i815G and i815EG from Intel

Intel has given the i810 a major overhaul and will replace it with the i815G and i815EG. Since the two new chips are based on the B-stepping of the i815, they support PC133 SDRAM, but have no AGP port.

The difference between the two new chips is the Southbridge that is used. The G version only has ICH and therefore only offers UDMA/66 support. The i815EG chip, however, has ICH2 and thus UDMA/100 support. When the two new chips hit the market, the i810 will be discontinued. The uniform chipsets based on the i815 now cover both the low-end and mid-range market.
