    Intel is on track for a second-quarter roll-out of its 946GZ and 946PL low-end chipsets to replace the 945GZ and 945PL. Intel introduced its 945/955 chipsets, which appeared in the second half of 2005, as the mainstream solutions for the dual-core Pentium 4 platform then at the end of 2005, the company announced its 975 model to replace the 955. Motherboard makers are now saying that the availability of so many chipsets is complicating production planning and they need time to make transition. In addition when Intel resumed the production of the entry-level 865 and 915 AGP, the low-end chipset market was jammed with low-cost third-party solutions. The roll-out will complete the Broadwater product line, with the new chipsets joining the 945P/945G-replacement P965/G965 mid-range and the 955X-replacement 975X high-end chipsets.
