Lynx Point: chipsets for Intel Haswell

Some info filter on the series chipset Intel 8, in preparation to accompany the Haswell processors.

If you closely follow the news of the new Intel processors expected for the month of April (or even later, if the postponement of deliveries of mass is confirmed), you know that the Ivy Bridge will land with of new chipsets whose code name is Panther Point. It is the chipset of series 7, the Z77, H77, Z75 and B75 found on some motherboards announced recently, like Biostar Z77 express shown early in the week.

It is in this context already heard talk about following chipsets, called Lynx Point, and which emerge in 2013 to accompany the Haswell family processors. Of 8 series chipsets that bear six 6 Gbps SATA III ports and six USB ports 3.0, where the 7 Series chipsets will be limited to two SATA III ports (and four in SATA II) and four USB 3.0 ports. However, it would appear that Lynx Point chipsets do not natively handle the PCI Express 3.0, remaining blocked in the Gen 2.0. We also learn that the packaging of the 8 series chipsets should be smaller, also offering a TDP down.

That is all that we have learned this slide by Zol.
