Recently Intel has validated DDR3 chips from seven memory makers. This includes Elpida, Hynix, Micron, Qimonda, Nanya and Samsung.

The validated chips were all 512Mb and 1Gb chips with clockspeeds of 800MHz and 1066MHz.
Initially the company’s P35 and G33 chipsets will only support PC3-8500 (DDR3 1066MHz) memory. It seems that the advanced X38 core-logic will support PC3-10600 (DDR3 1333MHz) memory speed later this year.
