DigiTimes writes Intel G965 based motherboards volume shipments have been delayed again because of a problem with chipset drivers.
According to the sources, motherboard makers planned that G965-based models may begin hitting the market last month, being informed by Intel that the G965 chipset will be ready for volume shipments from the middle of August with two versions of driver sets, 14.24 and 14.25. However, since neither version came out with Shader Model 3.0 support, the makers were forced to revise their plans, the sources explained.

Intel is now expected to update drivers for the G965 chipset every six months, enabling more features and improving its graphics performance, according to the sources. The chipmaker said at its website that the G965 chipset incorporates the GMA X3000 graphics core to provide 3D enhancements, including Shader Model 3.0 support.
