The Inq had a look at Intel's chipset and motherboards roadmap for 2006. On the motherboards side it includes boards with codenames such as Westchester, Marble Springs, Guardfish, Rogers City and Shrewsbury. According to the roadmaps Intel will segmentate their motherboards from around Q2 2006.
Those segments will include P965 Express chipset based boards; G965 Express chipset boards; Q965 Express products and Q963 Express products.

Lemont, the DP965LT, is an ATX board including PCIe GFX, three PCI and three PCIe slots. It supports twin DDR-2 800 channels.

The G965 family is far more extensive. The Stoughton DG965OT is a µATX board with two PCI, one PCIe and integrated PCIe GFX. Westchester is similar but is Viiv ready and has three PCI, and three PCIe slots. Rogers City (DG965RY) is a variant of Westchester - that is to say Viiv unready.
