Intel P45 and X48 to arrive at the same time?

Posted on Friday, December 14 2007 @ 00:32:52 CET by

TweakTown reports Intel's P45 and X48 chipsets may arrive at the same time:
Known as P45, this replacement mainstream chipset will be more or less a subtle adjustment to the tried and true P35 chipset many of us have opened arms to; P45 will bring 1600MHz FSB support along with a few minor bug fixes and changes.

P45 might be a redundant name to anyone in the UK, but that hasn’t stopped Intel from apparently using the name for its next mainstream motherboard chipset. According to a motherboard manufacturer that we’ve spoken to, Intel is planning to introduce the new chipset in 2008, possibly as early as January, and the rumour is that it will basically be the same as the P35, but with a 1,600MHz front side bus.

The timing of the launch sounds about right to us, as Intel is also planning to launch its first CPU with a 1,600MHz front side bus, the Core 2 Extreme QX9770, in January 2008. Intel also plans to announce its X48 chip for enthusiasts at this time, which supports the 1,600MHz front side bus as well.
