Intel Paperwork Present Driver Assist for Unannounced 400-Collection Chipsets
Intel does not often disclose its own chipset names in advance, but from time to time we get glimpses into accidental publication. This week, driver documents from the company show software support for unannounced 400-series and 495 chipsets, which are led to believe will be for future generations of products, following on from the 300-series products.
As it turns out, Intel’s chipset drivers have supported the company’s 400-series and 495 chipsets as of mid-August. Software support may indicate that the launch of Intel’s new platforms is imminent. Meanwhile, we can only guess about their specifications and capabilities.
Another interesting addition to Intel’s family of chipsets is the H310D PCH, found in the same document. Based on its name, we can suspect that this is a yet another version of the entry-level H310, but we have no idea about its peculiarities. The original H310 was built on 14nm, the H310C was built on 22nm, so who knows what the H310D will be.
