As the title says, has there been any talk from the Intel boys about a "X" chipset, such as X67 or X69 or something?
Or have they gone away from the X series and just sticking to the "H" and "P" chipsets?

Also has there been any talk about another chipset other than the "67" series for 1155?

H67 -- current mainstream integrated graphics chipset
P67 -- current mainstream overclocker chipset
Z68 -- upcoming mainstream integrated graphics and overclocker chipset

New stuff coming soon:

Sandy Bridge "E" (for Enthusiast) will have quad-channel memory with official speeds up to DDR3-1600 and reside in an LGA 2011 socket, so will have a new chipset (Waimea Bay). Another new feature: PCIe Gen 3 (PCIe 3.0). Sandy Bridge E will be available in four-core and six-core versions, with the latter having 15MB of L3 cache. All included in a 130W TDP processor, still made on the 32nm process. There will also be the Patsburg chipset for Sandy Bridge E with some more features.

Then there's Ivy Bridge, the 22nm version of Sandy Bridge. From what I've read, they will have LGA 1155 and LGA 2011 versions of that.

Note: The SB E info was from April 2010, so may be inaccurate. Source: Linky
