Intel is scheduled to launch the 946-chipset family in conjunction with the ICH7 southbridge in the second quarter of 2006, the same time when the 965 series bundled with the ICH8 will also hit the market. The full-line of Broadwater chipsets will be built using 90nm process technology and are aimed at pushing forward migration to DDR2 memory and dual-core CPU architecture. By the first half of next year, Intel is expected to launch about seven chipsets that not only includes the complete Broadwater chipset line, but also the 945GT chipset for small-size PCs and the integrated 945GZ.
