I'm going to start this article off with a preface. At this time I do not have an unreleased motherboard with an Intel chipset in my possession. I am unfortunately under NDA with a motherboard manufacturer about their specific product that is, at the time of writing, not in my possession.
I have not received any information about this product from any official or unofficial source other than the fact that something is coming in the mail and I can't talk about it until sometime in the future. Hopefully this is enough to keep the legal hounds off my behind.
Today we are going to play a brief game of connect the dots with information that is publically available. We are going to mix two parts of facts and one part speculation. The pinch of speculation has been verified by two sources and in the media world that gives it enough validity to 'go to print' so to speak. The overall picture will be a little cloudy, but I think enough of a silhouette will pass through to give us a close representation of what's to come. The good ole' "Things That Might Be Happening, but What Do I Know?" editorial!
Let's just dive in with the facts we know and then start to put the picture together.
