of problems.
The chip still is nowhere to be found, but luckily, early word from multiple sources is not encouraging.

It seems the last and more common stepping, C1, is a mess, with image corruption problems on top of the previously mentioned speed problems.

The current stepping, C2, is reported to put up the images more or less correctly, let's be fair, more correctly, but the speed problem seems pretty well fatal.

We are hearing that the chipset is actually slower than its predecessor, Lakeport/i945G. Much slower. Things get brighter in heavily shader intensive situations, but there is a problem there as well. We are told that if you go above 800*600, well, things approximate a slideshow, but with the added shader firepower, it is a very attractive slideshow.

The chipset's performance was described to me quite succinctly by one major OEM as 'it sucks'.
