Intel Offers New Features for 4 Series Chipset Based Platforms

Since the release of Intel's Core i7 and X58 Express Chipset, we have known that Intel plans to retain LGA775 for use as a midrange and entry level setup. In order to make the older socket more appealing, Intel are looking to add more features to subsequent chipset's.

Slide 1

In preparation for Microsoft' Windows 7, Intel 4 Series Motherboards will utilise the WDDM1.1 Driver. WDDM1.1 is a new driver model introduced into Windows 7 with better stability and performance compared with Vista WDDM1.0. As well as better driver support, G45 will see DDR3 come to the fore over DDR2.
Slide 2

G45 chip will be added into advanced HD De-interlacing technology to reduce cutting of object’s edging lines. Especially when the resolution of original image is not enough, the De-interlacing technology can optimize display output and provide clear HD image processor solutions. G45 also features 24Hz (24P) display support. The original image of movies is only 24P. Regardless of 50P or 60P output, it should pass through 3:2/2:2 pulldown technology, so some loss of graphics effects would be unavoidable. At present, the specs of images in Blue-ray and HD DVDs are 1080/24P. G45 supports 24P display, so it delivers better producers’ conception and theatre effects to users.

G45/G43 chip will have Media enhancement, providing Post Processing and Repeater Mode.
G43 supports 4 DIMMs, that is to say it support maximum 16GB (DDR2) or 8GB (DDR3) memory. G41 will support HDMI output. The Southbridge chip will utilize ICH7R instead of ICH7 to expand RAID support.

Attractive enough features to keep you rocking LGA775?

Im still undecided on this one. Dont get me wrong, nice clean build n all, just, everyone is doing red and black. Seen 3 projects today with it. But then again, we are ALWAYS limited on what we can do....

I know man, i've noticed a surge in red builds aswell. I kinda had to keep the red+black theme as everything was taken from the Mountain Mods I did earlier in the year (back when there weren't as many similarly themed builds) and there was no way I could afford to get all new fans, mouse & keyboard, switches, leds, CCFL's etc...

Like you say though there is a limit to whats possible, i've done red and green this year, and blue is common as muck... not really sure what direction i'll be going in the next build. :S

How about yellow?

How about yellow?

I had plans last year for a wasp-themed TJ-07.... Yellow coolant doesn't work well (mostly green) and decent yellow fans are impossible to find (I dont like the idea of taking apart and painting fans myself, everything i've ever painted has came out preposterously bad) . :(

Purple is something i've definately been thinking about, UV works pretty much perfect for a subtle purple glow. Gold and silver is the other effect thats been playing on my mind, dont think it's been done before either.:p

I have considered purple for one of my projects,may do my XBOX PC purple.

I like it, maybe as it is similar to mine (red and black ftw!) but I like what you done with the res, nice twist on it :D I think it looks ace.
The edging on your window looks a bit ragged edged though, might just be the pics resizing, apart from that nice rig

Ooh whats this? New gear you say, Mr postman?! Oh happy joy! :D

Edge is about to be rebuilt, really want to get this rig finished before I start the next build.

Some more anodised bolts courtesy of tastynuts... can finally mount the switch bay properly now.


More braid and shrink to re-do the bulgin switches and new fans when I get them (no i'm not Murder Mod'ing my PSU.... yet):


UN Designs pump bracket, EK Anti-Cyclone plate and a male-to-male fitting? We're saying "G'day mate!" to the horizontally mounted res people, going straight on da pump:


More EK goodness, a few choice pics of this absolutely beautiful little block:




And a Macro for Marcus :P


Anyways, stay tuned, more to come yadda yadda yadda....
