According to DigiTimes, citing sources at motherboard makers, Intel's Eaglelake series chipsets will start to appear in the second and third quarter of 2008. The chip will first arrive in the form of the G45 and P45. Along with ICH10 southbridges, the 65nm Eaglelake-G series will adopt a similar naming scheme to Bearlake; meaning that the G45 has integrated graphics (GMA X4500), while the P45 doesn't.
The same site that published the first 8800 GT review has now gotten hold of the upcoming 780i SLI chipset. In the majority of benchmarks, the chip falls short of the competition (X38, P35, 680i). As Fudzilla report though, the chip is an "interim solution" until the C73 is launched, which adds support for DDR3 and 1,600MHz FSB's.
While the X38 is yet to arrive in the hands of consumers, everybody's attention has already turned to the X48. Turkish site Donanimhaber.com have today scored a few pictures of two of Gigabytes X48 boards: the X48-DQ6 and X48T-DQ6. The first board pictured only supports DDR2, while the X48T-DQ6 adds support for DDR3, along with the X48's 1600MHz FSB's.
