The following brief describes the Intel® 845G chipset, designed to work with the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor. The 845G chipset delivers new levels of performance through several leading-edge innovations, including:

  • Support for either a 533MHz or 400MHz system bus.
  • Intel® Extreme Graphics, an integrated graphics core that renders 3D and other digital entertainment faster and better than ever.
  • Hi-Speed* USB 2.0 for 40 times the bandwidth of the original USB 1.1 specification.

The 845G chipset also offers other performance and manageability features that establish a platform for the future. And when you choose an Intel® Chipset, you get the most comprehensive set of drivers, maximum stability, and all the latest PC technologies.
