Lynnfield And P55 To Launch September 1st

Say goodbye to P45 as well

This makes much more sense as the P55 chipset utilizes a new socket for Lynnfield CPUs and it wouldn't have done much good to have one without the other. Now the whole platform wll be launching together, negating this issue.

 

At the same time, the P45 chipset will be getting the axe. Those with LGA 775 processors will still have options through 2010 however, as the P43 and G41 chipsets will stay in production.
