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.

    Are y’all not even looking at publicly available product briefs from Intel anymore? 495 Series is Ice Lake PCH (ICP-LP) and 400 Series is Comet Lake-U PCH (CMP-LP). This has was announced publicly by Intel as far back as May/June.

    The information appears to be correct above, Intel doc clearly states the 495 chipset is on doc with the new 10th generation U processors. as 10nm CPU and 14nm PCH

    Who knows, maybe they will get to PCIe 4.0 this year...

    Do people even still upgrade? I used to upgrade all the time but stopped at X99. Ended up getting a Xeon 2696V3 which is an OCed version of a 2699V3 for $500. Still faster than todays latest i9-9900K for rendering.

    Quarterly reports out of Intel and AMD both seem to indicate healthy demand exists for new parts. Maybe you can infer there are a fair number of upgrades amid those purchase orders. Personally, I don't see a huge need to rush forward for new hardware. My Windows PC for my (very) modest gaming needs is a 11.6 inch Bay Trail laptop. My daily use Linux box is running an AMD A4-1250. My "heavy lift" virtual host is an old Athlon II P360. All of them are basically okay for the tasks they perform with the virtual host the only one that really needs more of anything, mainly a quad core versus a dual core since I'd like to have a second or third guest running for some of the tinkering I do, I'm sure lots of people need more, but it seems like most of them already have it from a CPU perspective.

    As if PCIe 4.0 has a tangible advantage right now. The only SSDs available for it are mediocre at best (sure, higher sequential throughput, but that hardly matters for the majority of real-life tasks). So what else is there?

    Give it some times. How do people on a tech site complain about tech moving forward. Very strange
