    Intel adds 956 chipset family, follow up to 915

    Once there was just going to be a new i965 family of chipsets, but now the more mainstream i915 is also getting a follow up family, in the form of i946.
    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, indicated the sources. 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, the sources noted.

    Aren't they still going to have a lot of heat issues though? especially with dual core - My P4 downstairs runs hot as it is - and thats only single core.
