Of course they'll make a great chipset.

It won't change anything for the enthusiast market though, because most of us don't have the kind of cash to buy the overpriced Intel platform. Oh well, at least Intel isn't going to have proprietary dominance on the P4 platform.

If this is in fact true, we might just see either Via or Intel chipsets go the way of the dodo.

As far as budget chipsets go, Via used to be the prime contender, but with both SIS and ATI throwing their cards on the table, Via just might have to fold.

Intel might see this as a way of putting a stop to their chipset line and focus on processor production, which is what they should and need to be doing. If they set their minds(and wallets) on processors, we might just be suprised in 2006.

What I'd like to know is why people are still declaring Intel chipsets the pinnacle of the Intel platform. The SIS655TX and SIS656 are proven to perform better in benchmarks.

Uh...... if you have any intellectual opinion on the matter, you might wanna extend it past one sentence, Calculus.

Intel get out of chipsets?

About as likely as IBM getting out of PCs..... OOPS! - they have haven't they?

OK HP getting out of Printers is a better analogy. Seriously, last stats I read, admittedly about 2-3 years ago Intel had something like 75% of the chipset marketplace. I agree it's probably dropped off somewhat since then but would you give up even, say 45%, of an entire worldwide market?

I think it would be wise to drop off the radar in chipset manufacturing... at least for their desktop chipsets.

They are still the only company to tackle workstation and server chipsets for the Xeon, Itanium, and Itanium 2... but I bet if SIS threw their hands into the mix, the margin of favorability in the enterprise region would grow more significant.
SIS chipsets blow Intel chipsets out of the water when it comes to desktop performance, so they could easily overtake the workstation and server board market too.

Oh... and check out which company is actually selling more x86-64 processors: http://www.overclockers.com/tips00698/

You are right about one thing- Intel based boards sell like hotcakes, and I can't figure out why. What's really pathetic, though, is that Frys Electronics carries more Via based boards than SIS based boards...

I think its about time nForce chipset is a great chipset Im sure they will help boost Intel performance.....Intel should of changed over years ago instead of letting AMD do so much damage. Intel is a great CPU and now it will have the support from a great chipset to bring it all together......Who knows maybe I will go back to Intel once benchmarks are released. I am a Gamer and performance is everything I feel this is a step in right direction for Intel I hope so........ Intel has been getting by on the old Reputation but AMD has been winning over alot of Intel customers.... Good luck Intel. Competition is good for us consumers Go get em

i am sure this chipset will be designed for next-gen intel processors rather than p4, since they have been in market for too long now.

That's right.

When Intel's dual core processors(clocked at 3Ghz, 3.2Ghz, and 3.4Ghz with 1MB L2 cache PER core) are released sometime between January and April, they'll have numerous new chipsets on the market to support them.

Among them, the Intel 945, SIS 668 and/or 700, and hopefully an Nforce or two.

I hope NVIDIA provides a quality product for the Intel Platform
but does nopt let it impede in their develpoment for the AMD platform because it may hurt their reputation
and Intel will indefinetly Exclude competitors in a highly successful Centrino style CPU chipset Bundling marketing system for the Desktop.

It would be interesting if NVIDIA manages to build a chipset that supports both AMD and Intel cpu´s.

i can see it now
a mainboard with a switch and one 939 socket and one 775 socket
upgraders dream machine
shut down flick the switch from AMD to Intel lol

Carlos,
with both intel and amd both using iAMD64 it could be possible, though very very hard. and how expensive would that be?.. is it even feasable to do such a thing!? ...I HOPE SO! :) i would buy 2!

well i hope nvidia gets their act together on this, VIA is trying to release their "SLI" version for intel mobos. and it would be good to have to compitition to keep the level of quality up!

pfft ..f**k that! (almost sounds like work)

Sh*t this is very disappointing news.....every time a compay gets involved with Intel..... somehow they forget all about the competition.... I'm sure their vast treasury built up after releasing scores of overclocked P4's has something to do with it...
I just hope Nvidia dont stop their support to AMD.... although this could be ATI's chance to really shine in the motherboard business..
anyways whats the latest word on this?
