NFI has some more info about the speculative Intel Nforce project from NVIDIA. They have heard that NVIDIA does have a Pentium 4 licence (just like ATI has), and that the first Intel Nforce will be probably called Nforce 5. Much information is not avaible, except that it will support DDR2 memory. The Inquirer however has snapped up some more information from the Chinese GZeasy :

At, it's suggested that Nforce 5 will not only support DDR 2, but may well be associated with the Socket T chips Intel anticipates for next year.

The rumours there are that Nforce 5 will support PCI Express, 800/1066MHz front side buses, the NV3X graphics core, four Serial ATA ports, 802.11b wireless, and 7.1 surround sound.

The first chipsets with PCI Express from Intel are expected for Q2 2004 (the Grantsdale chipset).
