The 845G integrated chipset, Intel's new attempt to mop up the graphics business, is to launch in April, according to Digitimes.

Citing industry sources, the Taiwanese chip news service reckons that Intel could take 10-30 per cent of the low-end graphics business simply through its dominance of the market for so-called 'system PCs'.

But Intel will face a tougher time in the "clone market", if history -(with the 810 and 815 PIII integrated graphics chipsets) is anything to go by. And as the 845G is supposed to be functionally equivalent to the Nvidia Geforce 2 MMX400, it looks like Nvidia and ATI have little to fear - yet - on the performance front.
