Intel's upcoming G35 chipset, which is slated to arrive in the third quarter of this year, won't have DirectX 10 support until 2008:
Intel's G35 chipset was originally planned to support DirectX 10 at launch time, but due to the delay of a DirectX 10 driver, Intel currently schedules to launch the alpha version DirectX 10 driver in fourth quarter of 2007 and will launch the final version in first quarter of 2008 if the process goes well, noted the sources.

In addition to desktop chipsets, Intel's Centrino notebook platform (Santa Rosa) chipsets, GM965 and GL960 (scheduled to launch in third quarter) will both delay their support of DirectX 10 until first quarter of 2008 too, added the sources.
