Intel integrated G35 supports DirectX 10

Chipset Roadmap Q3 2007
Tue Dec 19 2006, 11:16
IT looks like Q3 2007 will be very exciting for the industry. A lot of people will be on their holidays, but never the less Intel plans to introduce its first DirectX 10 chipset then.

It is called G35 and this is a brand name not the code name, it seems. It supports Intel Clear Video marchitecture and DirectX 10. It supports CPUs with 1333 and probably slower as well.

It supports both DDR 3 1066 memory and DDR 2 800 at the same time. It can and will be matched with ICH9, ICH9R, ICH9DH Southbridges.

The new chipset called 3 series just as the old 945, 946 and 965, supports Vista Premium Logo if it uses dual channel memory, has 1GB of system memory and an adequate memory speed to run Vista Aero desktop interface. I guess this means it will support Aero Glass as we heard that even 945 can do it, but not so well.

The final definition of the G35 is still under evaluation but traditionally we don't expect much from Intel integrated chipset as it will probably run DX10 titles with 10 FPS. That's why it's called DX 10 compatible. µ
