INTEL’S latest roadmap has a new ATI motherboard listed. Intel is happily shipping its D101GGC desktop motherboard for a few months now, but it’s time for a Q1 2006 update. You can find all about Intel’s first Xpress 200 board here
The next motherboard based on ATI Radeon Xpress 200 chipset is scheduled for Q1 2006 and will be known as Grand County 2. Intel will use the rather less impressive D101GGC2 name for it.
The board will be very similar to its predecessor, but this time will support DDR 2 memory. D101GGC supports DDR1 memory only. It is a micro ATX motherboard with integrated graphic and PCIe graphic slot, it has two PCI slots and one PCIe slot.
Intel will make one more motherboard based on ATI’s chipset and this one is scheduled for Q2 2006 and goes by the codename Gem Valley. We will tell you more about this motherboard soon, as this one might even have HDMI support. Stay tuned, we need to sniff more.
