Intel's New P35 Chipset
An overview of the Intel P35 chipset's architecture and feature set.
Intel is officially launching Bear Lake—the codename for the new P35 and G33 chipsets—at Taiwan's Computex trade show in early June. But motherboard manufacturers are already prepping new motherboards using the new chipset beforehand.
ExtremeTech will have reviews of two P35 motherboards later this week, but wanted to offer a technical overview of the new chipset. The new core logic adds new features and a refined memory controller. The G33 version uses Intel's GMA 3100 graphics core, which is essentially the same as the GMA 3000 core used in the G965 products. Intel will be launching a brand new integrated graphics core in a product called G35 in Q3 of 2007.

Intel also noted that the P35 and G33 chipsets will support the new 45nm Penryn processors, which are still on track for release late this year.
What P35 is not is a replacement for Intel's "enthusiast" chipset, the 975X. The current 975X is getting pretty long in the tooth, but the Santa Clara chip company plans on shipping the high end version, dubbed X38, about the same time as the G35.
Let's take a quick look at the features and architecture of Bear Lake.
