Intel integrated graphics named?

HEXUS@Computex logo

With Intel's 965 core logic unveiled officially today, from the heady heights of the Taipei 101 no less, boards sporting the various incarnations of 965 are absolutely everywhere at Computex. Every last one of Intel's partners is displaying what's arguably the most interesting core logic release to officially support Core 2 Duo in all its first-run flavours, and it's the G version with integrated graphics that intrigues the most.

With support for Microsoft Windows Vista's Direct3D version 10, the integrated graphics core will form the foundation of the next-gen of laptop graphics in millions of new notebooks sold in the next few years, and as such garners high interest from all. What's not been known until now (and if it has I certainly apologise for missing it!) is the name.

Gigabyte apparently think it's Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3000, according to the spec list for the GA-965G-DS4. Looks like a very nice board, on the face of it. We look forward to a sample.
