Intel to introduce G31 in Q3 2007

Posted on Friday, Feb 23 2007 @ 21:13 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
In the third quarter of this year Intel will present the new G31 IGP chipset. Before the launch of this chipset Intel will phase out the 865G chipset in June, but they will continue to use the 946GZ, GT and 946G until the launch of the G31.
G31 is a chipset with full support for Vista Aero Glass. It will start as the Intel "Essential" line of chipsets and motherboard and later it will drop to Intel's "Value" line in Q1 2008.

The G31 supports FSB 1066 and DDR2 800 memory and it works with ICH7 or ICH7DH south bridge chips.

It will support Wolfdale dual core 45 nanometre CPUs, but not the quad core "Yorkfield". The Wolfdale launch is scheduled for the first quarter of 2008. It seems that Intel is getting very aggressive on the chipset side.
