Intel delays next-gen integrated chipsets to fix video bug

Eaglelake to get Computex launch

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

When does an Intel chipset launch? When it's first mentioned by the company in public? The next time? The time after that? The 'Eaglelake' chipset family has been discussed by Intel on several occasions, but it'll apparently be truly launched next month.

The Eaglelake line - aka the 4 series - comprises the P45, P43, G45, G43, Q45 and Q43, and will be formally launched at the Computex show, held in Taipei in early June.

No great surprise there: Intel has already confirmed a Q2 launch date, and Computex is the customary location for launches of this kind.

More interestingly, the chips will go out to motherboard makers in the third week of June, industry moles have told local newssite DigiTimes, which probably means mobo availability in July.

That's for discrete, 'P' parts - integrated, 'G' chipsets could arrive up to three weeks further down the track thanks to a glitch in GPU hardware that decodes the VC1 hi-def video codec, the site claims. Ditto the enterprise-oriented, 'Q' parts, which are being delayed pending a fix for a Virtualisation Technology bug.

The Eaglake series is designed to be PCI Express 2.0 compliant and support 1333MHz DDR 3 memory. Some integrated versions will be able to host DisplayPort monitor connectors.
