DigiTimes reports Intel has chosen Foxconn to produce its P45 and G45 motherboards. These boards are expected in Q2 2008.
Although shipments of Intel's motherboards are still far behind first-tier brands, the company is not giving up pushing its own-brand business to maintain leadership in design, development and marketing.
The codename of Intel's P45 motherboard is Skyberg (DP45SG). The product will support 45nm-based 1333MHz FSB Core 2 Extreme, quad-core and dual-core CPUs. The G45 motherboards, codenamed Icedale (DG45ID) and Fly Creek (DG45FC), will feature support for HDMI, DisplayPort and DVI. Both will support 1333MHz FSB quad-core and dual-core processors.
The major difference between Icedale and Fly Creek is that the former will support up to four DIMMs per memory channel while the latter only two.
