Havendale is a dual-core, Nehalem derived 45nm CPU and therefore it comes with integrated memory controller on the CPU side of the chip. The chip supports DDR3 and it interconnects with Ibex peak via a direct memory interface (DMI).
The Ibex peak Southbridge is interconnected with the GPU through Intel's Flexible Display Interface (FDI) and the chipset should provide display connectivity. The chipset also has an input/output part and something called a Manageability engine. The latter is something that Intel already has in its 4-series Northbridge.
Intel Havendale has iGFX - integrated graphics
