Intel has added a new Bearlake IGP chipset to their roadmap for the Entry segment. G31 Express chipset supports 1066FS, DDR2-800, PCIe x16, GMA X3000 architecture and will be pairing up with ICH7 series Southbridge. However, it will not be able to support Quad Core processors unlike the mainstream G33 and premium G35 chipsets. The package design is compatible to the current 945GZ chipset therefore motherboard manufacturer use the current PCB design without any modifications. Intel G31 Express chipsets will be able to pair up nicely with the Pentium E2140 (1.6GHz/800FSB/1MB), E2160 (1.8GHz/800FSB/1MB) and the Celeron 440 (2.0Ghz/800FSB/512KB) and 430 (1.8Ghz/800FSB/512KB) launching in Q3 this year.
