Default Intel Launches Low-Power 65nm 4 Series Chipsets for the Desktop

Intel Corporation has chosen the opening day of the 28th annual Computex trade show – the international electronics and technology information event held once a year in Taipei, Taiwan – to launch their next-generation 4 Series Express chipset family for mainstream desktop PCs. Consisting of the Intel P45, G45, P43, and G43 Express Chipsets, these new 4-series chipsets bring advancement in capabilities intended to satisfy even the most demanding gamers, power users, and HD video and audio aficionados alike. Among other advancements, Intel 4 Series Express chipsets (with the exception of X48), along with new 45nm dual- and quad-core CPUs scheduled for launch in the second half of 2008, will also introduce support for new low-power states intended to usher in a new era of energy efficient computing.

The 4-series chipset line will be manufactured exclusively using Intel's time-tested 65nm process technology, marking the first time Intel's PCI-E and memory core logic circuits have been scaled below 90nm. Nehalem, Intel's first CPU microarchitecture to incorporate an on-die integrated memory controller (IMC), will take this one step further by shrinking the transistor body length in these circuits down to just 45nm. Given the enormous costs associated with any manufacturing process change and the devastating implications an early failure would have on Intel's public confidence level, its no wonder they are being extreme cautious about this move. Anyone that needs any more convincing on this matter need only see what's happened to AMD as a results of their decision to be more aggressive than Intel in their quest for the production of the world's first "true" quad-core CPU. Indeed, it makes far more sense for Intel to test out just how well their current memory controller design works at 65nm before they go for the coup de grâce with the shrink to 45nm.
