Intel Corp has introduced the new Intel 845 chipset for Intel Pentium 4 processor-based PCs.

The chipset supports PC133 SDRAM memory and is targeted at the high-volume, mainstream consumer and corporate desktop PC market segment. It consists of two controller hubs connected to each other through Intel's high-bandwidth hub architecture. The 82845 memory controller hub (MCH) features support for a 400 MHz system bus delivering a high-bandwidth connection between the Pentium 4 processor and the rest of the platform and providing three times the system bus bandwidth over platforms based on Intel Pentium III processors according to the company.

In addition the MCH has wider data paths, a write cache and flexible memory refresh technology to enable optimum PC133 SDRAM performance, as well as the latest graphics devices through the 1.5V AGP4x interface enabling 1 Gb/s of graphics bandwidth.

The Intel 845 Chipset is priced at USD42 in 1,000-unit quantities.

Intel has also launched the Intel application accelerator software package, which is designed to increase storage subsystem performance, stability and usability, and two desktop boards - the ATX form factor Intel desktop board D845WN and the smaller micro-ATX form factor Intel desktop board D845HV. Pricing was not revealed.
