Crippled G43


Intel has just launched G45 and G43 chipsets and let me explain you what they are all about. G45 is the top of the offer, and it has full video decoding acceleration including MPEG2, VC1 and AVC. This is Intel's first DirectX 10 chipset.


The chipset supports HDCP, HDMI, DVI and Display Port and PCIe 16X graphics. Moreover it supports two memory channels with up to two dims per channel, it supports Vista Premium logo, ICH10 R  and Intel remote wake technology.

G43 has single channel memory support and it misses hardware decode acceleration but the rest looks the same like G45.

G41 actually looks very similar to G43 as it doesn’t have a hardware video acceleration engine and it also has single channel memory. It shares the same X4500 graphics engine but it lacks HDMI support. It can support DVI or Display Port and it also misses out the remote wake technology.

This chipset interconnects with ICH7 which definitely ensures that this chipset will come for entry level market and cheaper boards. It is scheduled for Q4 2008 launch.
