Intel 6 series chipset to come in Q1 2011

Written by Fuad Abazovic

With Westmere CPUs


Intel's next generation chipset simply codenamed Intel 6 series Express chipset should launch in Q1 2011. This chipset will be necessary for Sandy Bridge generation of 32nm processor and it will finally get SATA 6GB/s in Intel chipsets.


Since CPU has a memory controller, display and some audio features integrated, there is not much for Intel to do in Northbridge, but we still don’t know if Intel 6 series can make it in one chip, we still expect two chips.

The codename of the chipset is Cougar Point and we can only hope that USB 3.0 support is also there.
