This is a list of motherboard chipsets made by Intel. It is divided into three main categories: those that use the PCI bus for interconnection (the 4xx series), those that connect using specialized "Hub Links" (the 8xx series), and those that connect using PCI Express (the 9xx series). The chipsets are listed in chronological order.

Early Chipsets

Intel licensed ZyMOS POACH chipset for Intel 80286 and Intel 80386SX processors.

List of early Intel chipset includes:[1]

  • 82350 EISA
  • 82350DT EISA
  • 82310 MCA
  • 82340SX PC AT
  • 82340DX PC AT
  • 82320 MCA
  • 82360SL was a chipset for the mobile 80386SL and 80486SL processors. It integrated DMA controller, an interrupt controller PIC, serial and parallel ports, and power-management logic for the processor.

Summary:

  • 915P (Grantsdale)
    • Supports Pentium 4 on an 800 MHz bus. Uses DDR memory up to 400 MHz, or DDR2 at 533 MHz. Replaces AGP and CSA with PCI Express, and also supports "Matrix RAID", a RAID mode designed to allow the usage of RAID levels 0 and 1 simultaneously with two hard drives. (Normally RAID1+0 would have required four hard drives)
    • Sub-versions:
      • 915PL - Cut-down version of 915P with no support for DDR2 and only supporting 2 GB of memory.
  • 915G (Grantsdale-G)
    • 915P with an integrated GMA 900. The core is compliant with Vertex and Pixel shader versions 2.0, and has similar functionality to GeForce FX 5200 64bit and Radeon 9100 IGP, though it does not have Transform & Lighting (T&L) features.
    • Sub-versions:
      • 915GL - Same feature reductions as 915PL, but supports 4 GB of memory. No support for external graphics cards.
      • 915GV - Same as 915G, but has no way of adding an external graphics card.
      • 910GL - No support for external graphics cards or 800 MHz bus.
  • 925X (Alderwood)
    • Higher end version of 915. Supports another PAT-like mode and ECC memory, and exclusively uses DDR-II RAM.
    • Sub-versions:
      • 925XE - Supports a 1066 MHz bus.
  • 945P (Lakeport)
    • Update on 915P, with support for Serial ATA II, RAID mode 5, an improved memory controller with support for DDR-II at 667 MHz and additional PCI-Express lanes. Support for DDR-I is dropped. Formal dual-core support was added to this chipset.
    • Sub-versions:
      • 945PL - No support for 1066 MHz bus, only supports 2 GB of memory.
  • 945G (Lakeport-G)
    • A version of the 945P that has a GMA 950 integrated, supports a 1066 MHz bus.
    • Sub-versions:
      • 945GZ - Same feature reductions as 945PL but with an integrated . No support for external graphics cards.
  • 955X (Glenwood)
    • Update for 925X, with additional features of "Lakeport" eg. PAT features and ECC memory, and uses DDR2.

5 Series Chipsets

Core i Series Chipsets

The Nehalem architecture, which is the basis of the Core i7 brand and projected additional brands, moves the memory controller onto the processor. For high-end Nehalem processors, the X58 IOH acts as a bridge from the QPI to PCI-Express peripherals and DMI to the ICH10 southbridge. For low-end Nehalems, the integrated memory controller (IMC) is an entire northbridge (some even having GPUs), and the PCH acts as a southbridge. There is currently no ECC support.

Notes

Note 1: The Pentium Pro, Pentium II/III, and the Celerons based on them are essentially the same design with minor internal revisions and varying cache designs. Because of this, the same chipset can be used for Socket 8, Socket 370, Slot 1, or Slot 2 designs with any CPU in the P6 family. In practice however, newer chipset designs are usually only made for the newer processor packages, and older ones may not be updated to accommodate for recent package designs. In addition, certain chipsets may be implemented in motherboards with different processor packages, much like how the 440FX could be used either with a Pentium Pro (Socket 8) or Pentium II (Slot 1). A new feature for the latest Intel chipsets is hardware virtualization support (VT-d).[23] The chipset support for this technology is not very clear for the moment.[24]

Note 2: The Intel 82943GML mobile chipset unofficially supports Core Duo, Core 2 Duo, and Pentium Dual Core processors as well as 667 MHz FSB, which is a popular upgrade for many older notebook computers such as certain models of Acer Aspire 3680.

This is a list of motherboard chipsets made by Intel. It is divided into three main categories: those that use the PCI bus for interconnection (the 4xx series), those that connect using specialized "Hub Links" (the 8xx series), and those that connect using PCI Express (the 9xx series). The chipsets are listed in chronological order.

Summary:

  • 915P (Grantsdale)
    • Supports Pentium 4 on an 800 MHz bus. Uses DDR memory up to 400 MHz, or DDR2 at 533 MHz. Replaces AGP and CSA with PCI Express, and also supports "Matrix RAID", a RAID mode designed to allow the usage of RAID levels 0 and 1 simultaneously with two hard drives. (Normally RAID1+0 would have required four hard drives)
    • Sub-versions:
      • 915PL - Cut-down version of 915P with no support for DDR2 and only supporting 2 GB of memory.
  • 915G (Grantsdale-G)
    • 915P with an integrated GMA 900. The core is compliant with Vertex and Pixel shader versions 2.0, and has similar functionality to GeForce FX 5200 64bit and Radeon 9100 IGP, though it does not have Transform & Lighting (T&L) features.
    • Sub-versions:
      • 915GL - Same feature reductions as 915PL, but supports 4 GB of memory. No support for external graphics cards.
      • 915GV - Same as 915G, but has no way of adding an external graphics card.
      • 910GL - No support for external graphics cards or 800 MHz bus.
  • 925X (Alderwood)
    • Higher end version of 915. Supports another PAT-like mode and ECC memory, and exclusively uses DDR-II RAM.
    • Sub-versions:
      • 925XE - Supports a 1066 MHz bus.
  • 945P (Lakeport)

5/6 Series Chipsets

Core i Series Chipsets

The Nehalem microarchitecture, which is the basis of the Core i7 brand and projected additional brands, moves the memory controller onto the processor. For high-end Nehalem processors, the X58 IOH acts as a bridge from the QPI to PCI-Express peripherals and DMI to the ICH10 southbridge. For mainstream and lower-end Nehalems, the integrated memory controller (IMC) is an entire northbridge (some even having GPUs), and the PCH acts as a southbridge. There is currently no ECC support.

Notes

Note 1: The Pentium Pro, Pentium II/III, and the Celerons based on them are essentially the same design with minor internal revisions and varying cache designs. Because of this, the same chipset can be used for Socket 8, Socket 370, Slot 1, or Slot 2 designs with any CPU in the P6 family. In practice however, newer chipset designs are usually only made for the newer processor packages, and older ones may not be updated to accommodate for recent package designs. In addition, certain chipsets may be implemented in motherboards with different processor packages, much like how the 440FX could be used either with a Pentium Pro (Socket 8) or Pentium II (Slot 1). A new feature for the latest Intel chipsets is hardware virtualization support (Intel VT-d).[27] The chipset support for this technology is not very clear for the moment.[28]

Note 2: The Intel 82943GML mobile chipset unofficially supports Core Duo, Core 2 Duo, and Pentium Dual Core processors as well as 667 MHz FSB, which is a popular upgrade for many older notebook computers such as certain models of Acer Aspire 3680.
