Intel I865 "Springdale" Chipset Review

I865G in Detail

 

Intel has of late been aiming at least one of their chipsets towards the integrated desktop market for OEMs such as IBM, Compaq and HP. The I865G is that exact chip. Costing $41US per 1000 units this chip is the most expensive of the Springdale line.

 

Designed using the same features as the I865PE such as DDR-400 memory and 800MHz FSB, the 865G supports Intel's Extreme Graphics 2. This is the same Graphics core that has been used in the I845GE chipset. While this graphics was faster than the original I845G graphics core, it is still very poor in even value terms. Xabre costs around the same to produce as the graphics core in the I865G, yet has more power than Intel's offerings. Intel has no plans to upgrade its graphics core until I877 and beyond, so if you plan to use the graphics on the 865G expect to have a big performance hit.
