Neoseeker has published a preview of Intel's P35 "Bearlake" chipset, with plenty of pics and specs of Gigabyte's DDR2 P35 board and Asus' entire P35 lineup including their P5K Deluxe WiFi (DDR2 based) and P5K3 Deluxe WiFi (DDR3 based) boards.
"The P35 is the first chipset that will be released belonging to the "Bearlake" family - all members of which are made on a 65nm process, a which should allow for lower voltages and higher speeds. It will also bring official support for a 1333MHz FSB and DDR3 - significantly increasing the potential bandwidth between the processor, chipset and memory. The hopes of such an increase is allowing the excellent Core 2 design and future Penryn processors to better flex their digital muscles. The P35 has a tough job ahead of it - outperforming the excellent P965 and 975X chipsets. Though neither the P965 or 975X officially supporting a 1333MHz FSB, we have been able to run at up to 2020MHz FSB in one case."
