Apparently, Intel has finished designing its Bearlake motherboards based around the P35 and G35 chipsets. According to our source, we can expect a number of motherboards based around 'Bearlake', being displayed by manufacturers at CeBIT in various configurations.

But, Intel are also preparing to start work on Bearlake's successor - Eaglelake, whilst pairing it up with an ICH10 chipset to support the FSB Penryn processors.

...now working on ICH10 slated for launch next year. Intel has removed PS/2 and LPT ports support from the chipset. The new ICHs will include a new 10GB Ethernet controller and together with some new technology from Intel, it will reduce load on CPU and improve power consumption. Intel will include a Wireless Ethernet controller into ICH10 too. The Bearlake motherboard will employ IAMT technology and hardware based firewall. A performance improvement of 15% is expected with the new chipsets working together with Conroe processors.

It'll be interesting to see how Eaglelake and ICH10 perform in the face of AMD's Barcelona!

According to our source, all of the benchmarks we have seen previously of R600's performance are purely fictional, but R600 will not have an core clock lower than 800Mhz.
