Digi Times are reporting that Intel will launch two new chipsets for Pentium 4 value end users. Think of the new chipsets as a cut down Springdale with Single Channel DDR.
Intel plans to release two new Pentium 4 chipsets supporting single-channel DDR400 and an 800Mhz FSB (front-side bus), Taiwanese motherboard sources said. The 848P, formerly rumored as the 865PL, will be marketed for the value-line end-user market, while the 865GV will target OEM customers.More information @ Digi Times
Intel's 848P will share the same core and technologies as the existing 865P chipset, and only minor revisions will be needed to lower the 865P's memory bandwidth from dual-channel to single-channel and increase its FSB speed to 800Mhz.
