  1. Well, it looks like the first PCI Express stuff is here! Intel's first desktop chip sets supporting the 2.5-Gbits/s serial PCI Express - which will ultimately replace legacy parallel PCI - are on their way sooner than we thought!

    "As expected, Intel Corp. is rolling out this month its first desktop chip sets to use the PCI Express bus. The Grantsdale and Alderwood chip sets are being released in tandem with a refreshed line of desktop Pentium processors."

    "The new chip sets are also the first to support a new high- definition audio standard Intel had previously disclosed under the code-named Azalea. The processors also use a new LGA-775 package that will pave the way for future dual-core and 64-bit processors."
