Intel is planning to launch its Eaglelake mainstream desktop series chipsets in Q2 2008 and Q3 2008 and the Tylersburg-DT for high-end systems in Q4 2008, DigiTimes reports.
Eaglelake-G, the successor of the G35 and P35 targeting consumer mainstream platforms, will be paired with new ICH10 southbridges. The chips will be based on a 65nm process and come in versions with (G45) and without (P45) an integrated Intel GMA X4500 graphics core. In the third quarter Eaglelake-Q, for business platforms, will become available, noted the sources.
In the fourth quarter a high-end platform consisting of 45nm Nehalem-based processors (Bloomfield) and Tylersburg-DT chipsets will appear, according to the sources.
As with Eaglelake, Tylersburg-DT will pair with ICH10 series southbridges, added the sources.
