    Intel was reported today to bring forth the official announcement of its 4-series chipsets at Computex 2008 (June 3-7, 2008). First Intel 4-series P45 and P43 motherboards will start shipping shortly after wards. The report continues with four more 4-series chipsets that will ship two to three weeks after P45 and P43 series, due to hardware problems that need to be fixed. During that time Intel will work on the G45 and G43 IGP versions to correct issues with VC1 hardware decoding and to increase the graphics core frequency to 800MHz. Enterprise-based Q45 and Q43 chipsets are also set to undergo some changes because of system stability issues found in the current B2 versions when virtualization technology for directed I/O (Intel VT-d) is active.

    These are Core 2 chipsets, they have nothing in common with Nehalem or motherboards that will support it. ;)

    Nope, G and Q are prefixes Intel uses for its different chipsets. I'm not exactly sure, but they started putting the G and Q letters in front after P965 was released.
