Like this one, there will be all kinds of new chipsets for Intel and AMD processors next year.
You can see what chipsets to expect from the following tables:
A chipset highlight should definitely be the dual processor chipset from AMD, which has been expected for some time. NVidia's first motherboard chipset should also cause quite a stir.
There won't be quite that many new chipsets for Intel's Pentium III and Celeron. With thei815 B-Stepping, Intel only fulfills its duty and expands the chipset to include support for the Intel Tualatin, but Intel will not provide DDR-SDRAM support for the 370 socket Intel Pentium 4 in the coming year
Manufacturer Chipset Appears Memory Important Features Intel Brookdale Q3 DDR - VIA PX266 Q4 DDR - SiS SiS645 Q4 DDR - ALi M1661 Q4 DDR AGP 8x
With Intel's Brookdale chipset, a new version of the Pentium 4 is introduced, as the Brookdale lays the foundation for Socket 478. It supports cheap SDRAM instead of Rambus. However, Brookdale is not planning to support DDR SDRAM until the beginning of 2002.
