On Intel´s high-end Napa chipset

Intel plans to cancel development of the high-end 955XM chipset for its next-generation mobile platform, codenamed Napa, but beef-up the DDR2-memory support for the two remaining Napa chipsets still on its roadmap, according to sources in the motherboard industry.

Intel had originally planned to launch three chipsets for its Napa platform, with the 945PM and 945GM slated to support 2GB of dual-channel DDR2 memory and the high-end 955XM scheduled to support 4GB of memory, sources at motherboard makers noted. However, the chip giant has removed the 955XM from its Napa chipset lineup, and increased the amount of memory supported by the 945PM and 945GM to 4GB, the sources stated.

In related news, Intel server-use dual-core Itanium 2 and Xeon processors, including the Montecito Itanium 2, Xeon MP and Xeon DP, are expected to begin hitting the market in the third quarter of this year, the sources indicated. The Montecito chip will be unveiled as the Intel Itanium 2 9000 series, and the Xeon chips will include the Xeon MP7000 series based on the MP Paxville, and the Xeon DP5000 based on the DP Dempsey, the sources hinted.
