The latest Intel roadmap has revealed the codename for the next Intel Desktop board based on the Bearlake-X chipset. Bonetrail will be the successor to the current popular Bad Axe and the upcoming Bad Axe 2 boards. It is slated for launch in Q3 next year. Bonetrail will support Kentsfield probably even 45nm Penryn core, DDR3 1333, dual x16 GFX, PCI Express 2.0 and will be paired up with ICH9DH Southbridge. Originally, the codename is Black Sword but perhaps Bonetrail sounds nicer to the marketing guys. Early samples of Bearlake A0 chipsets will be out in 1-2 months time. We have a hunch that the board will be called D995XBT. On a side note, Intel has added 945GC/ICH7 chipset to their roadmap and their uATX desktop board will be known as D945GCCR (Coconut Creek) in Q1’07. The 945GZ chipset cost $ 35.
