Intel brings new stepping from the i845
The chipset giant Intel has informed its partners and main customers that a new revision of the memory controller hub (MCH), which is part of the northbridge of the i845 chipset, will soon be released.
As Intel announced, this update has become necessary due to the goal of improved production and an increased demand for the Pentium 4 chipset. In well-informed circles, however, it is rumored that Intel wants to lay the foundation for the i845D chipset with the new revision of the memory controller hub, which is to appear at the beginning of next year and expands the current Pentium 4 chipset with DDR SDRAM support according to the PC1600 and PC2100 standards. The delivery of the new B0 stepping, which will replace the current A3 stepping, should start on November 26th.
