It seems that G35 Express chipset is going for a bit of a downgrade where previously it is able to support both DDR3-1066/800 and DDR2-800/667 and now only the DDR2. Also the integrated HD-DVD and HDMI features are removed. It can now only pair up with ICH8 series instead of ICH9 and is using the 965 package instead of the new Bearlake package. Samples are expected to be available at Week 15 and mass production slated for Q3 2007.
