Intel will launch six new "3" chipset family chipsets this year, which won't support the old NetBurst processors anymore.
Intel plans to introduce 6 new chipsets in 2007, all belongs to “3” chipset family, according to Intel’s latest plan. The new chipsets include the mainstream P35, entry-level integrated chipset G33, enthusiast top notch chipset X38, integrated chipset G35 for mainstream, entry-level business-oriented chipset Q33 and business-oriented chipset Q35. All of them support Core 2 Duo processors, including the upcoming 1333MHz FSB E6050 family, on a mean while they also support entry-level dual-core Pentium E 2000 family and single-core Celeron 400 family.

For the Kenstfield’s Core 2 Quad products, only P35, G35 and X38 would support for quad-core processor. On the other hand, X38 is the only which support for Core 2 Extreme products among the 6 new chipsets. The Taiwan enterprisers pointed out that, though the existing P965 supports the Extreme products, it is only because Intel has no new high-end chipset released recently for gamers and some of the specifications of 975X are even outdated, the solution is only an alternative. However, the 3 family would all support the next-generation 45nm products, including 45nm quad-core Yorkfield and dual-core Wolfdale.
