    Intel has updated the final specifications for G965 and Q965 Express chipsets. Intel originally intended to use same integrated graphics on both G965 and Q965 Express chipsets, but this update shows that they have decided to use two separate graphics core—GMA X3000 for G965 Express and GMA 3000 for Q965 Express. G965 Express with its GMA X3000 graphics core will support DirectX 9c, DirectX 10, OpenGL 1.5, Hardware vertex and pixel shager model 3.0 features. The GMA X3000 will have a 667 MHz graphics core clock with support for high dynamic range and Intel Clear Video Technology for enhanced video playback. Q965 Express chipsets will receive a less powerful graphics core, or the GMA 3000. It will meet the minimums to support Microsoft’s upcoming Windows Vista Premium with Aero Glass interface with support for DirectX 9c, Software vertex shader model 2.0/3.0, Hardware pixel shader model 2.0 and OpenGL 1.4 plus. Availability of G965 Express based products is expected sometime this month while we'll have to wait for the Q965 Express chipset till early September.
