The DailyTech have acquired some details from Chilehardware on Intel's upcoming G33-express IGP chipset, based on their Bearlake platform. The development of the chipset is evidently near an end as they're currently sampling it and expect it to launch sometime next quarter with the P35 express.
Motherboards based on Intel's G33 Express will support upcoming Yorkfield and Wolfdale 45nm processors. Processors with front-side buses up to 1333 MHz are supported with G33 Express based motherboards. As with the Intel P35 Express, the G33 Express supports either DDR3-1066 or DDR2-800 memory.
The integrated graphics core inside the G33 Express will be similar to the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3000 found in the current G965. Intel Clear Video Technology will remain on the G33 Express graphics core as with the G965.
With Intel Clear Video Technology, the G33 Express is able to perform MPEG2 decoding, de-interlacing and video scaling in hardware. Motherboard manufactures are also able to integrate HDMI or DVI outputs with the available SDVO connection.
