i965 Chipset

In June 2006, Intel launched its 965 Express chipset, the formerly codenamed Broadwater, developed for use with platforms which feature the its Intel Core 2 processors. Incorporating Intel Fast Memory Access and an updated Memory Controller Hub (MCH) backbone architecture, the new chipset significantly increases overall system performance through the optimisation of available bandwidth and reduction of memory access latency. This updated MCH with Intel Fast Memory Access also includes wider internal data buses that support dual-channel DDR2 memory technology at 800MHz (up to 12.8GBps of peak memory bandwidth) for greater platform performance and memory flexibility. The Intel 965 Express chipset series comprises four models: P965: the P965 Express chipset is targeted at home users, with advancements in memory performance, system responsiveness, power efficiency and data protection. G965: the G965 includes Intel’s most advanced integrated graphics module to date – the GMA X3000-series – and is intended for use in low noise Viiv-based systems. Q965: the Q965 is designed for business use, incorporating the integrated GMA 3000 graphics processor but also supporting the use of an add-in video card. Q963: the Q963 has many of the same features found on Q965, but lacks support for the installation of a discrete video card. Its features identified in the following table: Feature Description Supports Intel Viiv Technology Control the music, movies, games and photos you want to enjoy both from your personal entertainment collections and endless entertainment options from a wide range of Intel Viiv technology verified service providers delivered right to your living room. 1066/800/533 MHz System Bus Supports Intel Core 2 Duo processor, Intel Pentium D processor, Intel Pentium...
