The Inquirer have obtained details of some upcoming chipsets from Intel to use next-gen "DDR3" memory, these to apparently surface sometime during Q3 of next year. The first two chipsets to show up will support either DDR3 1066 or DDR2 800 memory to allow for a more flexible upgrade path.
INTEL plans to introduce four new chipsets in 2007. It will debut with two that will support DDR 3 1066 or DDR 2 800. I think that customers will have to choose between the two and you will see boards with the same chipset supporting DDR 2 or DDR 3 memory. The first is called P35 and it comes with FSB 1333 support. This chipset is set to replace the G/P965 one.
The second one, set to debut in Q2 2007, is an integrated one called G33. This also supports FSB 1333 or slower, DDR 2 800 and DDR 3 1066. it has support for Intel Clear Video marchitecture but there's no whisper of DX 10. This chipset is set to replace the 945G/P 946GZ.
