Intel upgrades entry-level Core 2 Duo chipset

Santa Clara (CA) - Intel will be offering a slightly upgraded version of its 945GC integrated graphics chipset for Core 2 Duo, Pentium D and Pentium 4 HT processors beginning in early April of this year.

The chipset, which continues to be marketed as the lowest-cost chipset solution for Core 2 Duo systems, will be supporting DDR2-667 memory in addition to the DDR2-533 and DDR2-400 that are supported in today's 945GC chipsets.
