Intel plans to introduce Lakeport chips in 2Q 2005

Intel has informed Taiwanese clients that it plans to unveil its next generation chipset, codenamed Lakeport, in the second quarter of next year, according to sources at local PC and motherboard makers. Lakeport will replace the Grantsdale chipset, which will be released by the chipset giant early next week.

Local makers said that they were not informed whether the Lakeport chipsets will support dual-core processing, but some makers speculated on the new models after Intel stated it would be shipping dual-core processors in mid-2005.

Intel remains tight-lipped about Lakeport as it is concentrating on the forthcoming Grantsdale release, said the sources.

Rival Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has announced its plans to launch a dual-core processor, codenamed Toledo, for high-end client PCs in the second half of 2005, the sources added. Toledo will be the successor of the AMD 90-nm San Diego chips that will be launched in the second half of this year.

AMD has no plans to migrate its entry-level Athlon XP processors to a dual-core platform, the sources noted.
