Intel Bearlake Chipset To Support DDR3

We already knew that the Bearlake chipset can support the faster 1333MHz FSB and the future Core processors such as Kentsfield and Wolfdale. Bearlake series chipsets come in 3 different forms; P, Q and G and will be paired up with ICH9 series such as ICH9, ICH9R, ICHDO & ICHDH. We have learned that Bearlake includes the support for the faster DDR3-800/1066 memories. DDR3 offers a lower 1.5V Vdd compared to 1.8V on the DDR2 as well as 8bits Prefetch compared to 4bits.
