Intel's upcoming dual-channel chipsets
The colleagues from x-bit Labs have summarized the previous information about the upcoming Intel chipsets with dual-channel memory interface in a table. The data is based on the rumors from the Internet up to now.
The chipsets that have become known so far are code-named 'Granite Bay', 'Placer' and 'Springdale' and should also come onto the market in this order . We want to show you the table here in an adapted form:
Here, too, it is noticeable that Intel is the first wants to switch to Serial-ATA and PC2700 DDR-RAM next year, but then also increased the FSB to 667 MHz.

To what extent the information about the dual-channel chipsets will prove to be true remains to be seen.
