Default Intel's Patsburg chipset comes with a few unexpected surprises

TODAY WE FOUND out some details about changes to Intel's upcoming Patsburg chipset for Sandy Bridge LGA-2011 processors and we were slightly surprised at what we heard. What struck as very unusual is the fact that Intel is developing a single chipset that is intended for at least both the high-end desktop Sandy Bridge B2 processors and the Xeon destined Sandy Bridge EN processors. Traditionally Intel has developed these types of chipsets separately, but apparently this is no longer the case.

The Patsburg chipset is destined to be Intel's first single chipset solution for its high-end desktop products and mid-range server solutions, as with the rest of Intel's range of Sandy Bridge processors, we should see the PCI Express controller being moved from a separate chip into the CPU itself. Unlike the LGA-1155 parts, the LGA-2011 processors are still set to feature PCI Express 3.0, although, unless AMD launches Southern Islands with PCI Express 3.0 support, it'll be quite a while before anything will take advantage of this faster interface.
