Available in consumer, Viiv and vPro versions
In the next few weeks, Intel will launch several new chipsets for its upcoming
Core 2 Duo platform
. The new 96x
family slated for a July launch comes in four primary flavors -- Q965, Q963, G965, and P965 -- all of which run at 1066MHz front side bus.
Q965 and Q963 are chipsets designated for use in Intel’s vPro business platform. Both chipsets will support upcoming Core 2 Duo processors but differ in terms of supported features. At the top of the vPro spectrum is the Q965 with support for DDR2-800 and Intel Active Management with System Defense features. Intel is marketing the Q965 as a performance chipset for business users. Business users who simply want a basic chipset without the fancy Intel Active Management and System Defense features can opt for the lower-end Q963. To keep costs down the Q963 loses DDR2-800 support and is limited to DDR2-667.
G965 will be the only new mainstream desktop chipset with an integrated next generation core with Vista Premium support. The new G965 will gain support for DDR2-800 and support Core 2 Duo processors. An integrated graphics-less version will be available as the P965 too.
Intel doesn’t have a replacement for the premium 975X chipset previously launched in December till Q2’07 when the
. This is a bit strange as the 975X is limited to DDR2-667 memory and manufacturers have reported P965/G965/Q965 chipsets outperforming the 975X in single-card configurations. This leaves an opportunity for NVIDIA to market their recently announced nForce 590 SLI Intel Edition towards the premium market.

I will probably go with an nvidia chipset. I dont care about SLI/Crossfire. I just want something that will be able to overclock. Hopefully the conroe can overclock.

nvidia doesn't have a good track record with intel chipsets so far. i'm sticking with an intel chipset.
