Intel Corp., the world’s largest supplier of microprocessors and chipsets, reportedly plans to delay commercial launch of its new P45 core-logic due to compatibility issues with graphics cards. This is not the first time when Intel delays its core-logic sets from original dates. Usually this does not affect partners of the chip giant seriously.
Intel will reportedly unveil its new-generation P45 core-logic set in mid-June, not in mid-May, as it was expected. The delay of the chipset is due to problems over compatibility between the chipset’s PCI Express 2.0 x16 port and graphics cards, DigiTimes reported citing sources among mainboard makers. The world’s largest maker of microprocessors reportedly promised that it would take 2-4 weeks to correct the issue.
Earlier this year ATI, graphics product group of Advanced Micro Devices, said that in order to avoid compatibility issues with various core-logic sets it implemented a special feature into its ATI Radeon HD 3000-series graphics processors that support PCIe 2.0 bus.
Intel P45 chipset supports various microprocessors by Intel Corp. with up to 1600MHz processor system bus. Additionally, the core-logic features PCI Express 2.0 bus and DDR2/DDR3 dual-channel memory controller. The chipset does not feature robust overclocking potential like Intel X48.
