Digitimes reports of two new chipsets from Intel which are planned to be released in August. The 848P is for the value-line end-user market, and the 865GV is for the OEM customers. Not really that interesting for us eh?
Intel’s 848P will share the same core and technologies as the existing 865P chipset, and only minor revisions will be needed to lower the 865P’s memory bandwidth from dual-channel to single-channel and increase its FSB speed to 800Mhz.
The 865GV will share the same specifications as the 848P but integrate Intel’s onboard graphics support and not support add-on graphics cards. It will target the value-line, business workstation market.
The 848P will be priced at US$31, not the US$20 rumored earlier, and only US$1 below the 865P’s price of US$32. The 865GV will cost motherboard manufacturers US$34 per unit, well below the US$40 price tag for the 865G.
