Intel to evolve 'Bearlake' with 'Eaglelake'

Tweaks rather than radical changes

Intelligent flash storage arrays

IDF Even as Intel's 'Bearlake' chipsets - to ship as the P35, G35, X38 and so on - near release, details have emerged of their successors, codenamed 'Eaglelake' and targeting the chip giant's 45nm dual- and quad-core desktop CPUs.

According to leaked presentation slides, the chipsets' specifications are a small step forward from Bearlake. The key enhancements: support for 1,333MHz DDR 3 memory and the ability to host a DisplayPort monitor connection.

DisplayPort is an alternative to the more consumer-oriented HDMI display connection standard. Not that HDMI support is missing from Eaglelake, and neither is DVI. There are no details about integrated graphics, but it's clear there will be versions of Eaglelake that incorporate GPUs - the slide talks about Blu-ray and HD DVD support, suggesting the presence of HD video decoding technology.

PCI Express 2.0 is part of the plan too, for add-in graphics cards, again building on Bearlake's high-end, gaming-centric member, the X38.

Eaglelake family is scheduled to debut next year.
