"Broadwater" officially announced

Intel has officially introduced the new Core 2 supporting chipset—the P965 Express. Formerly known as Broadwater, the P965 Express features Intel Fast Memory Access and support for DDR2-800. Motherboards featuring P965 Express chipsets will come equipped with high definition audio and Intel Quiet System Technology which lowers system noise and heat levels. The integrated graphics equipped G965 Express is expected to arrive in the near future. Details on the integrated graphics core are scarce but we’ve learned from Gigabyte it will be named Graphics Media Accelerator X3000.

To significantly increase PC performance, the chipset incorporates Intel® Fast Memory Access, an updated Memory Controller Hub backbone architecture that optimizes the system’s memory bandwidth. It also supports DDR2 or double-data rate computer memory with data transfer speeds up to 800 MHz, enabling speedy access to files and a highly responsive PC. Chandrasekher also discussed a future integrated graphics chipset, called the G965 Express Chipset.  This product will include a new feature called Intel® Clear Video Technology, which enhances high-definition video playback including those from personal video recorders and digital camcorders for sharper image viewing quality. All of the 965 Express chipsets enable users to add a second external drive to a PC for extra data protection, Intel® High Definition Audio for theater-like sound quality and Intel® Quiet System Technology to reduce system noise and heat for a much quieter, yet higher-performing PC.


P965 and G965 Express boards are expected from ASUS, DFI, ECS, Epox, Gigabyte, MSI, Universal Abit and others. Important to note is that for ATI CrossFire users, the Broadwater family of chipsets will not support CrossFire. We reported this week that Gigabyte had been showing off P96x boards already, prior to Intel's official announcement.

Naming Scheme...

Hm... Graphics Media Accelerator X3000

Why does every company do this? It's the first of a type of product and they name it something representing otherwise.

Ever wonder why a company sells their first ever product and calls it the Whizy Wig 6900 Extreme Edition? Their second product released the same day is called the Whizy Wig 6000.

Whoa!
