B replaces Q, Intel Prepares New Business Standard Desktop Chipset

Intel plans to put forth a new set of value/business segment desktop core-logic (chipset), the B33. This comes as a nomenclature change for the Q series chipsets (predecessors being Q33 and Q35), aimed at cost-effective business stable desktop platforms for the Small & Medium Enterprise (SME) segment, primarily OEMs get to built motherboard solutions that go into making branded business PCs. The successor would be named B43. Highlights include several security and management features, integrated graphics processor that is Microsoft DirectX 10 compliant called the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500, boards could feature dual outputs via DisplayPort, other output standards such as DVI are in the stash as well. The MCH supports DDR2 800 MHz or DDR3 1066 MHz memory, it will be accompanied by a "business-stable" ICH10D southbridge.

I never even knew Q35 chipsets existed :confused:

I'm also intrigued as to what "Anti-Theft Technology" is. Maybe if you try to nick the PC it'll turn into Robocop and destroy you.
